A local auto shop has been lacking in efficiency for years and has decided to ramp-up their procedures and processes to help eliminate waste and improve productivity
. In order to do this, they have enlisted the help of TIMWOOD. When implementing TIMWOOD, it is not necessary to engage each component if it is not specific or related to your business. Nonetheless, the auto shop will make the right choices based upon their business needs.
First, the auto shop chooses to eliminate some items related to inventory and rid themselves of extra office supplies and auto parts that are not necessary for the daily functioning of the business. By doing this, it frees up space and also makes the work environment less cluttered and more efficient.
Second, the business also eliminates some over-processing issues by reducing the redundancy of printing and storing copies of previous business transactions and invoices. Instead of saving these records and printing them and filing them away, they decide to implement a paperless system which allows them to simply look up their archived transactions and invoices electronically to eliminate the need for printing extra copies.
Lastly, the auto shop also cuts down on defects such as not having the proper tools needed for the job. The needed tools should be available for use and in an easy to access area at all times during business hours.
