The MTC worked with Raybloc (X-ray Protection) Ltd to achieve a 50% reduction in lead time from 16 to 8 weeks, resulting in a 10% increase in sales, the achievement of ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditation 9 months ahead of schedule and a 10 percent reduction in production costs.
As the Raybloc order book grew, their lead-times lengthened inhibiting the growth of the business.
The MTC created and supported Raybloc through a development journey to achieve the goals of the business that began with coaching and mentoring the workforce and helping the business to understand the priorities, issues, culture and opportunities of the current-state.
Raybloc were supported in improving planning and scheduling and better leveraging business-data. With the aid of digital tools and up-skilling the team, key performance indicators and targets were visualised on the shop floor and in the offices to encourage behaviours that aligned with the overall goals of the business.
