Lean at PACCAR
Lean success at PACCAR, from their quarterly announcement:
“Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing Add Savings and Increase Capacity
“PACCAR’s application of Six Sigma tools together with Lean Manufacturing techniques have realized cumulative benefits of $1.5 billion since 1998,” commented Helene Mawyer, PACCAR vice president. “Six Sigma and Lean projects are ongoing at all PACCAR facilities, effectively increasing capacity and generating efficiency gains.””
It’s always great to see companies crediting Lean and Six Sigma (OK, they said “Six Sigma and Lean).
