Imatra a forerunner in World Class Manufacturing Stora Enso must continuously improve its operational excellence to remain competitive. To support this process, a concept known as World Class Manufacturing will be deployed across the company division renewable packaging operations. The Imatra mill in Finland has been chosen by the Operations Excellence Team to be a forerunner and a pilot in this work.The concept utilises the best aspects of the Lean, TPM and Six Sigma methods. It is a structured way of addressing losses, and boosting the entire organisation's ability to implement improvements. A pilot project was started at the Tainionkoski Mill in Imatra in September 2013, and the lessons learned from this project will be utilised in the roll-out for the company's entire renewable packaging operations during 2014. In brief, World Class Manufacturing is based on cross-functional improvement teams where all of the employees involved work on improvements to increase efficiency, quality, safety and customer satisfaction.
