Quality and Yield Improvement
  • A high-volume candle maker was experiencing high scrap, rework, and yield loss. We defined more than 60 control points and variables for improving their process and product.
  • A high-volume metal parts plant was put on probation by its largest customer. Within 30 days, we completed a root cause analysis, prioritized over 60 sources of quality problems, and defined 100 mistake-proofing measures. Result: problem solved and our client removed from probation.
  • A manufacturer of food service equipment wanted to reduce its scrap rate on an expensive and critical component. We helped to redesign the process and reorganize the work in a manufacturing cell. Result: scrap reduced by 95%.
