In 2003 I was asked to totally redesign the engine sub area in building W (Bert Hess) and hand it over to ME (Gary Kempiak) for implementation. It was greeted with enthusiasm. I completely redesigned the engine sub area. These included completely redesigning MES so that anyone could walk into the zone and be able to do the job with little effort. I changed the foot print of the zone, made line side drop off areas (and order in which parts were brought to line side), Changed the Tier Tote areas to areas which were close to where assemblers used them. Changed ILC racks to where assemblers used them.
Compactor Line H31D: Took the initiative (with the assistance of both ME and LE) to arrange zone in matter in which I performed the task in building W with the exception of changing MES.
Compactor Line H30H: Areas H30H and H31H had ILC combined as shared parts. It was determined that it was not a feasible idea. After trying to get the ILC parts from the 820F models removed (the 820H models were being built and the 820F models were no longer being built) the process was not taking place and was taking to long with much confusion. Bruce (LE) was having much difficulty. He asked for my assistance. I took it upon myself (using numerous CAT and other programs) to do the project. I used MES, Bill of Material,and Exel to do the project. I was very diligent in redundancy to make sure that parts were moved once whenever possible. I laid out where ILC parts were to be assigned per different machines in H31H (Zone 1). Then laid out where ILC parts were to be assigned in H30H (Zone D). I was able to eliminate 2 large ILC racks making more space in both areas.
I continue to work with ME (Craig Auclair) to lay out new work areas being brought to line side assembly. I assist in placement and preferred furniture for the areas. This is a work in progress as of April 1, 2015.
