The Scheduling Manager notices that we have the bar stock to fulfill the order, but the parts must be cut today to make the lead-time. The Scheduling Manager asks the Manufacturing Manager to expedite the order. The Manufacturing Manager comes to you with the expedite request. There are 15 mandrels that need to be made. It’s 12pm. You only have 3 hours to produce the parts. Your team has 3 other orders that need to be completed today. Can you deliver?

You work with another team member and determine what needs to be done. You read the blueprint, pull the blanks, and run them to size and finished spec. Your partner takes on the other work orders. Your first part passes 1st piece inspection. Everything is completed by 2:45pm. The mandrels ship out that afternoon, arriving 2 days ahead of schedule.

The customer is so impressed with the quality of the tooling and the service that they received they begin referring their co-workers from other locations to buy from us, which leads to new opportunities.
