Light Guide Systems™ Benchmarking Study at Chrysler Academy Demonstrates Results
The study, performed in August 2014 by OPS Solutions at Chrysler’s World Class Manufacturing Academy (WCMA), compared the effectiveness of paper-based Standard Work Instructions (SWIs) and the OPS Solutions’ Light Guide System of visual workflow and auto-confirmation. The benchmarking was performed on both an assembly process and a logistics process. Both the paper-based SWI and Light Guide had a chance to be first and thus normalized for any learning curve effects. The results are clear: when processes were enabled by Light Guide Systems, there were significant improvements in quality, cycle time and throughput.
The Light Guide Systems team is excited to visit Waukesha next week as part of the Wisconsin Tech Summit. As a featured “Emerging Company,” founder Paul Ryznar will be on-site connecting with other technology leaders from across the Midwest.
