PROJECTS

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 a facility transformation linking molding machines and unit assembly lines, a visual Kanban process for shop-floor scheduling, and standardization of equipment, conveyors and tooling to allow flexible processing and quick changeovers.  Technical enhancements were implemented with the addition of critical skills and process optimization systems to maximize throughput and improve quality.  

Let us conduct transformations to lean to reduce costs and improve capacity and efficiency in your operations.

Financial turnaround and transformation of a manufacturing company was successfully achieved.  Engagement of employees on the floor and cross-functionally took place to implement systems and process improvements.  Structured planning and shop floor scheduling generated improved order flow.  Bottlenecks were identified, fed, and resolved with engagement of the plant teams with shop floor targets determined from a financial achievement plan.  Formal technical problem solving resolved chronic catastrophic downtime and quality issues.  Record levels for revenues and productivity were achieved that led to financial turnaround.  

We look forward to providing these services and benefits to your company.

Business Turnaround:

System of Statistical Control over Materials and Processes:

Statistical process controls over materials and processes in metal forming, metal working, and material processing operations were put into place.  Clear standards for raw material used in production were established with an SPC system of preventative control.  A 42% reduction in defective product, 35% reduction in repairs, and 64% improvement in product quality was achieved.  Let us work with your team to put the systems in place at your business to improve quality, throughput, and profitability.

Material Cost Reduction (MCR):

Establish a critical competitive advantage for your business working with us to create strong cross-functional Material Cost Reduction (MCR) systems to optimize efficiency, improve quality, and lower total costs.  Our successes in this area have achieved annual cost reductions of more than 10% corporate-wide.

 We look forward to working with you and your teams to put MCR processes in place.
