Lean is a continuous process. Almost 5 years ago, Ludhiana-based three companies – Superfine Knitters,
Rider Exports and Knitwell – engaged Chandrajith Wickramasinghe (popularly known as CJ), a
Sri Lankan expat, to shore up their processes. On the other hand, there are still many companies in this hub, having turnover of more than
Rs. 80 crore and using advanced infrastructure, but they don’t want to implement lean just because of high cost of consultants.
The other few of them want to implement it using their years of experience on the shopfloor rather than by any outside expert.
