Production SupervisorAllison Transmission Inc Automatic Transmissions － Indianapolis, Indiana
Lead a group of United Auto Workers (UAW) to achieve desired production output Through effective communication was able to achieve cell theoretical capacities in numerous cells in the different departments.
Many of which were communicated as not capable.
All departments I have or had responsibility for have seen an increase in operational efficiencies during the time spent in them.
Manage the production process to ensure quality parts are produced per organizational targets Work with engineering to maximize production efficiency Worked with tooling engineers and CNC programmers to increase capacity on a constraint machine in one particular cell.
This particular machine is an Enshu that drills thirty-six holes and mill cuts two tangs on a particular part.
Was able to gain five additional parts per shift by asking questions about the particular style of drill being used.
The drill chosen has a longer tool life and the ability to be run at a higher rpm and fed faster than the old style which reduced the cycle time of the machine.
The old cell capacity was sixty-five pieces, and after this change was able to achieve seventy pieces.
Schedule and assign personnel; establish priorities; monitor progress; resolve problems; report results of the processing flow on shift production summaries.
Implemented manufacturing systems that meet program goals Managed several projects simultaneously Developed, planned, organized, and managed detailed program timing and cost budgets Developed a project that required moving a piece of assembly equipment from one station to another to better balance the assembly line work content which also reduced a person in the department from five employees to four employees.
With this project was able to maintain existing production output with less people.
Developed a plan to improve an existing sub-assembly line theoretical capacity.
Worked with controls engineers and skilled trades to decrease cycle time on the constraint operation.
This particular station is a multiple spindle nut runner which torque nuts onto studs to hold a joint together.
Through programming and equipment changes was able to reduce the cycle time by thirty seconds per part.
This reduction in cycle time was able to gain an additional thirty-three units per shift.
It increased the cell capacity from 150 units to 183 units per shift.
Through a span of about three years working with various groups was able to reduce total HPU (hours per unit) in a final assembly area by thirty-four percent.
This was achieved through various small projects and a focused coordinated effort.
Continuously improved quality, cost, responsiveness, safety Improved quality by implementing various poka-yoke systems and reliable error proofing devices that would detect issues in station or cell rather than in a later operation or by the customer.
Supported the training of shop floor personnel responsible for operating / supporting manufacturing and assembly equipment.
