A manufacturing company needed help in producing four different products in three different customer locations. MetaExpert Carlos was brought on to assist the struggling team in eliminating expeditions to their customers. The company’s overall changeover time needed improvement with on-time delivery services.
Through an in-depth analysis process, MetaExpert Carlos removed all Muda through motion and time studies. Carlos introduced the method of line balancing and proper sequencing to improve the overall system. A robust SMED procedure was created in which standard procedures were followed, communicated, and prepared. He helped rewrite the SOP, and all affected employees were professionally trained.
By improving the overall changeover time, MetaExpert Carlos was able to help reduce truck expedites to zero and improved change over time by 51%. With the introduction of the proper tools, the safety of the overall manufacturing process was improved.
