CASE PROBLEM 16.2: Where’s My Cart? The Senior Seminar at Allegheny State requires students to complete a process improvement project with local industry. Jim Davis and Leanna Hearn have been assigned to Wiley Construction. Here is their report. Wiley Construction Company History


Founded in 1975, Wiley Construction was one of the first designers and builders of wooden roof trusses. Over the past 40 years Wiley has prospered, and it now has office and manufacturing space of approximately 132,200 square feet and additional lumber storage facilities of about 22,300 square feet, on a 60-acre site near the Monongahela River in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Utilization of this space has never been difficult, and in the fall of 2000 Wiley proudly opened a new 6000square-foot showroom, which serves as an educational building center and showcase for many of the products it builds and/or sells. In addition to its core roof truss business, Wiley now has over 200 employees designing and building floor truss systems and preconstructed interior and exterior wall systems. Joseph Wiley, the founder and chairman of Wiley Construction, not only wanted to build superior roofing systems, he also envisioned the idea of prepackaging an entire house. The package of materials, from foundation blocks to roofing shingles, would be available through one source. This idea soon led for a custom-designed line of homes, called Wiley Homes. The key selling point to these “prepackaged� homes besides convenience and accuracy, was that, while the interior layout was universally applicable, the exterior of the home was designed with a very local flavor. ******************************************************** ISCOM 305 Entire Course

ISCOM305 Week 4 Individual Assignment Widget Production Executive Summary Taylor Inc. manufactures widgets. There is a particular assembly line for Widget X. This assembly line includes the assembly of various raw materials, subassemblies, and packing of the finished widget. Currently, approximately 27% of the total labor time is utilized in walking by assembly line personnel to obtain the needed parts required to accomplish their assigned tasks. The average hourly cost, including all benefits, is $43 per hour. Seventeen people are required on the assembly line. Lifting containers that weigh approximately 42 pounds is required in several of the respective tasks. The current output of finished widgets is 208 per 8-hour shift. The company incurs an average of four worker’s compensation claims per year in back injuries due to lifting. An average claim equals $109,000 and the employee is out for an average of 280 hours. The injured worker must be replaced to sustain production. By improving the physical layout, productivity may be improved and worker’s comp claims reduced. Two layouts have been proposed. Alternative One reduces wasted motion (walking) to 1% of total labor used on the assembly line. Physical lifting is reduced to no more then 12 pounds. Six people will be required on the assembly line. Productivity in finished goods per 8hour shift will increase to 392. It is anticipated that worker’s comp claims will be reduced to .3 per year; however, a capital investment of $1.3 million is required in robotics and mobile storage carts. Useful life of the equipment is 7 years. ******************************************************** ISCOM 305 Week 4 Learning Team Assignment Parker Earth Moving Company Consulting, Business Process Recommendations
