IDEX IH&S is a global leader in life science fluidics, microfluidics, and optics. Ball seats, a legacy product, support $4.85M revenue for their Middleboro, MA site. Over the past couple of years, the Ball Seats department has been facing a challenge with an On-Time Delivery rate of 59%. My project examines ways to improve inefficiencies and optimize the production process. I accomplished these goals by leading a Value Stream Mapping rapid improvement event, collecting and analyzing data through Standard Work studies, and introducing a new flow on the production floor that resulted in a 40% increase in throughput.
