In the dynamic world of food manufacturing, operational excellence is the key to staying competitive and ensuring high-quality production. In this case study, we explore the transformative journey of an anonymous food manufacturing company that embarked on a remarkable operational shift. With a vision to revolutionize its operations, the company partnered with POWERS to implement a Management Operating System based on Line Centric Teams (LCT).
The company’s traditional organizational structure featured separate leads for different shifts, reporting to shift supervisors and operations managers. Recognizing the
need for a significant operational shift, the company sought the expertise of POWERS to implement a Management Operating System centered around Line
Centric Teams (LCT).
Each LCT would comprise an operational line lead, a maintenance lead, and a process lead, responsible for overseeing one or more production lines. This marked a profound departure from their conventional structure, promising numerous benefits for the company and POWERS delivered
POWERS began by conducting a thorough assessment of
the company’s current operations, identifying pain points
and areas for improvement. This involved observing
production lines, speaking with employees at all levels,
and analyzing data. From this assessment, POWERS
developed a tailored strategy for implementing the LCT
management operating system.
