Continuous Improvement

Continuous Improvement


Throughout every process, whether it is to produce a service or manufactured product, there exists inefficiencies, or “wastes.” These include queue times; work in process, inspection, movement / transportation, excess production, defective products or services, and excess processing. Through the use of a specific thinking process and common-sense tools, an organization can systematically drive out waste by analyzing the organization’s processes, identifying wasteful practices and areas of improvement, correcting or revising the flow to streamline the process and finally, controlling the process. By using the tools and adopting a continuous improvement philosophy, the organization can achieve remarkable results. These tools may include one or more of the following:

  • Gap Assessment
  • Continuous Flow Manufacturing
  • Lean Management Cycle
  • Time Reduction
  • Process Mapping
  • Set up Reduction
  • Value Stream Analysis
  • Visual Factory Control
  • Five (5) S Program
  • Mistake Proofing
  • Total Productive Maintenance
  • Customer Pull Systems
  • Six Sigma Green Belt


  • Constraint Management

Relevance is a key component in NTA’s Lean Implementation programs. By tailoring each program to your specific business and the audiences you define, NTA makes the concepts of Lean real to each participant. Real-life scenarios from your business are incorporated into classroom teaching. The classroom principles are then put into practice in the workplace through carefully chosen improvement projects.

As an added bonus, many of our programs’ cost can be reimbursed up to 100% through training grants in Massachusetts and New Jersey.
