|Project Summary||Project Information|
The Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI) empowers people with vision loss to engage in fulfilling careers by offering a variety of specialized products, including a sewing production line whose products include various uniforms for the federal government. A mix of approximately 40 blind and sighted employees work various shifts throughout the day, year round.
The goal of this project is to clearly understand the current state of the facility to recommend a new layout that will improve flow, and thus also improve productivity. The project will also study current processes to increase accessibility for blind/visually impaired workers. Improving the facility will allow ABVI to accept more work, both government and commercial.
