Project Statement

A materials flow system encompases the flow of material from the time they enter the warehouse until the time they leave. It should define smooth flow of material and allow for parts tracking throughout the system. Additionally, all processes should be standard and well documented to allow for simple operator execution. Currently, L3 has little standardization, no process documentation, and no process for continuous improvement in their front end processes.

The objectives of this project are to analyze the current state of the front end processes and create a future state with defined material flow. Within the future state there will be documented standard work and procedures for continuous improvement events with employee involvement. Additionally, a full warehouse management system will be investigated. The system must work with Wisys (the current system at L3). The overall goal of this project is to improve cycle time and on-time delivery metrics from their baseline levels. The expected result is a working prototype of the materials flow process, including all process documentation, that can be handed off to the L3 team. In addition, a plan for the warehouse management system will be created to be handed off to the IT department.
