This project focused on improving the rework cycle at Glades Park, General Electric Services Cincinnati Shop in Hamilton, Ohio. Analyses of rework cycles through routers, the master menu system and shop floor operators prompted investigation of three main problem areas: turn-around-time (TAT), margin degradation and balancing yield. This lead to improvements in two areas; TAT was reduced by removing unnecessary steps within rework processes and margin degradation was addressed by developing guidelines that advise management when to investigate straggling blades.
