Continuous improvement

ADN-Aciturri Development Network-is the continuous improvement program that we use at Aciturri to achieve our strategic goals and to go forward in the pursuit of operational excellence.

This program is based on the following pillars:

  • The organization of corporate level information for defining business goals.
  • The development of these business goals into concrete action plans for each business area and team.
  • The detailed monitoring of these action plans based on their strategic importance.
  • The use of the Aciturri Lean Management Model as a main element for the systematic deployment of improvement projects.

The Aciturri Lean Management Model is an internally developed customization based on the model developed in the U.S. in the 1980's from the Toyota production philosophy and that during the  1990's was adopted by Boeing and Airbus, which is based on the standardization and the systematic removal of non-value activities.
