Greenbelt Calgary Cycle Time Reduction

Today was day 4 of Module 2 for our Greenbelt Calgary Operations Program. We have 18 enthusiastic participants being coached by Bob Low who are working towards becoming Lean Greenbelt certified. The class is expected to graduate on November 4th once they have completed Module 3. Today, the group visited the hosting company, Excell Battery.

Our participants are shown below busy working on their Cycle Time Reduction Kaizen at Excell Battery located in Calgary. A lean Cycle Time Reduction Methodology includes six significant steps:

1.) Preparation
2.) Mapping out the Process
3.) Splitting sequential from parallel
4.) Eliminating waste to reduce business waste
5.) Calculating the number of steps involved
6.) Finally, having a balance of each step
