Case Study 8-04383
IET helped its client boost productivity by teaching fundamental industrial engineering tools and techniques to the client’s newly hired industrial engineers.
The metal stamping division of a domestic automotive OEM.
Relying on its industrial engineering expertise, IET created a four-day, customized training program that was delivered to the newly hired IE’s. All essential aspects of work measurement, operation and productivity analysis, methods design, and production system design were conveyed to the class participants through lecture, in-class demonstrations and field applications within the plants. Class sizes were small to ensure active participation and individualized feedback.
IET hosted three separate training sessions, each at a different plant, during which 15 industrial engineers received instruction. Each group was encouraged to discuss the opportunities to improve productivity in their plants and share ideas. The IET instructor shared relevant experiences throughout each session to enhance the classroom topics and materials.
Course evaluations indicated that all participants found value in attending the session.
