Unformatted text preview: nly on improving "leading metrics" such as increasing employee engagement (as measured by the proportion of employees who took an electronic quiz on energy) and increasing the number of ideas submitted to the Lean Olympics, rather than on the magnitude of energy saved by those ideas. The focus on leading metrics was appropriate given the conditions at the time of the research, and the desire to begin by promoting the concept of "a million one dollar ideas" central to continuous improvement. Finally, it was observed that the processes which cells actually used to generate improvements did not utilize process management best practices, and that more disciplined approaches may result in better improvements[1). With the success of the first phase of the initiative, the Raytheon EET sought to leverage its momentum by continuing to develop methodologies to increase the energy efficiency of manufacturing processes at the IADC. Specifically, it sought to discover and spread practical and easily reproduced best practices, compatible with the existing lean manufacturing and process management programs, at the manufacturing cell level. 2.3 Chapter Summary...
