A special LEAN visit
Prairie South Facilities department played host to members of the Saskatchewan Government last week, as Deputy Minister Dan Florizone and Minster Don McMorris paid a visit to the Moose Jaw offices.
As one of only 11 school divisions to be selected for a LEAN project in 2012, Prairie South School Division was proud to show the Minister the progress made so far. The Facilities department has streamlined their preventative maintenance system, allowing for more cost efficient and timely repairs and upgrades to the Divisions 40 schools.
Facilities Manager Darren Baiton said the visit was an excellent way to show the positive effects of the LEAN process. "Although not without it's challenges" he says, "going through the LEAN process has allowed my team to be more proactive in delivering a better end product in a more organized and efficient manner to the end user." In this case, the end users are the teachers and students, and Prairie South is always striving to put students first.
Baiton is particularly proud of the way his team is utilizing technology to help span the geographical distance across Prairie South. "We use iPads and FaceTime in the field, allowing for more accurate assessments and data collection."
Prairie South thanks the Minister and his team for coming out to see LEAN in action!
