Siemens VAI Metal Technologies is looking to reduce costs and increase throughput of the Roll Housing manufacturing process. After analyzing the current state of the production system, our team identified two areas to help achieve this objective. Existing inventory management policies were evaluated and strategies were proposed to reduce holding costs and delivery lead times. Secondly, a value stream map was created to pinpoint further areas of improvement.
