Getting On Time Delivery out of OUR Job Shop
Contour Tool embarked on a 4 month program to improve our On-Time Delivery in not only our Tooling Dept, but with our short-run CNC production. We instituted a plan shop wide with the help of Dr. Lisa Lang via her program, Velocity Scheduling (http://velocityschedulingsystem.com/) that has its roots in the theory of constraints (http://www.scienceofbusiness.com/home/what-is-theory-of-constraints-toc.aspx).
Since implementing the full scale program in March of 2010, Contour has been 96% on time from 75% on time. We use the Velocity progam not only to manage our production but to manage our engineering services as well.
