Joist Trek: the Next Generation

After a deep dive into AIP Canam’s current state of plant configuration and existing processes in those plants, the Tauber team built a framework to evaluate costs, benefits and risks for future design alternatives. Based on analysis using this framework and in-depth discussions with the R&D team and key stakeholders, the team proposed a course of action to realize Canam’s ideal future state, resulting in significant improvements in labor efficiency, safety, and capacity.
