Bowden Blog: 2 Second Lean – Clamp Cell Chip Chutes Continued

Once again, we’re continuing on our 2-Second Lean journey with our Daily Morning Improvement Time each day and creating videos to show our improvements.

We’ve taken the next steps in our Machining Cell where we’re running Clamps, as we look to transform the Cell through our daily actions.

Our 2-Second Lean journey continues on a daily basis.

Based on the book, 2-Second Lean by Paul Akers, we are doing our morning improvement time each day and looking to report our progress.

We’ve still got work to do, but we’re seeing signs of progress and we know that if we continue relentlessly, we’ll improve dramatically over time!

It was a warm Saturday afternoon when the Team at Bowden gathered with their families to celebrate the career of Sandi Pandy.

For over 33 years, Sandi’s enthusiasm has been a hallmark of Bowden’s world as Sandi worked tirelessly doing so many different tasks:  Payroll, HR, purchasing, accounting, party planning, answering the phone, inventory, budgeting…..the list could go on and on.

Sandi has been such an important part of all that we do and we wish her well as she plans to spend much more time with her family in the months and years ahead.  Thanks very much, Sandi, for all that you’ve added into our lives!
