This video provides an overview of the Colorado Association for Manufacturing and Technology's Kaizen Blitz program. A kaizen blitz is an intensive and focused approach to process improvement. Kaizen means "continuous improvement" and blitz means "lightning fast." This continuous improvement methodology combines lean manufacturing tools such as the 5-S's of workplace organization and standardization, cells, pull/kanban, set-up reduction, and line balancing. Each tool incorporates team empowerment, brainstorming and problem solving to rapidly make improvements to a specific product or portions of your processes.
