When Quick Response becomes a way of thinking
Allan Ohlsen – Logistics Director & Lone Gloy – Production Manager at OJ Electronics
OJ Electronics implemented its first Quick Response Manufacturing cell in 2014 as a "one stop shopping" QRM cell, focused on producing prototypes to support R&D. The focus on time was necessary to meet the Time to Market goals OJ has for new product introductions. After a successful implementation and sustainable results, the Quick Response thinking spread to other parts of the organization. The next QRM initiative was to attack the time it took to implement a ECO (Engineer Change Order) in the organization. Hear how a group of employees from different departments moved together, streamlined some processes and slashed the time to implement a ECO at OJ Electronics.
In 2014, OJ Electronics marked 50 years of designing and developing electronic controls for underfloor heating and HVAC controls and power. During that time, OJ Electronics has amassed application-specific experience and know-how that allows them to create innovative standard and customised solutions that support and build our customers’ business.
