ACS Trains Lean
ACS has developed a quarterly lean training course starting in 2014. Bruce McLenithan, Vice President, first introduced lean manufacturing concepts to ACS when he was hired as General Manager in 2010. The goal of lean manufacturing is to fix work flow issues to create a smoother production process and eliminate waste in specific areas including time, production, quality, processing, and inventory.
"Nothing is ever perfect. Lean concepts realize this truth and are aimed at constantly getting better. Our goal is to train our employees to constantly think of better processes and ways to organize their workspaces to be more efficient and empower them to implement their ideas. We first started lean in the summer of 2011 by reducing waste in our inventory and workspaces, resulting in a more organized facility and manufacturing efficiency.” says Bruce McLenithan.
