Productivity is one of the main challenges and challenges of our clients.
The aim is to reduce production costs to a minimum by achieving better results in the shortest possible time and using fewer resources. In other words, to do more with less.
At Itemsa we have over 30 years dedicated to identifying and defining the fundamental ideas and basic criteria for continuous improvement for any type of company and situation.
We rationalise the excessive waste of time, energy and resources.
We know how to get the maximum profit of the current resources: both human and material; this reduces the wastes that become inefficiencies.
Itemsa‘s collaborations extend to numerous sectors of activity, as can be seen in the list of customers with whom we have developed projects and action plans to improve competitiveness and productivity.
We present 4 cases of success of recent collaborations:
Cas #1 | Improving productivity and production capacity in the textile sector
The project, implemented by Itemsa, aims to improve productivity by a minimum of 15%, with a target profitability of one month, and to increase the capacity of the clothing packing tables for its online distribution channel.
The implementation had to be carried out in a transparent and smooth way, ensuring the availability of optimised operational methods for packing tasks and developing alternative operational methods, as optimal as possible, for periods of high demand.
Itemsa’s implementation successfully met all the company’s expectations; executing a new distribution of packing tables and workload balancing; obtaining a productivity improvement of more than 20% and an increase in production capacity of 30%.
Cas #2 | Improving the productivity at LEDS C4
LEDS C4 assists its clients during all phases of their lighting project with personalised, quality services. Among its developments, an immersive lighting experience in the gardens of the Teatre Grec in Barcelona stands out.
LEDS C4 contacts Itemsa with the aim of improving the productivity of the Torà plant; it has the need to reduce lost time and inefficiencies to be able to absorb the important increases in production expected for several consecutive years.
Our objective was to deliver a new layout, production and logistic flows, optimised working methods and predetermined time tables that allow, in addition to assuming the expected increases in volume, to improve productivity by at least 15%.
After several months of work, our solution allows them to improve productivity by 24.9% thanks to the implementation of a new layout that allows them to work with continuous flow and absorb the expected increases in production volumes in an efficient manner. At the same time, we facilitate the management of optimised operating methods, especially for Assembly, Verification and Packaging tasks.
Cas #3 | Improving the productivity at ROS ROCA
In a very competitive environment, where the number of commercial operations is increasing, ROS ROCA needs to transfer the production of certain products to the Tàrrega factory, and take advantage of the fact that the entire boilermaking process is carried out in a tight flow (all processes sequenced), when the Dennis Eagle factory works “by batches”, with a total time of 62 hours/unit.
Our objective is to integrate in the Tàrrega factory, in an optimised way, the boilermaking process of the Phoenix model that was manufactured in the Dennis Eagle factory.
Itemsa‘s proposal starts up and implements a new distribution in the factory and balancing of workloads, methods and times, which allow to produce in tense flow all the processes of Boilermaking of the Phoenix Model; achieving an improvement of the productivity of more than 20%, with respect to the initial times.
