On the way to the standard

The electrical contacts sector is selected as a pilot one for the introduction of lean manufacturing system in the Department of Hard and Refractory Alloys Production.
Being based on the positive results of the project 5C execution in some fields of the Department of Alloy Powders Production, it was decided to expand the implementation not only of 5C system, but also of other lean manufacturing tools trial in the Department of Hard and Refractory Alloys Production.
The electrical contacts sector, the most difficult and one of the most important branches of the company, was chosen as a pilot sector of the department.
- Production in accordance with lean manufacturing standards is not a goal but only a means to produce goods which a customer requires, at the level of quality which a customer requires, in the amounts and at a rate which a customer requires, in the price range which suits a customer. - said Mikhail Nenyukov, CEO of JSC Polema. - That's why I want the problem sector of electrical contacts not just to reach a certain level in the implementation of lean manufacturing, but to become a standard in the enterprise by the end of 2014.
Lean manufacturing is an approach to the management of the organization aimed at improving the work quality by means of reducing losses. This approach covers all aspects of activities from design and manufacturing to sales.
