"Nevada Industry Excellence is a tremendous resource — especially for small companies that cannot afford a large technical staff. They saved us a huge amount of money. MAP’s Lean Manufacturing training was a catalyst for us. After attending the training we decided to make a commitment to this. Through Nevada Industry Excellence’s Lean Manufacturing principles Polymer was able to reduce its buildings from five to two, floor space was cut by more than 50 percent and profits more than tripled."

— Paul Gossi, Plant Manager Polymer Engineering Corporation’s

"I wanted to thank you again for allowing our team leaders to attend the course. Several of them came back energized about the concepts they had learned and we’ve started making changes to our flow lines as a result."

— Michael Meguiar, GE Transportation, Las Vegas Plant Leader

"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
