Smart Engineering Pays Dividends

Every automated assembly system designed, manufactured and installed by Preh IMA Automation (PIA) Evansville adheres to these five lean principles:

1. Identify Value – PIA Evansville specifies value from the standpoint of the end customer.

2. Map the Value Stream – PIA Evansville identifies all the steps in the value stream, eliminating, whenever possible, those steps that do not create value.

3. Create Flow – PIA Evansville makes value-creating steps occur in tight sequence so that the automated solution will flow smoothly toward the customer.

4. Establish Pull - As flow is introduced, PIA Evansville lets customers pull value from the next upstream activity.

5. Seek Perfection - As value is specified, value streams are identified, wasted steps are removed, and flow and pull are introduced, PIA Evansville begins the process again and continues it until a state of perfection is reached in which perfect value is created with no waste.

PIA Evansville also embraces Kaizen and 5S methodologies. We have a clear focus on achieving measurable results and improving relations with our suppliers and customers to create sustained satisfaction. To help achieve this, we utilize the Scrum Agile Project Management Tool to effectively communicate the progress of every project in a simple, easy-to-follow manner.

So, what does all this mean for you?

  • Increased visibility, space utilization and profitability
  • Resourceful design concepts that lead to operator efficiency and overall adaptability
  • A reduction in production time and elimination of non-value added operations and waste
  • A smarter engineering approach, with practical solutions
