Standardization of component-manufacturing for a major Slovak manufacturing company

A major Slovak manufacturing engineering company, active in both Slovakia as well as on the international markets, with a turnover of 17 mil. EUR, which is engaged in the production of axles and brakes for trailers and industrial vehicles, decided to use our services for cost and process optimization.

One of our common projects was optimizing the production through the standardization of component-production according to production capabilities, logistical capacities, costs and time.

In the first phase of the project, weastra has suggested a set of possible portfolios of products and parts for standardizing components, based on an in-depth analysis of historical data, production forecast for the following period and based on interviews with key employees.

The next phase of the project was aimed at identifying cost-optimal variants and determining the optimal number of components as well as the structure of the components.

One result of the analysis was weastra determining the minimum inventory and optimal production batches in accordance to logistics and production capabilities.

In addition, another result of the project was defining a complete methodology and a list of requirements for changes in the information system, which in future will significantly facilitate the setting of new components according to current needs of the company and according to required production efficiency.

The unquestionable benefit of these solutions is not only the reduction of production costs but also reduction of delivery times to customers and the elimination of downtime in manufacturing.
