Plano, TX (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
Pinnacle Strategies announced that one of its clients, a leading auto manufacturer, improved throughput by 27% as a result of Pinnacle Strategies’ throughput analysis and training to teach the client team to shift its focus from individual machines to the overall workflow system, and to apply new insights to communications, buffer management and metrics.
Pinnacle Strategies’ challenge was to help the client achieve targeted output levels. The manufacturer opened a state-of-the-art casting facility, and while the foundry maintained high marks for safety and quality, it failed to achieve its daily production target, threatening automobile output downstream.
Pinnacle Strategies created a solution that involved analyzing the system, identifying the constraint, and communicating shared goals everyone, from the production managers in the office to the operators on the line, could understand and aim for.
In the very first day of new policy implementations, the foundry ran its best day on record: a 99% goal achievement representing a 27% improvement over the average production rate for the year. Under Pinnacle Strategies’ guidance, the foundry moved toward simplified, more relevant metrics, improved communications of expectations and performance, and a systems awareness for sustainable improvement of workflow productivity.
