Case Study 3-08749
IET created an adjusted manufacturing plan and process that drove the OEE of capital intensive production up by nearly 40% to reduce costs and ensure on-time delivery of critical automotive components.
A international supplier of custom welded components to the automotive industry
The customer required flexible automated welding and assembly equipment to meet the varied production demands of their customers. Frequent change-overs reduced overall OEE on a 24-7 basis to less than 50% on a weekly average.
The IET team members needed to clearly measure, redesign and improve performance to drive daily performance to a consistent and reliable level. Improvements needed to be made in the short-term to ensure a cost competitive process and customer demands were met.
