At the end of November, S A Partners attended the European Shingo Conference which was held in Copenhagen. These events are often used to present winners of the prestigious Shingo Prize, and it was great to see Boston Scientific receive international recognition for Operation Excellence at the conference.
The Boston Scientific Cork facility manufactures products that address disease states in both the cardiac and peripheral vasculature and gastrointestinal and urinary tracts. The facility has increased productivity while reducing quality incidents and plant cycle times and has received more than 200 quality and value improvement awards since 2010.
At S A Partners, we have been fortunate to win the Research Prize on 2 occasions with ‘Staying Lean, Thriving not Just Surviving’ and ‘Creating a Lean and Green Business System’. As a Shingo Affiliate, we regularly run Shingo Discover Excellence workshops throughout the year.
