IFC supports Victorian textile focused Lean Vocational Program

27
Nov '08
The Victorian fibre and textile industry has received an important grant by the International Fibre Centre (IFC) with the recent announcement of its investment in a successful LEAN learning program to be delivered by Melbourne based national Vocational Education and Training registered training provider, TexSkill, utilising the international expertise of the Institute for Lean Systems.

TexSkill is a not-for-profit learning and development organisation that began in 1991 and delivers an extensive suite of industry focused education and professional development programs to the textile and manufacturing sectors in all Australian states. TexSkill has formed a strategic partnership with the Institute for Lean Systems to enable world class delivery of this high level educational program.

IFC will invest a grant of over $100,000 to provide Victorian textile industry places in the TexSkill LEAN learning program :

- The Vocational Graduate Certificate in Competitive Enterprise is delivered over a six to nine month period and will provide executives, managers and supervisors an insightful understanding of the improvements and benefits to be attained by the adoption of LEAN manufacturing and production processes.

Commenting on the importance of the textiles industry adopting LEAN principles, IFC's CEO Mr. Joseph Merola said Victorian based manufacturers that embrace and apply processes that significantly improve their overall business performance will enhance their long term commercial viability nationally, and in overseas marketplaces.

The impact of LEAN manufacturing has redefined how businesses operate in the 21st century. Many organisations have come to realise that only a small percentage of their business operation actually generates the value paid for by the client. The rest is waste!
LEAN is a system that focuses on managing and improving processes, operational activities, suppliers and client relationships and the benefits include :

- Improved performance
- Better efficiency
- Higher productivity
- Cost reduction
- Increased throughput and
- Better service levels

Those businesses that use LEAN principles and practices create a precise customer value and produce better quality goods and services with fewer defects and less human effort, space, capital and time than traditional systems of production and manufacture.

“The TexSkill LEAN learning programs have been specifically designed and developed to align with the needs of Australian industry and participants that apply the LEAN principles in their respective businesses will benefit with production processes that are less wasteful and more efficient, profitable and responsive to client needs and demands,” said TexSkill's CEO Mrs Karen Abberfield.

Victorian textile manufacturers recognise the importance of LEAN manufacturing but unfortunately, many have very limited funding and resources to undertake the appropriate study programs.
