CHINA / Various Cities
This project discusses the need for and implementation of lean practices at BodyCote's heat treatment facility in Wuxi, China. After visits to the plant and discussion with several employees, the scope of the project was defined as to create an attractive and useful kanban and to use the steps of 5S to re-organize the jigs on the floor. Several options for both aspects of the project were presented, and the final recommendations reflect those that benefit the company the most.
