Abstract
Based on the analysis of the internal environment of the passenger company, factors that hinder the involvement of staff in the process of introducing lean production are highlighted. To neutralize these factors, "Kaizen implementation teams" have been created in accordance with the developed scheme for selecting employees into teams. Formation of kaizen teams requires a new structure to ensure the competence of company employees. For this purpose, three levels of personnel training have been developed depending on the target group. The kaizen-proposal system is one of the key points in the implementation of the kaizen technology in practice when introducing lean manufacturing. Kaizen-proposals are classified by categories and by the presence of economic effect. Responsibility for organizing work with kaizen ideas of employees and conducting kaizen blitz in a single unit is distributed. Criteria for evaluating the effectiveness at different stages of organizing work with kaizen-proposals have been developed. It is shown that the kaizen proposal supply system is aimed at involving staff in the ongoing improvement process.
