We would like to share a recent success story at our customer, an automobile major having a state of art manufacturing facility, rolling out light and heavy commercial vehicles.

Activity : Material shifting

For shifting materials from stores to production area, the shifting was done by fork lift on a daily basis. The distance between stores and process area is 2.8KM one way. The forklifts used to make 50 trips per day carrying one pallet per trip to deliver the material.

WWL has taken the challenging responsibility of revamping the activity and reduce the Turnaround Time. WWL did the study with their technical value streaming experts and brought a wonderful alternate solution.

There was a specially designed milk run vehicle which was stationed inside the factory premises after its morning trip. This can accommodate more than 18 pallets. The material was loaded into the truck and transferred to the process line. The trucks make 3 trips to complete the activity. There was substantial saving of time and fuel and the manpower. This increases the material availability on time near the process station.

This saved the forklift movement time, supervisor’s time and driver’s time. The forklift driver’s time was very effectively used in other activities, effective scrap removal, reengineering the stores.

To know more about this, please write to gopal@go2wwl.com.

We will share more such interesting success stories in the weeks to come.
