Implementation at Alexandria industries

Great things like QRM take time

As Alexandria Industries continues to evolve, it requires implementation of our QRM principles at all of our locations. We are currently in the process of implementing QRM at many of our facilities. The process of implementation takes time. Our first facility implementation initiated in 2004 and was completed in 2007.

As each facility implements these principles, we anticipate reduced lead time and other dynamic results that will similar, if not greater, then we initially experienced.

An important piece to QRM Implementation

QROC (Quick Response Office Cell) Implementation of QRM is more than just changing the way manufacturing process happens, it also includes our office environment. Our dramatic reduction of lead time is associated with our implementation of QROCs. This is a closed-loop, collocated, multi-functional team responsible for a family of products.

QROC principles:
  • Find new ways of completing a job, with the primary focus on minimizing lead time.
  • Measure the reduction of lead times and make this a main performance measurement.
  • Office cells replace existing departmentalized structure.
  • QROC members have opportunities to bring about change and make it happen.
  • QROC members have authority to make decisions and solve problems.

Please contact Al Fyhrie to learn more about our implementation of QRM. Or better yet, come and take a tour. Seeing firsthand how it has been implemented will give you the opportunity to understand exactly how it works, and ask questions along the way.

"Alexandria Industries has supported us extremely well on the current transfer of our product. I am looking forward to the continued support."
