Abstract

This project, sponsored by Electron Fusion Devices, seeks to provide the groundwork and recommendations for reducing costs resulted from wastes produced within the Injection Molding Department. Extensive background research on both Lean and Six Sigma ideals was first conducted. An analysis of their current scrap tracking tools and processes led to a focus on overall scrap reduction and made a pilot study necessary. We designed a new set of scrap tracking sheets and procedures for data collection and analysis, and recommended future steps for the company's endeavor in reducing scraps.
