See continuous improvement principles in action at Austal Australia. AME Best Practice Tours provide a unique opportunity for a select number of participants to experience, first-hand, operational excellence. On this tour attendees will see and learn about Austal Australia's Performance Improvement Program, a specific program aimed at their production activity.
Austal will open its doors of the Guardian Patrol Boat shipbuilding facilities and share the experiences they went through to set up the facility and implement the required process to successfully build a fleet of 21 vessels for the Australian Commonwealth. The Program includes 21 vessels and Austal has to launch one boat every three month over a period of 5 years. Main subjects of the presentation will be covered by the people-centric leadership approach they applied to get to the results they are aiming for.
Austal is the Australian shipbuilder, global defence prime contractor and maritime technology partner of choice, designing, constructing and sustaining the world’s most advanced commercial and defence vessels.
Australia’s largest defence exporter and only ASX-listed shipbuilder, Austal owns and operates industry-leading shipyards in Australia, the United States of America and The Philippines with service centres located worldwide including South East Asia and the Middle East.
Austal also has a joint venture partner in Aulong, formed with Jianglong Shipbuilding of Guangdong to pursue high speed passenger ferry opportunities in mainland China.
Leading the international market for large, aluminium high speed craft (HSC), the company also offers steel hull solutions for defence and commercial customers - and is currently delivering the 21 vessel Guardian Class Patrol Boat project for 12 Pacific Island nations.
Austal Australia’s employees are the most important asset in their pursuit for continuous improvement and customer satisfaction. The company promotes and maintains an environment where communication is open and employees work together to achieve optimum results for internal and external stakeholders.
Teir people are highly skilled with most having many years of practical experience working at Austal and in the shipbuilding industry.
Austal Australia prides itself on providing a safe and cohesive work environment at all times, under all conditions. An enviable safety record is achieved through a genuine focus on employee safety and continuous improvement - and a high degree of attention to personal accountability and responsibility, best-practice working environments and industry leading processes and procedures.
Working as united team, their people are the key reason Austal Australia – and the Austal Group - has become a world leader in the design and construction of customised defence vessels.
