The Shingo Prize provides manufacturing companies with a model to achieve enterprise excellence.
Challenging for the Shingo Prize represents an opportunity to benchmark business performance against other world class organisations. By offering the opportunity for independent verification against global standards it provides a framework that businesses can measure their performance against and, importantly, identify opportunities for improvement.
Our involvement in the Shingo Prize has gathered pace in recent years as the number of companies seeking recognition or assessment against the global Shingo standard has increased. The Manufacturing Institute is not only the first partner of the Shingo Institute in Europe but has helped more organisations achieve recognition than any other Shingo affiliate, including the first two sites recognised in Europe, Ultraframe and BAE systems, and the first 3 full Shingo Prize Winners in Europe, Abbott Vascular, Depuy Synthes and Newsprinters Eurocentral.
The Shingo Model is fast becoming the business model of choice for manufacturers who want to truly embed enterprise excellence across their business.
