Ocean Kinetics operative James Sinclair recently underwent and completed the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service lean learning academy which was sponsored through Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
The course consisted of attending a number of day long workshops as well as site visits to BAE Systems shipyards at Scotstoun and Govan in Glasgow.
Each attendee created a project on ways of applying the principles of lean manufacturing to certain production processes in their own companies.
James chose to do two projects, one on streamlining the order process for large scale projects and another on improving material certificate collation and retrieval for the final billing of projects.
James will utilise his new skills and insight to continue and improve the smooth operation of our custom built workshop and stores.
