As a company who constantly designs and develops new products for a diversity of markets, we are continually updating our facility to improve our manufacturing process. The end results are increased productivity and quality with decreases in defects and lead times.
The major achievements thus far:
1. We have a PC-driven work order management system which produces various production documents which have contributed to improving production floor scheduling, production reporting, inventory management and resource material planning (MRPII) techniques. The MRPII techniques optimize purchasing and allocation of raw materials, then optimize distribution of product throughout the facility during various phases of manufacturing.
2. Cellular Manufacturing has been implemented to reduce multiple material handling on the production floor. The entire production operation was analyzed by manufacturing engineering to group complementary machinery into specified work cells or lines for maximum productivity.
