Companies such as Rockwell Collins, Suez, Assa Abloy and Vaillant to name but a few, will be visiting Wales on March 16th with the Lean & Sustainable Consortium.  The group, consisting of around 20 members, will be visiting the Dwr Cymru plant of Cog Moors which is located in Dinas Powys and is adjacent to an area of Special Scientific Interest.  It also has 11 acres of conservation area.

Here they will be looking at the Lean Programme and Business overview, and examining Dwr Cymru’s current continuous improvement journey, and exploring the requirement for a sustainable CI journey in greater detail.

They will be introduced to the Dashboard and work done at Cog Moors highlighting the benefits and challenges to date, and work on the Lean Sustainability aspect, establishing what has worked and what hasn’t.

After this, a site tour will take place which will focus on lean sustainability, employee involvement, boards, ideas management, process flow and specific features for the industry. They will then travel to the Linea site and have a presentation on the Lean Competency System which will be presented by John Homewood. To find out more, visit the Lean Consortium page.

Below are some videos of the Consortium where members explain what benefits they get from being members.
