Abstract

Nirvel produces both large lots for the massconsumption with low variability and small lots for personalized products. The implementation of a QRM cell in manufacturing and filling sections in a continuous manufacturing environment, resulted in a 30% reduction of factory lead times. This enabled the company to improve the value chain flow efficiency, which resulted in a global delivery time reduction of 40%.
