Engineering and Technology Management
The implementation of a new and innovative process into an established manufacturing process can be very disruptive to the current status quo but with correct analysis to support the change, “buy in” from both upper management, and good support staff the transition can be less disruptive. To find areas that were in need of change the Manufacturing Engineering (MFE) Manager assembled a small group of engineers. The team found several areas in which change could be implemented that would be high impact with low risk. The manager chose to “socialize” the thought of change with the Manufacturing managers long before the analysis had been conducted. This allowed him to address many of the concerns before making the actual changes.
