A large global Construction and Mining Equipment Manufacturer wanted to increase their market share and product quality.
Customized curriculum development was the solution that the ASI team settled on. Our executives and Master Black Belts worked with this client to develop their skill set, delivering the training and mentoring their Black Belts. We continued our engagement and certified internal Black Belts to become Master Black Belts.
The customized curriculum development approach worked. ASI Consulting Group played an integral part in training and mentoring nearly 150 Master Black Belts and 1700 Black Belts. The client’s financial benefit from this engagement exceeded $800 million.
Development of a new advanced air fan system used for cooling was stalling. After 18 months of development work, the team had not determined how to design the fan to meet the new, higher requirements for performance. With six (6) months left before production, the team leader suggested using Robust Engineering.
After our fast analysis of the advanced air fan development plan, ASI Consulting Group recommended that the client implement Robust Engineering methodology developed by ASI’s founder, Dr. Genichi Taguchi.
The Final design was completed on time for pre-production testing and surpassed the new requirements for performance. Warranty data was 68% less than the earlier design. Knowledge gained from the engagement has been applied to four (4) other vehicle lines and is being applied to the next generation product.
