Bowden Blog: 2-Second Lean Struggle – “What Should I Improve Today?!?”

For this edition of the Bowden Blog, we’re dealing with the struggle of what to do with our Daily Improvement Time.

It’s mid-January and my daughter, Abby, is helping film and edit the videos.  It’s her first one and this one ended up a bit long…she’ll clearly have to work to get the “talent” (me!) to ramble a bit less…

Hopefully some of these ideas will help you keep your Team focused and engaged, as there is always plenty of opportunity to improve!

Thanks, Andy

Bowden Blog: 2-Second Lean – Changing Out Windows During Improvement Time

We’ve got a new Team in action for our 30-minute improvement time – Replacing machine windows.

This is a big example of what Paul Akers describes in his book, 2-Second Lean, of FIXING WHAT BUGS YOU!

It’s so much nicer and more effective to have clean windows….and it doesn’t cost that much to do it.

Check out Tony, Adam, Jeremy and Brent in action!

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.

In today’s video, Marvin continues to refine our method to keep the chips contained from ending up on the floor near the machine.
