Success Story: Expediting a Manufacturer’s Goal to Double Revenue (CS267)

CS267 thumbnail image

 

 

A leading provider of cables and cable systems aimed to double in size in 5 years but faced problems with space, scalability, and information hoarding.

With little visibility into their supply chain, the company struggled to decide if they should relocate to gain space. A lack of people, planning, scheduling, and training had left manufacturing staff struggling to improve operations. Some machines were running at 80% of speed and too many were idle.

A disconnect between HR, leadership, and the manufacturing floor compromised safety, productivity, and the data needed for decision making and gap analysis.
