Project example - Initiation of continuous improvement efforts for synchronous tool making

The target of this project was the revision of the structure and process organization of a tool shop in the context of an intended synchronous production.

For this purpose following steps were performed:

  • Benchmarking of technological and organizational performance
  • Process analysis of order processing
  • Optimization of floor layouts
  • Establishment of a milestone process
  • Synchronisation of workflows
  • Adjustment of floor control
  • Implementation of tool making wikis
  • Support of the implementation and change management

The results of this project are competitive, synchronous processes for manufacture of new tools.
