From January 2016 Decsa started a new project for a continuous improvement, extremely motivating for the staff: The Lean Production implementation.
The journey began by involving the entire production staff, clarifying them two easy and determinants concepts: definition of the added value and identification of wastes, both vitals for the success of the project.
For this project is mandatory a deeply involvement of the production staff, "we do not need their manual labor only, we need their ideas to improve every single feature that leads to the transformation of our products.
Only those who are directly involved in production process, if properly motivated, it can propose how to perform any action with greater efficiency, eliminating or reducing waste, improving the total quality of our products.
The process of continuous improvement has begun, bringing excellent results since the beginning, allowing everyone involved to be more active and proactive.
The path will never have an end, all companies must continually evolve and change according to the demands of our only references: The Market & The Customer.
One of the greatest satisfaction, in addition to the results mentioned below, it’s to note the radical change "of the company culture".
The staff must have only one common goal, the improvement of each process, constantly wondering how to eliminate waste, having well in evidence that our client is satisfied to pay only when it can feel the "Added Value".
Decsa is a team, all of us are aware that we can give to our company much more than it has been given in the past.
