Continuous Improvement

Make your CI program the foundation for world-class manufacturing.

An effective continuous improvement program drives overall corporate performance.

Some industrial companies make the mistake of thinking that technology will fix everything.  However, continuous improvement isn’t about just about upgrading your technology.  In fact, small changes can mean big returns.  If your organization is blinded by technology instead of focusing on improving business processes, it’s probably missing the mark on improving quality, cost, and delivery.

  • Many companies haven’t formalized their CI program or don’t consistently apply recognized continuous improvement best practices
  • Some continuous improvement programs have been put in place alongside current culture, rather than embedding CI into the corporate culture
  • Program scope or objectives are often too narrow or restrictive, like limiting focus to only quality instead of broad areas like operational results; customer, employee, and supplier relationships; environment, health, and safety performance; and other broad business objectives
