Lean Philosophy


All Camozzi Group companies, despite operating in completely different sectors share an important feature where the management of processes and activities is based on the "Lean Philosophy” concept.

This philosophy applies to more than just the productive system.

Every activity and process across the company must have the same goal: to increase efficiency and reduce waste.

At Camozzi this is achieved primarily through the empowerment of staff at all levels. Each employee has the ability to monitor and stop the production cycle should a manufacturing defect occur in this way immediate corrective measures can be taken to restore the quality standards required. The warning is displayed in real time by the quality department on the centralized control system.

Another feature of the Camozzi management system is the implementation of “Just in time" techniques, whereby each process only produces  what is needed for the next process in the exact moment it is required (“what is needed, when is needed and in the amount needed"), resulting in a considerable reduction of intermediate buffers and storage.

The main production facility of the Camozzi Automation Division is organized in “work isles” which are  dedicated to producing individual products which have many possible variations, therefore providing greater flexibility and speed.  

For the companies involved in projects of greater complexity such as the machine tools made by Innse Berardi and Ingersoll or the cotton spinning machines manufactured by Marzoli, the individual contracts are managed and with the aid of specific software designed to optimize the activities from the components procurement, to the operations sequence management.

This type of management is only possible when all functions and departments are involved, including the automated warehouses, and internal mechanical departments which produce and maintain the tooling and other necessary equipment .
