Event description

Description

Pella Corporation, a family owned manufacturer of windows and doors, began its lean journey in January of 1993 and is still challenging itself to do better every day.

During your day at Pella Corporation you can expect:

- A review of Pella’s Lean journey

- A tour focusing on:

  • How Pella is leveraging lean and Agile principles in IT and Product Management.
  • How Pella is leveraging technology in a lean environment.
  • How Pella uses MDI and Kata processes in support of daily improvement.
  • How Pella applies the DMAIC process to solve problems.

- A project gallery consisting of examples of lean projects implemented across the organization.

- A presentation and group activity illustrating what Pella has learned about how to improve overall business speed and agility through its lean product development efforts. Pella found that the lean accelerators the team applied to accelerating the product development process could easily be applied to many areas of an organization.

- An opportunity to participate in a lean roundtable discussion facilitated by Pella CI team members on one of the following topics: MDI, Standard Work, 5S, Handling Variation, Problem Solving, Kaizen Events, Sustainment, Kata, Agile and Lean Product Development.
