Wire-Harness Audit Improves Productivity

February 2009
Assembly;Feb2009, Vol. 52 Issue 2, p30
The article reports on the changes in Advanced Interconnect Message (AIM) following a wire-processing audit in cooperation with Harry Coates, regional sales manager of Schleuniger. The wire department of AIM repositioned the entire floor to enhance material flow and bring it nearer to the termination department. The firm bought new machines to improve quality and lessen the number of job setups. AIM president Tom Hess says that it would have been tough for his company to accommodate the rise in demand without the changes made in the company.
