Saint-Gobain, a grinding wheel manufacturing plant in Worcester, MA, sponsored this project with the overall goal of closely observing the operations of one of their highly specialized grinding wheels. During the project, the team completed time studies for each grinding wheel process, validated the components of the product cost structure, and edited the cost structure when needed. The team also identified several opportunities to reduce costs at specific process steps and developed and evaluated three improvement ideas. Additionally, findings about the documentation practices at Saint-Gobain were compared to the standard best practices in the manufacturing industry. Recommendations were then made to Saint-Gobain on how they could better meet documentation best practices.
