This high-production mini-mill steel producer and recycler was working in a traditional model of functional departments: planning and scheduling, operations, maintenance, warehouse and logistics, which could not deliver to the required levels of competitiveness. Kaufman Global was selected to deliver a program that effectively achieved tangible business results, drove organizational focus and alignment and entrenched internal Op-Ex capabilities.
Facility work optimized plant throughput by improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness, Equipment Reliability, Product Yield, equipment performance and changeover time. Internal capability was advanced through the formation and training of a Rolling Resources team. This team worked and traveled with Kaufman Global to speed a consistent deployment approach to continuous improvement throughout the sites while working to improve and integrate business processes linked between the mills and corporate functions.
