UAB Juodeliai to launch LEAN management system implementation project

On 13 April 2019 the team of wood processing company UAB Juodeliai took an important step: they participated in a LEAN introductory training and initiated a two-year project for the implementation of the LEAN management system. The training was attended by 40 company employees of the senior and middle management and administration staff. Later stages of the project are expected to include a maximum number of production level employees.

The two-year project shall be implemented in stages. During each stage the employees shall be trained on different Lean methods and tools: 5S, Kaizen, PDCA, Standardized work, SMED, TPM, Kanban, Hoshin Kanri and other tools and methods to be introduced into the company’s daily activities. Since incidental application of these methods often bears no tangible results, they must be applied in a systemic and consistent manner.

During the project implementation UAB Juodeliai is to cooperate with the largest Lean-implementing company in Lithuania Lean.lt (Honsha partner). This company successfully aided such companies as UAB Girteka Logistics, UAB Vičiūnų Grupė, UAB Vilniaus duona and many others.

We believe that upon the completion of this project the company shall have an internal improvement culture based on reduced utilisation of resources, and elimination or reduction of processes that generate no value to the client or the company, which in turn will create greater value to the client and increase the company’s competitive advantage.
