Operational Excellence

Chanelle Group is an innovative and future-driven company, and we understand that continued growth needs to be managed in order to ensure the quality and integrity of our products and services. Our business processes need to be as optimized and as efficient as possible. To accommodate these requirements Chanelle Group has launched a Lean program, aligned with Enterprise Ireland’s Lean Transform approach. It has been given the name ‘Turoe’, an acronym for “Together United Reaching for Operational Excellence”. The name signified our united on-going journey towards operational excellence.Turoe Stone is an Irish ancient monument that has withstood the elements of time for over two thousand years.

The program consists of five key pillars:

· Lean
· Six Sigma
· Risk Management
· Design for excellence
· The learning organisation

All our employees are engaged in a learning program, with many completing the yellow belt training and some completing green belt training. Once established, we focused our improvement activities in most key areas of the business:

· Production
· Quality
· Regulatory
· Engineering
· Planning
· Sales

Progress was quick, and new tools were utilized to make an impact. The introduction of Kaizen created short focused projects and 5S to eliminate clutter and organize the workspace. Support from the top right down to every member of the team ensured its success. The impact has been increased speed, efficiency, work practices, and ultimately improved the bottom line with savings gained throughout the company.
