Project Brief: Glenrock Rubber Products manufacture high quality industrial rubber mats specifically targeted at overseas customers.
Project Details: We are currently engaged by Glenrock in implementing 5S, SMED and Production Planning. Initially, there was no awareness on 5S. Lot of unwanted items in the factory, no specific arrangements / location for the materials and poor cleanliness. We implemented 5S in the factory, removed all the unwanted items, provided specific workplace arrangements. Set-up time for the presses were around 1 hour. This was reduced to less than 20 minutes using SMED implementation.
Results: More than 12.5% improvement in output.
