"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

"With Nevada Industry Excellence’s assistance we were able to reduce our manufacturing costs by over 27%. Our customers have been very pleased to see our implementation of Lean, especially 5S, visual workplace and standardized work procedures."

— John Collier, Plant Manager, Herb Trade

"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
