ChallengeWith car makers from around the world opening plants in Mexico, business is booming for Tachi-S Mexico. Starting in 2013, the automotive supply company expected production to double over the next two years. However, they were having difficulty achieving their growth objectives because of an equipment base that was not optimized. “Low efficiency, high fabric consumption, and quality issues were the main challenges we were facing in the cutting room,” explains Ian Donalds, Manger of Tachi-S’ Calvillo plant. 
SolutionLectra experts were confident that performing in-depth analyses of the company’s current production processes would allow them to identify areas for improvement and draw up a customized action plan that would enable Tachi-S Mexico to reduce operational costs, and improve process efficiency and performance without buying additional equipment. 

 

“In addition to a reduction in costs per set, this project has helped us improve the quality of our products and delivery times in the development of new platforms.”
