Lean Enterprise Estonia partner Nefab Packaging OÜ successfully passed the ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 certification in February. It means that Nefab Packaging OÜis the first company in Estonia which passed the certification using 2c8 as a tool for Process mapping. Because of that success the value of visual Process mapping solution is proved again.
Quality specialist Helen Hilkja is sharing her impressions: “Company started to prepare for certification in year 2016 by renewing existing managing system and making it more simple. In the past times ISO certification meant a big number of documentation work, but due to new standards, now it is needed to focus on Process itself and company has to prove, that all essential activities are done properly: by this amount of documentation work is minimized on a whole managing level. The main interest of Nefab Packaging OÜ was to minimize existing managing system and make it easier, so workers get more interested and involved while working”.
Significant impact on creating main and supporting processes, which are up to date and take into account possible risks and improvements, was on choosing the right tool for Process mapping: the best choice was 2c8 program. Thanks to this, in cooperation with workers from different departments the main processes were mapped, map of business processes was created and managing system handbook was put together. With the help of 2c8 we could implement a process focused approach making preparation for certification significantly easy with adding irrefutable value. Positive feedback was collected from workers, different clients and partners.
Of course our work is not finished yet. It is planned to map Manufacturing operations to make production more effective and also map Work security managing system to apply for OHSAS certificate. Processes need a special attention and have to be reviewed all the time, but with help of 2c8 it became as easy as it could be”.
