Lean Manufacturing Principles Form the Foundation of our Quality Culture
As an extension of each customer's manufacturing operations, MEC strives to provide the highest quality and level of responsiveness by minimizing waste and inefficiency. Lean manufacturing initiatives enhance responsiveness to customer order variation while minimizing the level of purchasing transactions. MEC's application of Lean Principles and Teaming for Optimized Supply Chain Efficiency was featured by Circuits Assembly magazine in the article "Eliminating Muda: One Company's Journey" and in our white paper Teaming for Optimized Supply Chain Efficiency .
MEC's Lean philosophy embraces cellular manufacturing techniques, single-piece flow, standardized work, pull systems and 6S (Sort, Straighten, Scrub, Standardize, Safety and Sustain) tools to drive continuous daily improvement. Patterned after the Toyota production system, MEC has trained every employee to be able to see "muda" (Japanese for "waste") and eliminate it in every process. MEC's goal is to continually reduce customer lead-time, the floor space required for production and drive excess inventory out of the system. The company employs a full-time Continuous Improvement Manager, who is a skilled Kaizen leader.
