Hamilton Bonaduz AG is a global market leader in the development and manufacturing of precise pipetting robots for fluids. These dosing systems consist of a number of modules, which are very reliable but are now considered too expensive to manufacture. In cooperation with the customer’s core team, Zuhlke is aiming to reduce the production costs of a dosing module by at least 30 percent, while at the same time training the customer team so that it can independently carry out similar cost cutting projects for other modules.
A first step will see Zuhlke, together with the customer, assessing the modules and selecting a suitable one for the process analysis, as well as appointing representatives from the company’s R&D, purchasing and production departments to the four person core team. The Zuhlke coach will then instructs the core team in the required methodology and approach for such cost cutting projects.
