Value through LEAN
At AH Industries, we follow LEAN principles in the entire value chain. Our prioritized priorities (Safety, Quality, Delivery & Cost) guide the work we do every day in pursuit of our goals.
The idea of our LEAN approach is to maximize customer value and minimize the waste of resources. LEAN is how we stay competitive and how we make our customers competitive, too.
Prepared for change
We work in a highly changeable business, and it is vital for us and for our customers that we are capable of adapting rapidly when needed.
Following LEAN principles enables us to alter routines and production methods within a very short time frame.
Short lead times
When we eliminate weak spots along our entire value chain, we create processes that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time. In this way we can get products and services through our processes much faster and we can respond quickly to changes in demand.
A culture of zero errors
A vital part of our LEAN program is to eliminate errors in our production altogether – to create a zero defect culture. We achieve this through standardized, failure proof and well-described standard processes.
Optimizing processes together
The only way we can accomplish these high standards in our value chain is to work closely with our customers and suppliers. Together we can identify potential improvements to all relevant processes, making processes faster, more economic and less prone to error.
