Making More Demand into More Opportunity
McElroy Manufacturing wrestles with complex routings, complex bills of materials, and a great deal of variability in internal processes and external demand. With a recent spike in demand, this recipe began to feel more like a recipe for chaos than a recipe for success. On-time delivery fell. Lead times and overtime rose. McElroy needed a solution.
McElroy Manufacturing’s infinite capacity planning system was not doing the job. After hearing about our proven expertise in Theory of Constraints consulting, they got in touch with the On-Time Edge Team. We helped them both implement the planning system itself, and all of the accompanying process. For McElroy, it’s become a near organizational-wide philosophy that extends from the shop floor all the way through customer expectations.
In a short time, we helped McElroy Manufacturing achieve…
