Teams involved in COMPETITIVENESS improvement
As a result of TUBACEX employees' involvement in continuous improvement, the ceremony closing the «Optimization of standard products» project which started last year, took place in September
The project was aimed at improving TUBACEX position in the standard product segment through the optimization of production processes and materials, leading to improved competitiveness. The results achieved greatly exceeded the targets defined in the initial phases.
A project management methodology was used whereby during the initial opportunity identification phase, brainstorming sessions were carried out involving professionals with by many years' experience. Furthermore, for each opportunity identified a sub-project was developed with its own team where actions aimed at making the most of the opportunity were carried out, allocating a budget and timing monitored fortnightly.
Long lasting improvements thanks to everyone involved
The progress of sub-project achievements was tracked monthly by the work team during the 18 months of work scheduled and until the final implementation of all actions identified.
The closing ceremony involved a brief presentation of the achievements attained delivered by team members. Afterwards, diplomas were awarded as well as small gifts to thank the team members for their effort and dedication.
