VMEC does an excellent job supporting Vermont manufacturing companies. I have been pleased with all aspects of our relationship.
The scope of work VMEC presented and delivered involved training, facilitation, and coaching. This included a Lean 101 workshop, a value stream mapping (VSM) training and facilitated application of VSM with a structured problem solving overview. The Lean 101 workshop supports a manufacturer's continuous improvement initiative by giving management, supervisory, and operating personnel exposure to a common body of knowledge encompassing the fundamentals of lean manufacturing.
In the value stream mapping realm, VMEC delivered a family of products, and two linked Kaizen events identified by the VSM process. Structured problem solving focused on the concepts of applying a structured approach to problem solving by applying the "plan, do, check and act" (PDCA) cycle. The team learned a simple, teachable and consistent method to approaching problems.
