Custom Castings

Cellular Transition
Our journey from batch & queue to flow production

Custom Castings began its Lean journey with the implementation of a structured 5S program.  With processes organized, the need to change from batch & queue to flow production became very evident.  In 2015, a project was launched to transition to cellular manufacturing.  All of the major value streams were mapped to define cells that would allow work to flow from molten metal to finished goods with minimal changes of ownership.  On this tour, you will hear about the challenges and successes of this multi-year project, about SMED and TPM implementations, cross training and the importance of buy-in and support from all employees.
