HID Global Lauded for Lean Manufacturing Principles


HID Global has been recognized by the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) for its commitment to achieving excellence in manufacturing and productivity during its recent Lean Tour. At the company’s facility in Irvine, Calif., Lean Tour attendees were provided with hands-on opportunities to experience Lean principles in action.

Lean manufacturing is a comprehensive set of principles and practices that focus on continuous improvement of the manufacturing process. The goal is to eliminate wasteful use of resources.

AME conducts numerous benchmarking tours of organizations across the United States, focusing on Lean implementations. Its recent tour of Orange County and Riverside, Calif., brought attendees from more than 19 companies across the United States, including company leaders responsible for implementing Lean initiatives and executions. Attendees visited Southern California-based organizations that have successfully begun to implement Lean manufacturing.

HID Global, which implemented Lean principles several years ago, encourages its employees to suggest process improvements and drive efficiencies that will help to streamline operations and increase productivity.

“The Lean Tour was a great opportunity for our employees to speak with visitors from other organizations and share their experiences with the implementation of Lean principles,” says EricBailey, Lean Leader, HID Global. “Team members presented their Lean implementation experiences within their respective areas to the visiting group. In all, the tour was excellent way for us to focus on continuous improvement throughout our facility.”
