Continuous Improvement and Energy

At WVU Industrial Extension, we begin by conducting a thorough assessment of your current operations to gain insights into your existing processes. We also recognize the crucial role of energy efficiency in optimizing your operations. By understanding how things are currently managed, we can pinpoint areas where lean initiatives can make a significant impact. This analysis enables us to establish a baseline and define clear objectives to kickstart the improvement journey.

Throughout the implementation phase, we not only introduce lean methodologies but also provide comprehensive training to your team, ensuring they grasp the significance of these enhancements and their potential impact on your operations.

Our clients often encounter challenges such as identifying key performance indicators, grappling with high production costs, maintaining production quality, and managing excessive process variation. WVUIE tackles these issues head-on through a range of tailored solutions, including process assessment, value stream mapping, lean manufacturing introduction, KPI development, and time study/process evaluation.

Additionally, we offer expertise in plant layout review and development, maintenance systems support, failure mode effect and analysis (FMEA), and six sigma green belt training. With WVUIE by your side, you can optimize your operations, enhance productivity, and drive sustainable growth.
