Recently adding research and development with new products entering the market soon, CIMtech has branched out over the Pacific Ocean with a manufacturing plant in Asia. While still a young company CIMtech has ambitious goals to grow and strengthen their company.
During the time spent with CIMtech, we focused on the current work order process at CIMtech, with interviews conducted with the President of Manufacturing Paul Ghotra, and associates involved with the current work order process, results were a defined process flow. Additionally a value added and non-valued analysis, root causes analysis that garnered the following information:
- Lack of standard operating system in place, once a purchase order was received that triggers a work order form, control and routing sheet. This process increased necessary non-value added activities.
- Time Constraints, engineers and machinists were found to be too busy to fill out necessary information into the current work order form.
- Lack of clarity on the importance the work order form provided at CIMtech.
