"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

"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’s help was invaluable. They contacted us initially regarding the training program and then led us through the grant process. It was a great cooperative effort that ultimately resulted in approval of our application by the Nevada Commission on Economic Development."

— John Mansanti, Mine General Manager
