Simplifying the simple.
For a small company, the simplicity of things is basic in its daily life.
Our client employed an assembled housing formed by two pieces, which meant a logistics issue to be improved. In addition, mounting the electronic equipment in the housing supposed valuable time in the total manufacturing time of the product.
So our job was to optimize the production process through the redesign of the housing:
reduction of the part price,
flat hinge design to reduce space required,
reduction of time for the assembly components-housing,
improving of logistics,
reduction of handling costs,
With a simpler housing design – integrating lid and bottom in a piece clipped herself – a reduction of 20% of working time was achieved in the assembly process.
Similarly, the administrative management of purchasing and logistics improved, due to the fact of a tracking of a component instead of two.
