Lean Thinking approcch of Rosscolor

LEAN MANUFACTURING

Our operating approach is based on Lean Thinking. This is a new way of thinking about the whole company, focused on minimizing waste and creating excellent, rapid, standardized processes at a lower cost. Therefore, all the raw materials, from paints to granules to consumable materials, are managed using the Kanban method, to render the entire working process more efficient. .

The central position of the customer is the basis for the lean thinking philosophy: research and reduction of waste through assigning responsibilities to all human resources involved to create added value in a continuous improvement process, aimed at total customer satisfaction.

just in time

JUST IN TIME

Another important applied lean methodology is called "Just in Time". This corporate philosophy requires producing only what has been sold or what is expected to be sold over the short term. It is a management policy applied to stock that optimizes all productive phases to lighten raw materials and semi-processed materials necessary for production kept in stock.

This reduces costs for storage, management, loading and unloading the warehouse, and therefore production in general.
