Abstract

Our project goal was to help Madera y Metal, a trophy manufacturing company in Paraguay, reduce the number of orders delivered later than the internal due date. The team used A3 problem-solving to examine root causes and develop solutions. The team guided the implementation of a new software system to track orders and set due dates, analyzed seasonality in demand, and created an order prioritization ranking tool, to allow the company to be more proactive in avoiding late orders.
