Holo-Krome Improved Manufacturing Facility Layout
Holo-Krome is a critical application fastener manufacturer located in Wallingford, CT. Products manufactured at this facility are used in a wide variety of industries where material failure is not an option. The goal of this project was to improve the manufacturing facility from a relatively inefficient layout to a more condensed and effective layout that uses the factory floorspace more efficiently. Ranking the manufacturing cells on a scale of sales value per square foot identified which areas could use the most improvement. Through implementation of an agile manufacturing cell, machines with low utilization were consolidated to make room for machines that would utilize available floorspace in a more cost-effective manner.
