MTM regional group meeting in Suzhou – Successful MTM application
At the end of June, specialists and managers from BSH Home Appliances Co.,Ltd., Bosch Automotive Diesel Systems Co. Ltd., Siemens Switchgear Limited (Shanghai), Schaeffler Holding (China) Co. Ltd. and Suzhou Hazelnut Technology Co. Ltd. met in Suzhou for the 2nd meeting of the MTM regional group China. The focus was on the application of MTM in the design of work systems.
The example of Suzhou Fordman Robot System Co. Ltd. showed how successfully Chinese companies also work with the MTM method standard. Xiangyang Li, responsible for the project, reported an improvement of production efficiency by more than 30 percent. The return of investment was also achieved within only six months.
The participants of the regional meeting under the leadership of Wei Jiang of MTM (Shanghai) Enterprise Management Consulting Co. discussed approaches to increase productivity and exchanged their respective experiences with the application of MTM. An important point was to use MTM already from the early phase of the product development process. The participants agreed that MTM can help designers to do the right thing from the beginning, to evaluate constructive solutions exactly with regard to their suitability for assembly and thus to create a reliable data basis for investment decisions in the design of manual workstations and also in the introduction of hybrid or fully automated solutions.
Another topic was the contribution that the method standard MTM can make in the Digital Factory. The discussion on this is to be continued at the next meeting.
