Continuously Improving

PAE is committed to continuous improvement. We encourage our employees to do better for the client and themselves. We incentivize process improvement for employees by holding quarterly Kaizen Award competitions. “Kaizen” is a Japanese term for continuous improvement. Employees are invited to submit projects to vie for quarterly and year-end prizes. Our clients are the ultimate winner.


How to streamline work flow, organization and productivity in an aircraft maintenance facility

PAE personnel reworked a hangar space to implement Lean 6 Sigma principles and improve work flow.

The contract site manager cleared out the hangar, repainted and reorganized the entire space to apply clear, simple shadowboxes throughout the work area. Every tool, part and piece of equipment has a specific location for storage and work. The customer was so impressed with the improvements, they’re now implementing similar practices at two more locations. 

Visual management tools such as shadow boxes clearly map where equipment is stored.


With a legacy of exceptional contract performance ratings in aviation, capacity-building and stabilization, critical infrastructure, expeditionary logistics, identity and information management solutions, integrated security solutions, test and training ranges, training solutions and more, our seven business teams deliver our portfolio of services.
