Process Improvement for Electrical Panel Manufacturing

In an effort to move the company toward One Boeing, the Electrical Center of Excellence (ECOE) will be increasing production by onboarding more programs. Management believes the current program-based manufacturing layout has resulted in siloed production and duplicated resources and work practices that cannot be sustained with an increase in volume. Boeing Defense, Space & Security (BDS) partnered with the Tauber team to move away from this siloed production system and toward a process based manufacturing system within the ECOE.
