Kencoa Aerospace is committed to Continuous Improvement and Lean Manufacturing by ensuring that our processes are re-designed to minimize waste and drive efficiency. This focus on a long term lean journey ensures we can continue to exceed the expectations of our internal and external customers.
Our leadership team is instrumental in driving a lean culture and appetite for change in every area of our factories and in every function in our global organization. We have made a firm commitment to become innovators in lean manufacturing and business processes within our Aerospace and Defense core market. All activities are linked to providing customer value through improved levels of technical, quality and delivery service and responsiveness.
Notable achievements include waste reduction and improvements in order entry, engineering product development, machine shop manufacturing flow operations. During a five-day Kaizen event conducted at our facility, the team was able to transform the work flow, reduce cycle time by 98%, improve cycle count accuracy and yield numerous safety related enhancements. A strong measurement and accountability system has ensured that these improvements have endured long beyond the initial Kaizen blitz.
