Germane Systems Hosts Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME)
November 1, 2010
Members of the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) will visit Germane on November 16th as part of their International Lean Conference. We are honored to be selected as a plant tour for the conference attendees. AME’s tours are highly rated because of the detailed audit procedure each tour site must pass to confirm their ability to showcase innovative Lean thinking and practices. AME visitors will see first hand how Germane Systems converted its production areas using visual workplace designs, standardized on-line work instructions and implemented a new facility layout dramatically reducing manufacturing defects and improving lead time. Visitors will see how the entire process is being tuned to not only increase flow but balance tasks throughout the kitting, assembly, quality control, burn-in and final inspection areas.
