Savannah River Site hosts regional Lean Alliance event
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 - 10:00am
Companies from around the Central Savannah River Area had the opportunity to learn from the Savannah River Site’s continuous improvement success stories when SRS management and operations contractor Savannah River Nuclear Solutions hosted the regional Lean Alliance event. The Lean Alliance is a membership-based group of area companies that share best practices in continuous improvement.
One of the success stories presented was an initiative by the Savannah River Tritium Enterprise to right-size and organize its chemical inventory – an effort that reduced the number of chemicals by 95%, which in turn significantly reduced the amount of time involved in the annual chemical inventory for a cost savings of $18,282. Other presentations covered SRNS’ award-winning employee suggestion program, called IDEAS, and several other continuous improvement initiatives.
