CMTC’s approach was to design a project that would provide training and facilitation of improvements. It was critical that key GWE employees be introduced to and trained on the concepts and tools of Lean Manufacturing so that they would embrace change, drive the internal changes needed, and sustain and improve upon the changes. The project objectives were to improve space utilization to support growth within the existing facility; eliminate storage on the top racks to avoid an estimated $50,000 investment in a high rack sprinkler system required by the Fire Department; and improve overall productivity through more efficient product flow, less clutter and a more effective die storage area.

DaMar Plastics

CMTC worked with DaMar Plastics, between 2015 and 2018, in a number of areas and on several projects, beginning with assistance in developing a strategic roadmap to detail a prescriptive path forward. The method used was Hoshin Kanri, a 7-step process used in strategic planning in which strategic goals are communicated throughout the company and then put into action. Hoshin Kanri is a top-down approach, with the goals being mandated by management and the implementation being performed by employees. As a result, systems needed to be in place to ensure that objectives from senior management were effectively communicated throughout the organization.

 

CMTC also assisted DaMar Plastics in leveraging a series of no-cost electrical infrastructure upgrades offered by local utility providers, ...
