Video all about BWA Plant Tour Focus Groups

BWA Plant Tour Focus Groups focus on continuous improvement and the reduction and elimination of waste in our manufacturing processes.

Durham Furniture Challenges/Opportunities/Best Practices:
Labour allocation, flow, WIP reduction, employee engagement strategies, and recent ERP implementation. These are common themes for all wood product manufacturers. Please come prepared to contribute your ideas and learn about how to apply shared solutions to your own manufacturing environment!

Event Format: The host provides an overview of their business, best practices, and present the challenge or problem they are trying to solve. It is followed by a plant tour focused on the area in question.

The group then debriefs with a facilitated group discussion on how to solve the host's problem. Themes of Lean Manufacturing principles are referenced and benchmarked through the sharing session.

  • Durham Furniture has been making furniture since 1899 and employs about 200 craftspeople. Their furniture is made from sustainably harvested solid wood at their plant in Durham ON.
