Mr Tan Swee Ban presented the following results:
For SIG, improvement is not difficult, sustainability is. Thus, this Kaizen model stretched through a duration of 6 weeks to provide each project team sufficient time to understand the problems, design solutions, pilot-run the solutions, calibrate and standardize the solutions for the long run. Therefore, the results that Mr Tan Swee Ban presented are not estimates, they are actual results achieved from implementations.
In their closing speeches, SIG Senior Management made the commitment to create a continuous improvement culture. And Neville Clarke is honoured to be engaged as the consultant to be involved in the SIG’s Lean journey.
