This programme is a 2 day hands on practical Shingo workshop on the 4th & 5th December covering the Shingo principles of Enterprise Excellence at the Cummins Power Systems Plant at Davenport.

The workshop will be led by Dr Fiona Buttrey, and you will witness at first hand, how Shingo principles drive behaviour throughout the entire organisation to deliver world class results. This course is accredited and certified to both the Shingo Institute and CPD service (Continual Professional Development).

You will learn to align your organisational principles and core values with your systems. Group activities are used to help develop skills in assessing alignment and also how to address misalignment’s by embedding your principles into your work and management systems.

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Introduction to Shingo
  • Principle led Behaviours
  • Learning what it means in action
  • Checking out how to review in a real live environment
  • Identify how tools link to systems
  • See and assess behaviour to provide constructive-feedback
  • Explore what adjustments could be made to improve systems in driving ideal behaviour for world class results

The Daventry plant manufactures diesel and natural gas high-horsepower engines from 38L to 91L for a wide variety of equipment in the mining, rail, defense, oil and gas, and commercial marine applications.

More recently the plant has adapted to incorporate the assembly and testing of fully integrated Generator sets.

Manufacturing processes on site include: Cylinder block machining, Engine and Genset assembly, Subassembly, Paint and Final Test.

Organisations who have adopted the Shingo principles, have seen an increased level of success in areas such as Costs (increased revenue, reduced inventory, reduced lead times etc), Safety & Quality ( zero lost time for accidents, reduction in scrap, defects and non-conformance), On Time in Full & New Product Introduction (increases in OTIF by as much as 95%  & NPI up to 100%).
