The Lean Learning Center, Novi, MI, a provider of lean curriculum and consulting, has been contracted by Automatic Feed Co, Napoleon, OH, manufacturer of coil-handling and press-feed automation systems, to assist in Automatic Feed’s commitment to developing an enterprise-wide lean operation. Automatic Feed calls its lean transformation the SMART (Standardization & Modularization Action Resource Team) Initiative. Its lean team has attended the Lean Kaizen Boot Camp program offered by the Lean Learning Center. Lean-team leaders are reorganizing processes, standardizing procedures and cross-training personnel to fundamentally change the they do business. In one case, a control process has been improved so that system wiring content was reduced by 66 percent. Automatic Feed is online at www.automaticfeed.com.
