As part of our commitment towards continuous improvement, we have been very keen on finding new and innovative ways to improve our business operations.
Recently, we started a new initiative, called “Lean @ DIN”. The program is aimed at embracing the best practices and methodologies of Lean.
Lean @ DIN
Lean is basically an organization redesign approach that is increasingly being used by companies across sectors and industries. At its core, Lean focuses on the elimination of waste or ‘Muda’ as it is called in Japanese. Muda is defined as an activity, which consumes resources without adding value to the end consumer of the process outcome. In essence, Lean provides an approach for organizations towards doing more for their customers with fewer resources, such as time, space and money. Lean contains five primary elements: Process Flow, Organization, Process Control, Metrics and Logistics.
The goal of this program is to increase the speed and capacity of operations by reducing lead times, and improve quality and efficiency through the use of Lean tools, such as value stream mapping, Kaizen blitz, standardized work, 5 S and visual controls.
We have a lucrative Quality Driven Incentive plan (QDI), which definitely adds on to our thrust for a high Quality output. It has remarkably improved the Quality orientation of our employees.
Bring The Change…!!
We strongly believe in employee empowerment and engagement. Many of our best decisions are driven by the thoughts brought onboard by our employees through the approach of“Bring The Change” which welcomes innovative ideas from all of our employees for Business and Organisational growth.
