SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT ECONOMY COMMUNITY IT IS ABOUT ESTABLISHHING HARMONY BETWEEN THE ENVIRONMENT, THE ECONOMY, AND THE COMMUNITY
At GKN, we found out that it’s easier to design a system than making it sustain Sustaining any gain is a key challenge Initiatives usually leave with people Design processes based on systems instead of individuals. Individuals leave; but processes stay if they’re part of a robust system Backsliding to older ways of working happens fast HOW TO SUSTAIN THE GAIN?
GKN has embraced “lean” every step of the way We are committed to eliminate “wastes” from each of our activities But the key challenge is setting our priorities on various value streams in a lean organization Tools we are using are: Kaizen (Plan-Do-Check-Act) 5S/Visual Management Kamishibai (visual management tool) Business Process Initiative SUSTAINABILITY AND LEAN MANUFACTURING
