Lean Continuous Improvement Training
In order to further the Lean manufacturing skills of its workforce, InCord management chose Team Manager Alyssa Schmidt to attend CONNSTEP’s Continuous Improvement Champion Certification (CICC) training program. The CICC course provides comprehensive exposure to the principles and practices needed to develop and sustain a Lean Enterprise. Participants in the program receive immediate reinforcement of the classroom training by applying what they’ve learned to a real-life project within their organization. The in-house project selected by Schmidt as part of her CICC training involved improving the production process of a key product line to reduce lead time which would benefit InCord and increase customer satisfaction.
