Congratulations to DENSO Mexico for earning top honors as the number one Excellent Factory (EF) in North America! We’re sharing perspectives from DENSO Mexico’s ICT plant throughout the month to learn more about DNMX’s journey to excellence.
This week: Enrique Treviño, Senior Vice President, on the human side of EF
“EF is an overall activity of the plants. It comprises various subsystems. We can think of it like a gear assembly. Seeing it function, it looks simple; making it work is the real challenge. This has been worked on for years. For C&C, taking part in the competition is not new; it has been a contender before. The results that we saw this year is the accumulated work of years of structured progress and teamwork.
The most important thing is to have the necessary knowledge of the tools that are used in order to have an efficient plant, and for personnel to understand them so that they can prevent and solve problems effectively.
One important part of having received this award was the full involvement of our personnel. Doing Kaizen with the participation of all — that is the human side of EF.
EF Developers have the task of developing knowledge of this technique so that everything will work based on the guidelines required to be an efficient plant; that differentiated us from North America. I am very proud of all the people involved, because we have shown once more that DENSO Mexico has the capacity to go very far. Congratulations!
