The New England Lean Consortium will be holding its February Lean

Leaders Meeting at AstroNova in West Warwick, RI, on Friday, February 21st

Current members include companies from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

AstroNova Inc is a developer, manufacturer, and supplier of hardware and software systems that acquire, process, analyze, store and present data in a variety of useable forms. Their product applications are diverse, and so are their customers.

The plane you took on your last trip, whether it was a Boeing or an Airbus, was likely developed with the help of AstroNova data recorders. Hard copies of cockpit communications were likely printed by an AstroNova Ruggedized cockpit printer. AstroNova is the leader in these fields.

A Lean Consortium is a group of companies and organizations that get together to help each other on their Lean Continuous Improvement journey by sharing best practices and resources. Facilitated by a Lean CI professional, the Consortium brings together local companies and peers to share, learn and grow with each other on their Lean journey.

Who Should Attend?

• Those companies that have a Lean Program and would like to take their CI program to a new level.

• Those companies that would like to benchmark with other companies in New England.

A Lean Leaders Meeting is an opportunity to learn new approaches to improving a Continuous Improvement Program. Attendees at these meetings can always walk away with some new ideas or new tools that they can apply at their own place of work. The host company benefits from the Meeting through the Plus/Delta Feedback Session as many improving ideas are offered during the session. The main benefit of a Lean Consortium is the fresh pair of eyes that come to a member company, and see the obvious waste. Attendees ask the Why? questions. Why do you do that? Why do you do it that way?

The attendees at a Lean Leaders meeting are all Lean Practitioners, possessing great experience, expertise and skills in Lean. The attendees offer their suggestions for improvement based on what they see and what they hear. It is a great opportunity to have a team of leading Lean Practitioners tour your plant and provide positive, reinforcing feedback.
