Facility-Wide Transformation to Lean:
A facility-wide transformation to lean was successfully implemented with a cross-functional team including the union leadership and other key stakeholders. Key elements of the success included linking process and unit assembly lines, implementing a visual Kanban to minimize waste of inventory and movement, implementation of visual shop-floor scheduling, linkage of molding machines to improve process changes and standardization of equipment, conveyors and tooling to allow flexible processing, Technical enhancements also were implemented with the addition of critical skills and process optimization systems to maximize throughput and improve quality.
