How do I know your projects are valuable?
We have executed and coached many projects. What benefit did they provide? Where can we help within the lifecycle of a project? Each section below contains a 2-minute video to expand on the case study topic provided.
New Equipment Set-up
The first step of any project is setting up equipment to produce your product. Do you understand it or do you “play” and hope for the best? Here is an example of understanding the equipment and getting the vendor to resolve our concerns. We were able to run a simple test with our design and materials to find a critical issue on a demonstration piece of equipment. Production start-up was smooth.
Weld process development
A challenging weld process was being created for a new contract. A first test indicated the “key” variables were not influencing things. This was a disappointing and shocking finding. Digging into the data, we found a critical hint. This cause was the missing ingredient to make the challenging process work consistently!
Field issue resolution with a design change
After years of dealing with a field issue, a project was executed to look at the design in greater detail. The undesired travel required to fix the poor product performance in the field ended after we identified a robust design solution! This became the new production setting and the first response to customer service calls. Long-term success for everyone involved with higher quality, no downtime and lower cost.
