Manufacturing Matters - Continuous Improvements by Tom Duffey

For: VPs, Directors, Managers of Operations, HR Directors & Managers

Many Continuous Improvement/ Lean Initiatives are cliche’ ridden, top-down programs that do not produce lasting commitment or sustained improvements. In contrast, Plastic Components, Inc. has embraced a unique and effective process that is driven by the energy and commitment of all members of the organization. With a bit of planning, any organization can take the basic premise behind this process, apply it to their organization and get the journey started.

Proven success

Plastic Components, Inc. is in the third year of a cumulative process that has achieved dramatic improvements in productivity, quality, profitability and employee performance. Tom Duffey, the company’s president, will share the essential elements that have made his program so successful. The foundation his success is placing the focus for change on each individual in the organization, and providing a process that helps internalize continuous improvement. In this system, individual goals are assessed and paired with organizational goals, making self-actualization a genuine, achievable goal for employees.

Employees view this initiative as an opportunity to improve their quality of life at work - and not as a threatening imperative driven from above. The program is "doable", and can begin to show positive incremental outcomes very quickly.

Tom Duffey (President, Plastic Components, Inc.) will walk-through the steps of the process, explain the very basic details behind the program, and talk about the benefits generated at all levels of organization.
