Shingo Silver Medallion

In 2008, we were one of 19 companies on the planet to receive the Shingo Silver Medallion Award. This was a big deal to us then and still is today—it means our lean-manufacturing efforts are exemplary, and because we’re always willing to share what we know with others, it also means people have taken note.

Sometimes referred to as the Nobel Prize of Manufacturing, the Shingo Silver Medallion recognizes companies that demonstrate operational excellence. This includes tools, techniques, systems and behaviors.

At Micron, we’ve been proponents of lean manufacturing for years. We don’t stop at our own operations, either. We speak at conferences and host tours of our own plant. We believe by sharing what we know and have learned, everyone is better off.
