In association with SMAS, VV has been working with SMEs in the manufacturing arena in a drive to improve processes, reduce waste and improve revenue streams.

Online Electronics Ltd specialises in the design and manufacture of oil and gas pipeline pig monitoring equipment, pipeline data communications and logging systems. Head office is based in Aberdeen, with satellite offices in North and South America, the Middle East and Asia. The company has an annual turnover of ~ £2.5M.

A Lean Awareness modular package was delivered to management and key staff. 5S workplace organisation was introduced and visual management techniques (cleaning stations, shadow boards and colour coding) explored. A T Card scheduling system was introduced to the workshop to monitor targets, activity and deadlines. Mapping and tri-storming techniques resulted in enhanced layout and use of the workshop and its floor space. A 100 day plan has been created with the management to ensure sustainment of the Lean activity. Added value for the project was estimated at £51K by the Company.
