Jensen Metaltech

Rapid growth at the company led to the creation of a workforce that was experiencing high turnover. There was also a significant increase in rework, related to a combination of the turnover and weak control on manufacturing drawings. Additionally, 15% of the workforce had English as a second language. With supervisors receiving only limited basic supervision training from the Nevada Association of Employers and the rest of the workforce receiving no soft skills training at all, action had to be taken to improve retention and reduce rework costs. Jensen decided that by combining the teamwork elements of implementing a company wide 5S (sort, set in order, shine, standardize, sustain) initiative along with integrating supervisory and coaching skills, improvements could be made in both rework reduction and workforce improvements.

The FOCUS classes, hosted by Manufacture Nevada, gave WMS the ability to put the knowledge they gained into action to create an energy project for its facilities. The proposed solution was the installation of an energy management system (EMS). This would precisely control the lighting use and reduce the waste inherent in their current lighting practices. The EMS will make use of occupancy sensors, photo sensors, and computer-controlled lighting management to help the company realize substantial energy and cost savings.
