Abstract

Central Industrial Supply (CIS) in Wuxi, China is a manufacturing company that produces a variety of electromechanical components. The lead time for the 9G product is 6 to 7 days from when it leaves the first factory until it is ready to be shipped. Our project focuses on creating current and future state value stream maps which, when implemented, will decrease the current lead time by 50%, as well as provide recommendations to improve current operations within the company.
