The Lean, Productivity & Continuous Improvement
Lean management systems and continuous improvement programs focused on adding value for the customer whilst simultaneously reducing waste are being increasingly adopted by UK's manufacturers and other types of businesses. Benefits include enhanced productivity, improved efficiency and streamlined processes, resulting in increased competitiveness.
Once the preserve of large manufacturing businesses, a lean and continuous improvement approach is now being taken by businesses of all sizes and across different sectors, including healthcare.
Indeed, the revolution in digital technology is helping to drive interest in lean and continuous improvement systems in a bid to ‘work smarter’, and those companies that fail to act may soon be at a serious competitive disadvantage.
However, while the implementation of a lean manufacturing philosophy and practices can transform an organisation and energise its workforce, for the improvement to be continuous requires a shift in management culture.
The Lean & Continuous Improvement Summit, which is co-located at the Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition, being held at the Arena MK, Milton Keynes on the 28th April 2024, will provide visitors with an insight into implementing a successful lean and continuous improvement program, tailored to their specific needs, in order to drive business development and efficiencies.
A comprehensive conference programme is being arranged featuring speakers from leading Scottish and multinational companies that are exemplary leaders in this field, who will offer practical advice and expertise. The Lean & Continuous Improvement Summit will also incorporate an exhibition of the latest solutions available to businesses.
