Lean Case Study: FastCap 2014
Returning to Bellingham, Washington, Ron travels to the beautiful Northwest to see a Gemba Academy friend and total lean thinker, Paul Akers, President and Founder of FastCap, LLC. From the morning meeting to the shipping of product at the end of the day, Paul gives Ron a free pass to look anywhere around the new facility and talk to anyone and everyone. Ron gets the full tour and meets new FastCap associates as well as catching up with familiar faces from his past visit.
Welcome Back to Fastcap
Ron drives us up to the new FastCap facility but then goes airborne. After a quick aerial view, Ron meets up with Paul Akers. Paul gives us an update on the new facility and how it was designed for flow, but watch out for the dogs. Also, did Ron find an opportunity for a 2 second improvement?
