Creating Manufacturing Agility

Efficient usage of space is one of the most challenging aspects of today’s manufacturing environment. Holo-Krome is a leading manufacturer of custom and generic fasteners in the United States. Our team is working to complete a redesign of Holo-Krome’s current floor layout in order to optimize the floor space being used. The addition of two high efficiency machines will enable the company to meet growing demand and better accommodate the customer’s specifications. As business and engineering students, we have a unique background to create a layout that optimizes floor space with consideration given to business measures. We have decided the best way to do this is through the creation of an agile cell, freeing up space for the new machines while accommodating monthly shifts in demand.
