"Once the ideas were brought to the attention of the employees, it happened very quickly. They removed obsolete parts and equipment and made space for their redesigned flow lines. Employees redesigned the assembly process into a cellular flow system for one product line. The Flow Line pilot test conducted on the first product line showed a 64 percent reduction in manufacturing time, a 49 percent decrease in work in process (WIP), and a 33 percent decrease in product travel distance. Most of the decrease in WIP was focused around the product inspection/test area that was formerly the bottleneck."

— Betty Anderson, Operations Facility Manager ABB’s Carson

"Nevada Industry Excellence was the pinnacle to our success. We had an aggressive timeline and started without a single procedure in place. Without Nevada Industry Excellence and Prism eSolution’s assistance, we would still be in the infancy stage of the project. This certification has helped our marketing of TST. As we developed the procedures, we streamlined and improved our processes. The results: better yields, more productivity, and processes under control."

— Sean Alarcon, Engineering Manager, Tsuda SurfaceTechnologies, Inc.

"The initial Value Stream Map was the right starting place because it now gives a direction with concepts and goals that must be considered prior to any reorganization. Nevada Industry Excellence’s assistance has been just right in identifying new ways to look at a facility that I see everyday."

— Don Graham, General Manager Jensen Precast
