Description

The lean champion is responsible for promoting the integration of the new lean cell and reporting the details to the plant manager and the director of continuous improvement. He or she is responsible for managing and acquiring the physical resources within the budget for the lean system’s development or conversion. After a kaizen event, during new “lean” cell implementation, the supervisor will coordinate with the process engineer to intensely observe the cell for a period of no fewer than two weeks. The chapter describes 26 policies that are applicable to a molding cell specifically.
