Management & Office - We have eliminated walls as barriers to communication in our open office, we have embraced "office muda" meetings and processes to identify and eliminate waste and we have leveraged technology to eliminate the need for paper
Inventory - We have standardized parts for all departments to reduce inventory by 80%. We have embraced cycle counting and tracking to ensure proper stock and levels.
Field - We always look to find the simplest method to meet customer expectation and regulation requirements, and regularly collaborate to pass along ideas.
Corrective Action - We learn from our mistakes and then teach others on to avoid them.
But Not Simpler - We get all permits and do not take shortcuts that would jeopardize the safety of the customer nor efficiency of the system.
Champions are champions not because they do the extaordinary, but because they do the ordinary better than anyone else (Chuck Noll, 4 time Super Bowl Coach for Steelers):
