Automotive

The Productivity Team’s roots are established in the Detroit Metropolitan area. Our first client was Ford Motor Company back in 2005. Since then we have expanded our footprint to provide Manufacturing Engineering support to the domestic big three, European, and Asian Automotive OEMs.

The scope of our work has included:
  • Throughput optimization
  • Direct & indirect labor reduction
  • Development of time standards & work instructions
  • Increasing first time through quality
  • Production plant design, layout & implementation
  • Tooling, fixture and workstation design
  • Supplier development
  • Material handling strategies

Automotive Suppliers

With our roots in supporting Automotive OEMs, it was a natural step to provide Manufacturing Engineering services to Automotive Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers. The move into the supplier arena was quick to grow because of our already expert knowledge of automotive manufacturing and assembly processes. Another key reason for the growth of this sector, for TPT, is our services being requested by the Automotive OEMs to help their troubled suppliers in the form of Supplier Quality Development (SQD) guidance and support.

Aerospace

Aerospace processes require Manufacturing Engineers with experience in low volume and high SKU operations. Although core competencies in Lean methodologies are universal to any manufacturing environment, materials and material handling strategies are very different. Having experienced resources that have worked on several Aerospace programs allows our engineers to provide value from day one.

  • Plant layout and implementation
  • Throughput optimization
  • Material handling systems
  • Work standardization
  • Supplier development
  • Manpower planning and scheduling
