Fitzpatrick Mfg. management teams regularly utilize a management tool known as Gemba walks or waste walks. This tool leads to many of the dozens of miniature kaizen and lean improvement projects we take on throughout the year. Due to some recent changes in our business, we have identified a system that has been an asset to our growth of the past few years. However, our business has changed rapidly in the past 6 months, and this system has been determined to be ineffective. As a result, we are taking on a major kaizen activity to reinvent two of our internal systems. While both of these system are independent, they are interwoven and together ensure our continues success.
