Synergy educated our company in the value of Lean and the proper execution of Kaizen and ERP optimization. As they facilitated each event, they were teaching our team how to sustain improvements and how to continue the program for years to come. Synergy made it clear, they were here to educate, not to direct and that if we were to be successful going forward, we would need to become the experts and take full ownership of the program.
We now have a better understanding of inventory and order demand. Raw material purchasing has improved since we can utilize economic order quantities and better schedule our orders.
From the shop foreman to the quality department, everybody has their own personalized display that’s tied to their schedule. It’s almost like a Taco Bell board. The job at the top is the first job to be worked on and that’s for each resource, whether it’s quality control or one of the CNC machines. It’s a huge time saver!
It’s a tremendous time saver and greatly enhances good will with our customers being able to respond so quickly to their requests.
