Lean Six Sigma Bursts: E105: The Lean Journey at Rockwell Collins with Clay Jones – Part 2

This is part 2 of the 2006 speech given by Rockwell Collins CEO, Clay Jones. I worked at Rockwell Collins from 1999-2017, and was heavily involved in the Lean Electronics program.

In this clip, you'll hear him discuss how they created and rolled out Lean Electronics program across both manufacturing and the office, and selected Decorah (Iowa) as the pilot site. In the first few years (1998-2000), they achieved lots of successes (conducting over 600 kaizen events a year with reductions of 20-40%), but something was missing.

Enterprise Value Stream Mapping was added through an initiative called Core Process Optimization (CPO) to look at major pieces of the customer journey, from Sales and Marketing, Design and Development, Build (Manufacturing) and Sales and Support.
