"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.

"Lean manufacturing is dramatically reducing the cycle time required to ship our products. The improved cycle times are directly linked to the top-notch customer service we are now able to provide, over 98 percent shipped on time."

— Gerald Jearman, Plant Manager Springs Window

 

Energy Services

 

Energy Audits

Nevada Industry Excellence (formerly MAP) conducts comprehensive industrial energy assessments for companies and industries throughout Nevada with resultant energy efficiency recommendations that generate huge savings for companies and our environment. Nevada Industry Excellence has funding partners such as NV Energy and the U. S. Dept. of Energy and these grants help defray some of the costs of these training and assessment activities.

FOCUS Program

Nevada Industry Excellence offers a 12-workshop energy efficiency training and certification series for commercial and public building engineers, operators and their crews. Since 2005, over 300 participants have achieved certification and have created energy-saving project proposals with aggregate savings exceeding 200 trillion BTUs. Nevada Industry Excellence provides specific operational and energy efficiency training on topics such as fans, pumps, motors, compressed air systems, chillers, lighting, etc.

DOE Best Practices Workshops

BestPractices, under the DOE Industrial Technologies Program, works with U.S. industry to implement energy management practices in industrial plants. To meet the diverse needs of U.S. industry, BestPractices provides a number of resources for corporate executives, plant managers, technical staff, and the general public. We invite you to join the many U.S. companies that are saving energy and money and improving productivity right now. Nevada Industry Excellence is proud to be a partner in the DOE ITP BestPractices and is offering targeted workshops in Nevada to help Nevada Industry better manage its energy needs and reduce overall costs and consumption.  

ISO 50001 Certification Assistance

ISO 50001 provides organizations with an internationally recognized framework for efficiently managing and improving their energy performance. The standard addresses the following:

  • Energy use and consumption
  • Measurement, documentation, and reporting of energy use and consumption
  • Design and procurement practices for energy-using equipment, systems, and processes
  • All variables affecting energy performance that can be monitored and influenced by the organization.

ISO 50001 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to continual improvement, which supports energy performance improvement over time based on the best data available to the organization. Continual improvement of energy performance requires a comprehensive energy management system involving a variety of stakeholders within an organization. The standard does not prescribe minimum performance criteria, energy reductions, or targets.
