Once the IAC Online Accreditation application questionnaire is submitted, facilities will then have 30 days to upload the required case study documentation as listed in the case study checklist on the Applications tab in the Online Accreditation account.
And IAC has developed plans for the manufacturing side, including some custom-engineered components, and has pre-identified and solved issues for the exacting AMO requirements in advance of the production and installation.
Implementation of Continuous Improvement Culture The original owners of Reynolds lacked a process in place that would allow ideas to be shared and flow easily from the bottom up. Manual order recording works in a situation where the company is not receiving orders on a consistent basis.
This was the cause to why the earlier management from Salinas left because they could not deal with the amount of transparency that the came into place with his changes. According to the results in Appendix — A, the Reynolds plant had 7.
Slung ten communication channels calculation, as shown in Appendix — B, we can see that the number of communication channels were reduced from 91 to 10, internally. Together they reviewed a number of potential workstation designs, finally deciding on the Dimension 4 Workstations from IAC Industries in Brea, California.
Assembly—The Final Push With the arrival at AMO of components for the workstations that would form the two cells on the planned date, the process was passed to Senior Optical Technician, Bill Finley, to oversee the final assembly.
They snap into any of the outlet positions on the D4 uprights to tap into the respective-numbered power circuit.
With this updated warehouse management, it allowed IAC to eliminate their Canadian and Texas warehouse, and use only the Reynolds plant with their new packing strategy.
Ultimately, the importance of workstation selection is protection from future circumstances obsolescing your investment.
Now problems are much easier to identify. Click image to enlarge The Consultant To provide guidance on the selection and set up of modular assembly workstations, Mr. Questions about space, physical requirements of the assembly product, operator motion, material transfer and how the ergonomics of the work flow are going to be handled must be asked and answered to achieve the most productive end.
As we analyses further and look at the steps taken to improve their processes in the warehouse, it shows a good example of continuous improvement. In the recommended solutions, Salinas reduced the number of employees from 14 to five, with the implementation of four logistic planners and one logistics manager, which lowered ten communication channels drastically.
This is very high quality equipment, and assembly was easy due to the excellent design and forethought that went into building it. The changes Salinas made, such as taking away walls in the office, increased the amount of transparency and simplified this concern.
The employee will need to have incentive to innovate, or else they will not have the motivation to do so. Finley notes that the Dimension 4 parts arrived from IAC grouped well, with boxes well marked, which simplified the organization for the assembly. Enhance Employee Benefit Improve employee benefit programs and properly reward employee based on performance and innovation.
Another one can be giving employee equity in stakes, so that hey can act like true entrepreneurs, which companies such as West and Disney have implemented and have seen great success. It begins with configurability. We observed the various symptoms that took place in the Reynolds plant, from which we were able to derive the major concern at hand, as we realized amongst all of these concerns, there was something much deeper as the root cause to all the symptoms identified.
In addition, the 13 carriers were reduced to one running through three routes. The D4 is a modular system allowing single- or double-sided workstations to be linked together in a variety of configurations: Everything from workstation size, storage, power, materials and even colors are reviewed and finely tuned.
The difference in operations can be demonstrated as shown in Appendix — C. Why not just pick equipment manufacturers and begin ordering?
With this change, it impacted the employees drastically with their daily roles and responsibilities.
The kicker is the way the PDS allows access to these three separate circuits. AMO chose to utilize two modified U-shaped cells to best accommodate their workflow. Additionally, the amount of suppliers Reynolds has in Europe is quite concerning.
The team of customer, consultant and manufacturer worked together solve snags and other critical details. One group was the buyers and the second was planners, each with their respective team lead. When cooking at the miscommunication between buyers and planner, the original composition probably worked well when the company was small.
The short answer is awareness of limitations in your own knowledge.Supply Chain Management at International Automative. Report abuse.
