Optimizing Advanced Manufacturing of Fasteners

Stanley Engineered Fasteners is aiming to have a deep reflection into the way in which some of its North American plants operate. The Tauber team will be leading internal audits of its Stanley Engineered Fastening plant in Elyria, OH, and will use a combination of lean tools and advanced manufacturing to develop a framework of how to optimize key areas like tooling management and material delivery. By developing new sustainable strategies for operational improvements, Stanley Black and Decker can cut costs and improve production capabilities.
