Hufcor has consistently pushed the barriers of the industry and has announced a breakthrough with its new operable wall systems. They announced that this novel production line should be ready soon and will lead to an increase by up to 25 percent in productions at one of their facilities. Hufcor has noted a growing demand for its products and services, particularly in the construction industry, and came up with a unique way to meet those demands.
New Designs for the Wall System
In order to come up with its novel solution, Hufcor derived some inspiration from the commercial, education, and hospitality industries. This new operable wall production system is based on the idea of movable partitions and glass walls. The chief goal of Hufcor is to meet the rising demands of their customers. In order to do this, they knew they needed to do something to increase their production capacity. That is exactly what happened with this new operable wall system. These efficiencies are going to allow them to provide their customers with faster turnaround times that can be expanded to other industries as well.
A Growth in Efficiency
This new production line is simply a subset of Hufcor’s commitment to capacity and efficiency. This comes from the new management team which took over at their Janesville facility recently. The management team decided that they need to focus on the customer. Therefore, the company decided to make an investment to demonstrate their commitment to the customer. Hufcor knew that the industry was getting more competitive and if they didn’t have the capacity or inventory to meet these demands, they would lose their customers. Therefore, they came up with ways to develop more competitive lead times that would represent new deliveries for the customers.
A Dedication to the Lean Six Sigma Model
In order to brainstorm ideas, Hufcor put the Lean Six Sigma method to work. They used this method to identify areas of waste and improvement. They wanted to make sure that every step in the production line had a purpose. Eventually, they were able to pare down their production process while adding a new step in the form of this novel wall production system. It will be exciting to see this new production method in action.
