Blow Molded PlasticsLean Manufacturing:

At Western Case, we strive to create simple and repeatable blow molding product manufacturing processes by identifying best practices everywhere possible.

We believe that standardized blow molding production work procedures bring consistency and better quality to our processes. In addition, as processes are properly balanced, best practices are established and documented and can become the basis for continuous improvement.

Continuous Improvement:

The foundation of the Western Case Production System (WPS) is based on continuous improvement.

One component of improving our blow molding product manufacturing processes is the elimination of all forms of waste, or muda.

Muda, is anything that does not add value for the customer, including incidental work – Waste learning and Identification is part of an overall WPS Lean Training associates receive at our facility. The WPS training includes an introduction to lean manufacturing, understanding and eliminating the seven wastes, continuous flow, cell design, standardized work poka-yoke, kaizen and other lean principles.

Principles of 6S

Our employees are trained and practicing the principles of 6-S, known as the basic fundamentals of lean manufacturing. Kaisan events are frequently held with our employees to ensure that these principles are sustained and practiced on an everyday basis.

  1. Sort – All unneeded tools, parts and supplies are removed from the area .
  2. Set in Order – A place for everything and everything is in its place.
  3. Shine – The area is cleaned as the work is performed.
  4. Standardize – Cleaning and identification methods are consistently applied.
  5. Sustain – 5S is a habit and is continually improved.
  6. Safety – Work areas are safe and free of hazardous or dangerous conditions.
