The company

Manufacturer of welded parts

The problem

The company manufactures mechanical welded parts, mainly steel, using a machine shop setup. Its more restrictive resource was space as production capacity was used at 100%. Unable to expand its facilities, the company partnered with MELIORE to find solutions.

The approach

MELIORE used several tools to optimize their business processes. Using flow simulation, optimal production schedule and stocks forecasts MELIORE found a ‘hidden’ capacity in inefficiencies.

The benefits

The company was able to increase its production capacity using the same space by 21%. In addition to this resulting benefit, they also reduced their delivery time by 27%.
