Continuous improvement is part of what we do every day at NXP. It is used in our manufacturing and business operations to ensure we meet or exceed your expectations. From a large process re-engineering project to a manufacturing employee realizing their production tool is not running as it should, continuous improvement is everyone’s responsibility.

Continuous improvement means constantly adapting. We do this by:

  • Defining the objective
  • Obtaining data
  • Analyzing the data
  • Making decisions to implement changes
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of the changes
  • Evaluating the controls to ensure the gains are maintained

We use a high level process, Align - Mobilize - Accelerate – Govern (AMAG) to help organize and assess the importance of continuous improvement projects. This proven framework also drives those activities through to a successful completion.
