Continuous Improvement

Lean is focused on creating the most value for customers while minimizing waste and using fewer resources.

We started our Lean journey over a decade ago and are continuously working to make it an important part of our culture. As a certified training center for Lean, Simmons has trained thousands of employees and community members in Lean rules and principles.  We also developed a proprietary follow up to Lean called "B.E.S.T." (Better, Easier, Safer, Today).
