Bang Printing is continually at work to be more competitive in the marketplace. A great example of this is our Lean Manufacturing Initiative, which kicked off in September 2006. By tailoring the fundamental principles of Lean Manufacturing to the needs of Bang Printing, we expect to reduce waste, decrease production times, and increase quality, efficiency and safety. The Lean Manufacturing Initiative is a team project, shared by all departments at Bang Printing. Several projects are currently underway and we are already seeing positive results. Some of the most visible changes, have been a result of the "5-S" portion of Lean Manufacturing. Other projects will involve "Tools of Quality" and "Value Stream Mapping".
