Ladies and Gentlemen:

In this update: 5Ss at the Spanaway Hanger: Ed away on the reservation and preparations  for upcoming test session.

With the one week of summer upon the Pacific Northwest, families across the Puget Sound area scrambled to put together their annual family reunions. Ed Shadle, along with cousins and NAE™ Team members Rob and Larry Martinson headed to Eastern Washington for their annual Shadle / Martinson Family reunion on the old reservation.

Meanwhile back in Spanaway a small team met to do some 5S's in the North American Eagle™ hanger.  Sorting, Sweeping, Simplifying, Standardizing and Self-Discipline are lean tools made popular by Taiichi Ohno for the Toyota Production System.  The same lean principles are in use today by major corporations and the North American Eagle™ team.

On this beautiful sunny day we want to thank NAE members Chris Greene, John Winchester, Omar Chramosta, Jon Higley and Keith Zanghi for this Saturday work session.
