Increase the performances of an industrial site

Context


A producer of air-conditioning devices wants to increase the industrial performance of one of its sites by capitalizing on the deployment of new industrial and management principles, on fundamental know-how (e.g. right the first) and by empowering
technical production facilitators.

 

Approach


Involve and rally teams through action by conducting 2 main projects:

  • Establishement of Groupes Autonomes de Progrès (GAP) = Improvement Autonomous Groups

  • 5S approach, from the prodcution to support services offices

Take benefit from these projects to initiate the "Everyone commited to Production" thought in order to improve the external and internal customers satisfaction

In this context, the GAP deployment follows a 4-step logic:

  • framing,

  • target definition,

  • implementation,

  • support on the field.

Results

  • Initialization of a GAP reference then deployment in 2 other units

  • Development of the production monitoring : communication, mobilization on operational results and their analysis, team meetings routines

  • Decrease in the WIP thanks to storing actions and deliveries optimizations

  • Delineation and identification of zones (production, storage,...) in the production and logistics workshops

  • Launching of 8 5S projects in the offices

  • Involvement of operators in the layout projects
