FEATURED CASE STUDY
Bringing Consistency to the Process
We recognized a way to not only simplify final vehicle assembly but to do so in a way that improved quality and allowed for warranty reduction.
Background & Situation
Our customer was facing both inventory and ongoing quality issues related to the handling and assembly of glass parts. We delivered solutions that freed up critical assembly line space and helped eliminate a structural defect.
- Glass requires specific tooling and technology for handling and assembly
- Valuable factory space was being lost due to glass inventory and line-side assembly
- The glass door on the cab was sagging, causing the vehicle cab to lose its seal after continued use
- Material costs were driven by higher minimum order quantities and factory scrap
By introducing state-of-the-art assembly technology for glass adhesion and handing, our client enjoyed a range of benefits.
- Cost-beneficial strategic supply chain partnerships
- Triggered/sequenced to production line for just-in-time delivery
- Optimized packaging for production and service use
CASE STUDY RESULTS
From recapturing floor space and removing complex assembly to reducing material cost and eliminating factory scrap, our customer reaped the benefits of WCI’s expertise and knowledge which positively impacted the total cost of the glass assembly process.
