DPF Ltd wanted to implement a Visual Factory and build capability in its people to identify waste and improve processes, and to focus on production OEE2 improvement. Their challenges included a very busy production environment coupled with a small workforce. This created backlogs and difficulties in meeting targets and improvement work.
The project was funded by Enterprise Ireland through a Lean Plus programme. The company had already completed a Lean Start which created a solid foundation from which to work. The enterprise Ireland funding covered 50% of the external consultant’s costs and also 50% of the cost of their Lean Champions for time spent by them promoting lean throughout the organisation.
