Cianbro: Lessons in Lean

Cianbro: Lessons in Lean

You've probably read about Cianbro's Lean principles, now find out how it works! On May 16, Cianbro engineers will describe their Lean ethos – a process of continuous improvement based on personal initiative, innovation, and creativity, and how the incremental improvements this produces are incorporated across their entire system, touching every aspect of the business, even the parts you don't see. Quoting CEO Andi Vigue, "We must change our individual behaviors and focus on having a culture of 'continuous improvement.' We must be willing to measure everything we do every hour, every minute, every second of every day. Then we need to adjust our process to yield incremental improvements to yield safer projects, higher productivity, better quality, and satisfied customers." In describing the results of one aspect of this, in practical what-it-means-to-you terms, Maine Biz notes: Cianbro manages costs with “lean building” principles, which involves pre-fabrication offsite, carefully choreographed movement of materials to a site and constant assessment over where a project is and what’s needed.
