AGI Yargus hosts 2019 AGI Lean Consortium

The 2019 AGI Lean Consortium was held at AGI Fertilizer Systems on March 17-18 in Marshall, Illinois at the AGI Yargus plant.

AGI is dedicated to advancing lean in all divisions of the company. Attendees from AGI Divisions - Airlanco, Tramco US, Union Iron, VIS, Mitchell Mills - Joplin, Mitchell Mills - Newton, Sentinel, CMC Industrial Electric, Junge Control, Yargus and AGI Corporate were represented for the two day event.

During the consortium, attendees shared best practices from their divisions including 5s, Kanban, culture change, continuous improvement, process development and value stream mapping. This provided a great opportunity to share and learn from each other and to further continuous improvement journeys as a group.

What is a "Lean Consortium?"
A lean consortium is a small group of companies that work together to learn lean principles and methods, and then apply them to processes in each other’s companies over the course of the year.
