Training programme conducted

Staff Reporter

COIMBATORE: Elgi Equipment, the Coimbatore-based manufacturer of industrial and screw compressors, has launched an initiative called “Elgi Business System” based on Total Quality Management principles.

A release from the company said this was based on the Toyota Production System. A training programme was organised recently for 72 members of the senior management team and the programme was conducted by Noriaki Kano, a Total Quality Management guru.

These systems had helped the company improve the manufacturing flow through lean principles.

It had led to shortening of lead times, reduction in inventory and improvement in productivity.

The Elgi Manufacturing System was implemented in 10 of the 15 manufacturing lines of the company’s production facilities in Singanallur and Kurichi.
