The unit team presented four best practices of improvements in manufacturing processes which were selected as among the 100 best Kaizen practices nationally by CII.

Kaizen, which in Japanese means ‘change for the better’, has come to be the industry standard globally for companies to drive continuous improvements in the manufacturing processes. Kaizen as a concept focuses on creative solutions to continually solve large numbers of small problems. The power of Kaizen is in the ongoing process of continually making small improvements that improve processes and reduce waste creating significant impact at scale.
