Lista is at the forefront of lean manufacturing initiatives, which help to eliminate waste, improve efficiency, and create the highest-quality products available. Our value stream mapping process allows us to create a current state and future state, using industry best practices to streamline manufacturing so that our customers receive their workspace solutions in an efficient, effective and timely manner.
For a closer look at how Lista helps businesses implement the 5S system by maximizing the available space and improving the overall organization of their facilities, we sat down with Peter Lariviere, former President of Lista International North America. The following video provides Peter’s perspective on Lista’s adoption of lean manufacturing concepts and strategies:
Here are a few of the video’s key takeaways:
- In order to stay competitive in today’s marketplace, a company must understand its customers’ wants and needs and design processes to meet those expectations
- Lista’s lean manufacturing tool kit starts with a value stream mapping process, which can be used in the 5S process to analyze the material, process, and information flow (i.e., determine how things have been done in the past vs. opportunities for workplace organization and housekeeping improvements)
- Lean manufacturing is designed and developed with the intent of work space efficiency and effectiveness
Eliminating waste and improving efficiency for our customers is always a priority for Lista. Has your company explored the many benefits (i.e., reducing part retrieval and error times, improving safety, lowering manufacturing costs) of lean manufacturing and 5S workplace organization methodology?
