Case Studies: Our Solutions Work!
Quick-Action Improvement Case No. 401
How Implementing Lean Sigma doubled sales in two years by exposing capacity available from existing resources.
Situation: A Southern California manufacturer of complex machined parts was plagued with constant late deliveries because of fluctuating demand from its "make-to-order" customer base. Its processes were sluggish because of large batches of product being processed in lumps through each process step.
Problem: The Company was working three shifts, overtime and weekends to try to make their delivery commitments causing quality problems, uncontrolled cost increases and serious threats from their customers about dropping them as a supplier.
Solution: Dynamic Solutions facilitated implementing the Lean Sigma concept of pull production (single-piece flow) through training action-oriented employee teams how to identify and eliminate waste from each process step. The processes were standardsized to allow everyone to be cross-trained and perform tasks with a minimum of variation.
Results: The Company has reduced its average lead-time from 12 weeks to 4 days, reduced work-in-process inventory by more than 80%, increased productivity in excess of 830%, and eliminated 1.5 shifts and weekend work. These gains brought a 99.99% on-time delivery performance and a reduction in quality very close to the zero-defect level (measured in parts per million opportunities).
Here's what some of our clients are saying about our value-added solutions.
"Because we acted on the vision of the future Dynamic Solutions showed us we could have through implementing Lean Manufacturing as a basic business strategy we are now the ' 800 lb. gorilla ' in our markets. This allows us to choose business that fits our product family value streams and make more money with less effort."
