Case Studies

Space constraints, big equipment prompts expansion

A specialty alloys company needed to expand capacity to meet growing demand. Money was allocated for investment in its manufacturing processes. Growth and evolution in the manufacturing operations made the current layout obsolete and not optimized for material flow of any of its products. After some changes, a new layout eliminates disruptions to flow, which resulted in fewer defects and reduced lead times.

Activities in this case study include:

  • Project Charter
  • Pareto Analysis
  • Capacity Analysis
  • Material Movement Analysis
  • Workload Balance
  • Current State Flow of Products and Materials
  • Manufacturing Cells Layout
  • Future State
  • Relocation Plan for Equipment
