Case Study 1-08723
IET worked with the Magna project team to develop a strategic and specific material storage, line delivery, and line stocking plan for a new interior program for Mazda Motors.
Magna is a leading tier one automotive supplier in the world market with production plants world-wide.
"The IET team members brought critical and realistic industrial engineering to ensure visual and simple material flow for this critical new program."
With customers demanding in-sequence and JIT delivery, the capability for mixed-mode production and storage has become a critical competitive challenge and advantage.
The new production requirements included over 100 end items that were required to be delivered JIT to the sequencing facility. The component and raw material requirements resulted in hundreds of part numbers and critical control of storage, inventory control, line delivery, line stocking, containers, and finished goods staging.
