RST Lean Academy – Standardized Process Bootcamp

RST Lean Academy – Standardized Process Bootcamp

As part of our internal Lean Program driven by our very own Lean Academy we are proud to announce that last week the first 7 colleagues starter their Standardized Process journey towards Lean level 4.

Led by coach Gerard Koekoek the 2 groups consisting of Karel Voogt, Marcel Vrekke, Jeroen Hooft, Richie Hodges, Niels van den Berg, Christiaan Pronk and Sander van der Graaff took a deep dive looking closely at 2 of our main processes being specific parts of our Transhipment and Import cargo flows.

During this Standardized Process Bootcamp the main focus was related to process speed and the elimination of waste in any form.

As can be seen in the picture,  the Bootcamp was a great success and both teams managed to eliminate over 200 hours of waste from the mentioned processes on yearly basis.

During the course of week 15 the next 6 colleagues coming from all the different RST departments will start their SP Bootcamp and continue the road towards Lean level 4.
