On October 28, Dmitry Pronin, Director of the Industrial Development Fund of the Tula Region, paid a working visit to the Malinovsky Reinforced Concrete Plant (MK ZHBI).
The enterprise was included in the national project “Labor Productivity” in September 2020. For the pilot project, the flow of manufacturing drainage trays was chosen, it provides up to 90% of the company’s profits. The specialists of the Regional Center of Competence conducted diagnostics of the flow and identified more than 30 problems at various stages of the production cycle.
Within the framework of the project, we introduced the basic tools of lean manufacturing, trained personnel, created standards for operators, systematized the warehouse and optimized the process of transporting finished products.
This allowed the company to increase production at its main production – the flow of drainage trays – by 35%. Thanks to the improvements, the time for the release of finished products has been reduced by almost 2 times and almost 40% of the inventory in the flow has been freed.
“The system of employee motivation has become more transparent – now everyone can check the correctness of payroll, because they independently record the result for the shift. And the chief technologist and the quality control department check the marriage. Fulfilled or exceeded the plan – earned more. We welcome and encourage suggestions from employees to optimize production “, – said Elena Stolyarova, Deputy General Director for Innovation and Informatization of MK RC.
She stressed that good results in increasing labor productivity were achieved thanks to the well-coordinated work of the entire team. 6 new projects are planned, including the production of small architectural forms, underground waste sites, the creation of metal and woodworking industries, etc. Now, increasing labor productivity is one of the priority goals of the reinforced concrete complex.
Dmitry Pronin noted that the Industrial Development Fund has been working on increasing productivity at the enterprises of the region for 4 years. 60 Tula companies are taking part in the national project, 40 of them have implemented one project, including 20 – two or more.
“We started the national project in the paradigm of improving the existing production, now we see the second task – to help the enterprise to master new production and types of products. And immediately build effective processes in them, based on previous projects “, – said Dmitry Pronin.
According to him, in the near future the Fund will introduce a new program to support regional producers, aimed at increasing labor productivity.
