CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT PROCESS (CIP)

The CIP scheme is an integral element of the corporate philosophy within the AMAG Group. The aim of CIP is to tap into the specific experiences and individual creativity of every single employee. All processes, particularly those which relate to product development, manufacturing and sales, are constantly assessed in the search for possible improvements in terms of quality, costs and time as well as the avoidance of waste. Of course, the human element is also assigned a high priority since improvements in relation to safety in the workplace and working conditions overall are also important aspects of the CIP process.

 

The CIP organisation within the AMAG Group is based on efficient teams. These are supported by functionaries and bodies such as the CIP Moderator, CIP Coordinator and CIP Steering Committee. Continually advising all employees about the work, experiences and results associated with CIP activities is a key requirement for the sustained success of the process. This is achieved by means of various communication channels and instruments such as notice boards, Intranet, regular newsletters and CIP events based on a standardised reporting format which facilitates concise and easy-to understand information about the CIP activities of the individual teams. All suggested improvements are collected and processed in a central database that can be accessed by all staff. Administrators ensure that the suggestions are evaluated systematically, process the suggestions, and handle the payment of bonuses.
