ILC Restructure at Gardner - A New Case Study

The Need: The 35,000 square foot ILC in Derby had evolved over time as new projects were introduced and volumes increased. The growth of the centre in this way created constraints on the business. There was a lack of room for storage for finished parts and media for kitting. This meant there was no room for expansion of new or existing customers. There was non-value added activities taking place and skills were not transferable between customers’ kitting, assembly and quality assurance operations. Inefficiency of material flow around the shop floor and no overall conceptual plan existed guiding development. Standard operating procedures were also not in place for kitting and quality assurance.

In addition to the physical layout of the ILC, the facilities director Paul O’Gara also recognised that whilst the workforce was highly skilled and very flexible, there was a need for an organisational restructure to create more effective job roles and a better level of overall accountability.

Tactical Implementation & Plan Creation at Gardner

“We have really benefited from doing TIP’s. The most important thing is that they help you keep track of projects and tasks, giving you visibility of your status against plan.”
Andy Cook, Systems & Engineering Manager, Gardner Basildon

The Need: As part of the Supply Chain Excellence Programme at Gardner Aerospace, a site based strategy relating to Safety, Quality, Cost, Delivery & People is created. This features key projects and major milestones to be able to enhance the performance of the business and provide cost reductions. There were varying levels of project management skills across the business so a simple and straightforward approach was required to train the leadership team to deliver successful projects.

New Case Study

Over the next couple of months Redthorn will be posting and promoting various brand new case studies.  These case studies will provide information on how we help our clients on an ongoing basis.

First up is….

Scrap Reduction at Gardner Aerospace Hull

The Need: Redthorn Ltd have already worked with Gardner Hull to roll out a strategy for identifying and managing day to day operational problems, plus the design and implementation of plans for performance improvement. As part of this policy deployment, they are using an operational control room which identified, through their structured monthly review, that the cost of scrap was above target. This was captured as an operational issue in the control room and a continuous activity was launched to bring the cost of scrap under control.
