STD has made investments in the business to support company-wide Continuous Improvement activities.

STD MED has shown its dedication to continuous improvement through company-wide formal training in Lean Manufacturing with over 80 employees participating and additional sessions planned. More than just class-time, each training event focuses on a current STD process that can be improved through the reduction of non value-adding activities. Training events include:
- Introduction to Lean Manufacturing (an all-day class for employees from every department)
- Design of Work cells for Continuous Flow
- Set-up/Changeover Reduction
Increasing the Lean knowledge base of our employees eliminates waste from our processes and creates the opportunity for STD to pass this value along to our customers in the form of increased quality, reduced lead-times and decreased prices.
