At BP Logistics we train our staff with techniques that help them to perform better at work.
A training on kaizen and productivity was held in March. At the end of the training, each staff member was evaluated.
Learn a little more about the topics covered in the training.
What is Kaizen?
- Kai- Over.
- Zen – Good for others.
- Kaizen = Reflective acts of continuous improvement.
The improvement can be divided into:
- Kaizen (Continuous Improvement): Means small improvements made as a result of progressive efforts.
- Innovation: It implies a drastic improvement as a result of a large investment in new resources (technology, equipment, manpower, etc.).
- Reducing costs through the elimination of waste at process levels.
- Continuous, gradual and orderly improvement.
- Generate ideas and concepts and test them. If they don’t work, try something additional or different.
- Make changes with significant results and at low cost, usually in less than 5 days.
- Relationship between the quantity of products obtained by a productive system and the resources used to obtain such production.
- Relationship between the results and the time taken to obtain them: the shorter the time it takes to obtain the desired result, the more productive the system becomes.
- In reality, productivity should be defined as the efficiency indicator that relates the amount of resources used to the amount of production obtained.
