Bridge the gap between management goals and performance
Our industrial engineering team works with organizations to improve productivity, quality, and operations. We’ll work with you to enhance organizational performance and identify potential process improvement steps to minimize variation, increase customer satisfaction, decrease operating costs and establish a consistent level of quality.
How IES Can Help
IES offers either on-site or classroom training, depending on the needs of your organization. Specific tools, analysis, and activities that IES’ industrial engineering team provide include:
- Work measurement with Timer Pro – Learn the importance and usage of time standards and learn how to develop specific time standards to initiate continuous improvement for your organization.
- Facilities layout improvement – If you have capacity constraints, assessing physical space usage and making changes can reveal opportunities for improvement. We utilize Auto Cad and Solidworks to help you understand your space better, so you can manage it more efficiently. To learn more about our facilities layout improvement services, contact us today.
- Simulation (S8) – Static and Dynamic
- Statistical process control (SPC) – An industry standard method of quality control, SPC employs statistical methods to monitor and control a process to assure quality during the manufacturing process. SPC and be applied to any process where the conforming product output can be measured. Measurement data is gathered in real-time during manufacturing to ensure that processes operate efficiently, and produce more specification-conforming products with less waste.
- Measurement system analysis (MSA) – An ISO requirement, MSA is a prerequisite for any process analysis to ensure that the variation due to measurement error is small relative to variations in the process.
- Failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) – FMEA is a systematic step-by-step approach for identifying failures, faults and variations in a product, design and/or process. Courses and training in FMEA explain the fundamental benefits of failure mode effects analysis as a preventive tool for design development.
- Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) – A Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (PFMEA) provides a structured, qualitative, analytical framework which taps the knowledge and multi-disciplined experience of an organization’s employees. PFMEA training is essential to discover how a company or organizations’ process flows, PFMEAs, control plans and shop floor documentation can be used to achieve process standardization and improvement.
- Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis (DFMEA) – Design Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (DFMEA) is the application of the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) method specifically to a product/service design. DFMEA is used for identifying potential risks introduced in a new or changed design of a product or service. Design FMEA will identify design functions, failure modes and their effects on the customer to improve overall safety and performance.
