ATI Begins facility reorganization
In order to increase efficiency, Assembly Technologies has decided to reorganize its 30,000 facility. Moving away from centralized shipping/receiving, materials will now flow in one side of the facility and out of the other. This will allow for seamless transition of materials and WIP inventory. Customers can expect a decrease in production times and increased sense of traceability. In addition, ATI’s goals are to maximize the space available for production and reduce non-value added space. The EMS industry is constantly changing. Companies are moving away from mega production facilities. SMT lines have reduced in size and manufacturing requires much less space than a decade ago. With proper reorganization and improvement; ATI’s facility will be able to handle a diverse range of volumes without the need for further expansion.
