- Vision: Snap-on wants to create an enduring manufacturing footprint in Murphy, NC with a world-class facility specializing in a broad range of power tools in relatively low individual volumes.
- Strategy: This 3-step process includes: benchmarking through training and learning from other world class operations; linking processes by broadly reorganizing to best optimize individual work cells, plant layout, and visuals; optimizing processes by going from a macro view to specific work cells.
- Engagement: Implement merit-based compensation, offer an associate suggestion and lean rotation program, hold Kaizen events and mini Kaizen programs.
- Execution: Post the plan, measure results, and take corrective action when goals are not met.
