Located in a part of Scotland which is now the Oil & Gas Capital of Europe, Woollard and Henry have diversified into fabricating Personnel transfer Vessels for the Offshore Energy markets.  Work in the fabrication sector has led to the winning of a Queens Award for International Trade.

Assistance was required to process map the Frog (Personal Transfer Vessel) fabrication line and identify process improvement opportunities where possible.  As 3rd Party SMAS practitioners VV facilitated a process mapping exercise that covered the Frog fabrication line and supporting functions.  The project was delivered over 3 one-day workshops.

A detailed implementation plan was created that would allow the Company to remove  ‘waste’ and create benefit.  The total ‘Value-Added’ savings for the 3-day project were accessed at £26K.
