The benefits of working with CMTC extended well beyond the scope of learning the skills of Lean and Six Sigma principles. The ETP development assistance and Lean training resulted in improvements to our on-time deliveries and our ability to be more responsive to customers. The training helped us develop a confident team that can be the force of change in the business.
CMTC also led a team of Trillium staff through the Lean Fundamentals Series Workshop from June-November 2020. The team updated a value stream process map; identified and communicated waste opportunities; used a data collection plan to understand operations, cycle times, and demand; and built a calculator to track how improvements could impact on-time delivery percentages. CMTC provided training and coaching throughout each step of the process.
