Description

America’s manufacturers are at the soul of country’s economy, providing good-paying jobs for millions of Americans. The U.S. manufacturing sector is today the world’s largest and is number one in GDP as indicated by International Monetary Fund (IMF) 2011. Despite few challenges, many sectors of American manufacturing have the potential to enjoy significant growth and success. Over the last 30 years, the United States has had the largest increase in manufacturing output among major developed countries. Our enterprise, An American manufacturer, carries a long history of industrial manufacturing service to the local as well as international market. In order to maximize the production, profit and quality with minimized loss in the process, certain manufacturing and process improvement techniques were carried out at the site. Today these tools are practiced and studied not only in manufacturing enterprises but also in various sectors such as hospitals, recreational centers, government and private sectors and so on. Utilizing lean manufacturing principles, we studied the existing process status, analyzed all the data drafted and suggested appropriate solutions and methodologies to the leadership to overcome the discrepancies found and to increase the efficiency and quality of the manufacturing process and products. Companies today are spending millions of dollars in research and development projects to enhance manufacturing processes and their products so that they can lead the competing market with one step ahead of all. The research was greatly helpful to plan and achieve the enterprise’s future incentives and revenue as well as other core goals.
