The Approach

LOTS has worked to increase safety awareness, connect vehicles, map process takt times, understand the drivers behind cycle times, analyze variation in production, digitize control tower operations, and to set up a new management system. The project, which will run over two years, is centered around continuous improvement work and implementing a lean production methodology at every level of VPR’s operation.
