25 May 2011 00:00 in Medical Company Product News
Kimal has announced that it will be implementing Six Sigma process improvements in its management in order to enhance the quality of its services.
The management methodology, which was developed by Motorola in the 1980s, is being adopted by Kimal and 15 other companies as part of a seven-month programme funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
It will see the medical technology firm assessing data on customer needs and applying statistical analysis to drive improvements in areas such as product availability, reduction of handling activity and space management.
According to Mark Jenner, business unit leader for commercial and supply operations at Kimal, said this forms part of the company's continuous improvement commitments.
"We have adopted the Six Sigma methodology of problem identification and resolution to ensure any issues identified as an opportunity for improvement are addressed appropriately," he said.
Kimal was originally founded in 1964 and now operates from UK sites in Droitwich, Bromsgrove and Uxbridge.
