Continuous Improvement

Ansaldo NES are currently engaged in a CSIP (Continuous Sustainable Improvement Plan) through SC21 (Supply Chain 21st Century) process. SC21 provides an established format for our Business Improvement Plan, working with one of our major customers as a sponsor, Babcock; promoting business and manufacturing excellence and allowing Ansaldo NES to benefit from an established and proven process and format.

Whilst originating in the Aerospace and Defence industries, the principles of SC21 address business and manufacturing excellence and apply to businesses seeking to improve performance in all sectors including nuclear.

Ansaldo NES will use the CSIP programme as a vehicle for collating, co-ordinating, driving and measuring progress in all the improvement activities. The CSIP is structured in a multi-level, departmental format, increasing in detail as it moves through the levels that are reviewed at fortnightly meetings.

All areas of the business have had areas identified for improvement, broken down into clear phases, which are reviewed at fortnightly meetings.

In support of the Ansaldo NES CSIP a clear set of companywide values and vision supported by 12 clear strategic aims encompassing all areas of the business have been created.
