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.
A Break Room Where You Can Eat Off the Floor
Maybe the dogs are the only ones using the floor to eat from, but the FastCap break area is a clean, lean eating canteen. Ron follows Paul around the break area to see all of the clever ways they have made life easier as well as efficient.
