JIT & Focused Workcells

Kaizen practices are an important part of Aeroteam's work culture. The major elements of Kaizen currently in practice and their benefits are:
Inventory Turns/Reduced Work-In-Process (WIP): By ordering and receiving raw materials on a "pull" basis, we are able to accomplish multiple inventory turns from raw stock to finished product. Thus we have less money tied up in the inventory, and can increase our cash flow. It also allows us to offer more competitive pricing to our LTA customers.
Our in-house fixturing capabilities are dedicated to product flow as we take advantage of every opportunity to orient the part for the following process steps. When possible, parts are fixtured so that the production process is not interrupted. This allows part loading times to be absorbed inside the run time. It increases productivity and helps us to reduce labor costs.
By mapping the product flow through its entire process from start to finish, we can locate equipment in the optimum location to reduce travel time between operations. This also allows us to have dedicated staging areas for raw material and perishable tooling.
We have operators tackling multiple machines and multiple operations simultaneously.
