The Anagni site specialises in the production of rotor blades in composite material for all of Leonardo's helicopters. The Leonardo Production System (LPS), established in 2019, has now become an indispensable management model for increasing safety at work, product quality and plant efficiency.
“On safety, on time and on cost”: according to Oreste Cafasso, Head of the Centre of Excellence for Blades & Composite Rotor Heads for the Anagni and Yeovil sites, these are the main objectives of the LPS programme, achieved through the reduction of waste present in the processes and the active involvement and accountability of collaborators, thereby increasing the safety standards and the environmental sustainability of the product. The introduction of a production performance management model has led to a critical rethinking of the way of working and finding solutions on a day-to-day basis, involving the entire organisation of the site.
The numbers of the change brought about by LPS are highlighted by Daniele Vincenzo Pagano, Head of Continuous Improvement, "In four years, and thanks to the active participation of about 70% of the organisation, 50 workspaces have been launched that have involved all areas of the plant and have generated over 400 projects and 260 improvement proposals."
