Abstract

Dee Zee Manufacturing is a company that is most known for making running boards, tool boxes, and roof racks for trucks and SUV’s. The company is becoming more sought after in the automotive industry as they are now producing OEM products for major car companies. The OEE does not reflect current process. The resources aren’t at their point-of-use. The proper number of operators is not defined. By establishing one piece flow, the number of operators can be determined. Not having the correct number of operators could create certain areas in the process to be starved of productivity. By optimizing the number of operators, the process is able to function as a whole more efficiently.
