This project addresses late orders Saint-Gobain experiences with their superabrasive grinding wheels by implementing solutions aimed at reducing product lead time. We conducted 5S and implemented standard work documents for Saint-Gobain’s siding operation and OD grinding stations. These solutions led to a reduction in process time and increased capacity, creating a foundation for future waste reduction and reducing the need for overtime labor.
