Making Productivity Result from Lean Programmes

Wishing to reduce manufacturing cost in your factory? Need more capacity?

Or just concerned about how to engage your workforce in improvement?

Visit us at the Lean, Productivity and Continuous Improvement Summit 7th November at Ricoh Arena, Coventry

Jeremy Praud, Head of UK and Europe will be speaking on;

Making Productivity Result from Lean Programmes

Both UK Manufacturing Output and Value increased steadily from 1945 to 2007, but in the last 10 years have stalled.  Many Food & Drink manufacturers have embarked on Lean programmes, and M&S have even introduced Lean audits across their suppliers, but why are these improvement programmes not having the impact on productivity that might have been expected?  Jeremy Praud explores what makes Food & Drink Manufacturing different to Automotive, where the opportunity for productivity improvements can be found, and looks at the steps being taken by leading FMCG businesses to optimise the rate of results, and ensure they hit the bottom line.

Prefer a more hands on approach? Why not join Erica Bassford, Head of Aspire, for her workshop;

Prioritising Line Improvement – and making it stick

When it comes to implementing Manufacturing Improvement programmes, it is vital that managers are equipped with the skills to successfully manage and motivate their teams to drive and sustain improvement activity. In this practical workshop, complete with hands on ‘learning by doing’, we will be showing delegates how to engage shop floor personnel to apply new improvement techniques in the workplace.

Or if you are happy to have a chat come along to our stand O10 where one of our team will be pleased to discuss your specific challenges.

Testimonials

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by Lauras International that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.

Fraser Scott, Head of Farming Operations Arable/Potatoes

Before Lauras came we were a family run company and things had been done the same way for a hundred years. There was a lot of apprehension but the Lauras team had such a great way with people they won us over. People took to them. Lauras were great for our company and the systems they introduced are still in place.
