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.

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.

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