Four Design will bring streamlining and productivity into focus

Four Design has always had the customer in focus, but will now be even more focused and be even more productive. All this is going to happen by means of LEAN.

LEAN is right now being implemented with Four Design to help increase efficiency improvement, productivity and the competitive position. Four Design will create even more value for the customer, think in value streams, achieve a better flow, reduce turnaround time, and in general create continuous improvements, big and small.

Project 5’S

The first step is project 5’S. 5’S comprises sorting, system, shine, standardise and self-discipline.

The facilities in Gislev are being trimmed, and a major sorting is engineered. Subsequently, everything must have its own place, so that there will be no doubt, where the tools, machines, pallet truck etc. can be found. Tidying and sorting shall help create a better flow in production, so that employees should not spend unnecessary time searching.

As part of the process, Four Design also concentrates strongly on waist. Waist adds to increased costs and delivery time, and Four Design wants to put a stop to that. Major focus is now overproduction, storing, waiting time, transport, undesirable movements, undesirable processes, discarding and errors.

Implementation

The implementation of LEAN is taking place in cooperation with two consultants who are engaged until February 2015. The employees of Four Design support the project with a positive attitude, and the management has prioritized the employees from the start and has kept them informed through the entire process.

Four Design is very optimistic and looks forward to an exciting process.
