Continuous Improvement

As a leader in aerospace manufacturing and engineering, CHI was an early adopter of Lean Principles and has continually applied these principles since the late 1990’s. CHI’s continuous improvement plan includes all aspects of the business with the goal of achieving world-class status in the field of aerospace manufacturing. We utilize Value Stream Mapping, Kaizen events, SPC tracking, integrated product teams, and Six Sigma tools to improve every aspect of our business with performance metrics are measured continuously.

CHI maintains a full-time Lean department that coordinates Lean initiatives and events, using a Goal Deployment Process (GDP) to establish and monitor our short- and long-term objectives.
