A company specialising in the manufacture and installation of noise control systems across the world, recognised a need to improve manufacturing productivity and become more agile in its ability to meet changing market requirements.
What We Did:
- worked with the client to establish and implement a manufacturing improvement plan covering 3 factory units
- introduced new automation, production planning and quality systems to support the improvement plan
- introduced improved management practices
- coached and mentored factory management and team leaders to be able to effectively implement the changes required
There have been vast improvements in planning, visibility, stock control, communication and product quality. In one factory over a 2-year period, production increased 15% with a 36% reduction in labour input.
