internal training

As any sound business, we are a continuously changing yard, able to give new and always different answers to the market solicitations.

The change which bring us to reach objectives also imposes the business growth, which can’t be only dimensional but must concern all the business system, including the training.

Since 2011 Meba joined the Lean Manufacturing club, production philosophy which the firm regularly applies.

lean manufacturing

Processes are configured by following the logic of Lean Manufacturing in order to reduce non-added value activities, optimizing flows, ensuring an accurate delivering system and reducing costs. Lean Manufacturing in Meba is based on the synergies achievable through the harmonious use of the various factors of production.

  1. Production system is integratedwith suppliers and customers.
  2. Machines are flexible to the product and become authentic production islands.
  3. Volumes are extremely variables in production, even with reduced economic expansions.
  4. Layout is organized by departments; however, within each department is not performed a single operation but a variable set of operations.
  5. workforce is required to co-manage production operating in functional teams which are assigned to specific responsibilities.

A lean manufacturing model obviously needs a lean training model. MEBA has activated and maintain an efficient system of continuing training in collaboration with the LIUC C. Cattaneo University of Castellanza.

Characteristics of this model provide a close cooperation between market (industrial environment) and institutions (schools, universities), extreme flexibility and responsiveness of the educational system to the changes emerging in the application. For these reasons Meba is a member of the LIUC LEAN Club from 2011.
