"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

"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

In addition to ISO Quality standards, Nevada Industry Excellence works with companies in implementing the following company initiatives:

Statistical Process Control

Statistical process control (SPC) involves using statistical techniques to measure and analyze the variation in processes.  The intent of SPC is to monitor product quality and maintain processes to fixed targets.  Statistical quality control refers to using statistical techniques for measuring and improving the quality of processes and includes SPC in addition to other techniques, such as sampling plans, experimental design, variation reduction, process capability analysis, and process improvement plans.
 
SPC is used to monitor the consistency of processes used to manufacture a product as designed.  It aims to get and keep processes under control.  No matter how good or bad the design, SPC can ensure that the product is being manufactured as designed and intended.  Thus, SPC will not improve a poorly designed product's reliability, but can be used to maintain the consistency of how the product is made and, therefore, of the manufactured product itself and its as-designed reliability.

Total Quality Management

Total Quality Management (TQM) is a systematic approach to quality improvement that marries product and service specifications to customer performance. TQM then aims to produce these specifications with zero defects. This creates a virtuous cycle of continuous improvement that boosts production, customer satisfaction and profits.
