Process Improvement, Virtual Process Validation, and Discrete Event Simulation

ID: 735231 Brazil

Request Expert

Expert possesses more than 25 years of experience working in industries of different segments (metal mechanic, polymers, rubber, automotive and machining). Combined with his depth of lean process experience, Expert has specialized himself planning and implementing new processes and performing process improvement. His methods include reducing work in process, cycle time balancing, optimizing operators standard work, supporting lean material strategy, identifying and eliminating non-value-added tasks. The results: production capacity boosting and piece cost reduction.

Additionally, Expert provides support to plants to identify and resolve top bottlenecks implementing methodologies for processes monitoring and plant management.

With significant expertise in discrete event simulation, Expert has a strong capacity to support partners through the creation of models with a very high level of representatives to validate processes even before its implementation, which makes the process concept meets the expected manufacturing targets.

Additional Experience

Expert Witness Experience
Witness inspection support for aerospace segment, a vendor in Brazil (Tracker) was requested from an American company (Ducommun) to construct 15 Inspection fixtures that were going to be used to validate the construction of the airplane flaps. The support provided was to certify the fixtures were being constructed within the schedule, validate critical dimensions of sub-assemblies and final assemblies, guarantee the use of correct measurement methods and that the instruments used for measurement were certified.

The biggest challenge was to guarantee the stability of the fixtures that were too big (more than 3 meters length) in a facility with a variation of more than 20C along the day, with very tight tolerances it would be impossible to validate it due to fixture dilatation.

To resolve it the vendor constructed a climate room with controlled temperature which guaranteed the stability of the fixtures making possible the validation of them.
