AMT helps manufacturing companies put the processes in place to achieve higher levels of quality that can lead to reduced costs and increased customer approval. Quality certifications are available specific to the industry a company works. Many large corporate buyers require their suppliers maintain current certifications. Manufacturers who are certified, have a greater opportunity to gain new sales and attract new buyers. AMT has successfully completed hundreds of Quality Management System projects and can assist you with multiple quality standards including ISO 9000, ISO 13485, ISO 14000, TS 16949, AS 9100, cGMP.

Enterprise-wide lean methodologies provide a customizable, measurable, and proven framework that transforms your company into a sustainable Lean Enterprise. Lean thinking, incorporated in your business strategy, is the foundation of a high-performance enterprise. Lean eliminates waste and provides manufacturers with the biggest opportunity for immediate bottom-line improvement. AMT can assist you in strategic and policy deployment activities to ensure successful planning and execution. Improvement and Coaching activities include Value Stream Mapping, Toyota Kata, 5S and Workplace Organization, Kanban/Pull Systems, Flow Manufacturing, Set-up Reduction, Standardized Work, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), and Production, Preparation, Process (3P).

Improving the effectiveness of business processes, both operational and transactional is often challenging. Many organizations resort to a “firefighting” method to solve day-to-day issues as needs arise. Our Six Sigma training and consulting services are a proven way to help organizations combat these problems by eliminating defective processes and identifying the underlying causes. AMT can also help you create an in-house capability by training and certifying your people as Yellow, Green or Black Belts in Six Sigma.

Facility layout and design is an important component of a business’s overall operations, both in terms of maximizing the effectiveness of the production process and meeting the needs of employees.

AMT’s consultants help you leverage the right tools and training to better utilize your space.

TWI recognizes that supervisors and leaders have five basic needs to be effective. Two of these needs are Knowledge of the Work and Knowledge of Responsibilities. These are unique to each company and/or industry and are therefore provided locally. Supervisors also need Skills in order to perform within their role, regardless of their industry. These skills are provided by TWI as follows: Skill in Instruction, Skill in Leading, and Skill in Improving Methods.

TWI Series includes:

  • Job Relations Training (JR) teaches supervisors how to build positive employee relations, increase cooperation and motivation, and effectively resolve conflicts. The course emphasizes that people must be treated as individuals to provide a foundation for developing and maintaining good relations to prevent problems from arising. It also teaches supervisors to handle problems that do arise by gathering and weighing facts before taking action, and then to check results to evaluate whether the action helped production.
  • Job Instruction Training (JI) teaches supervisors how to quickly train employees to do a job correctly, safely, and conscientiously. The objective of the course is to help supervisors develop a well-trained workforce: have less scrap, rework, and rejects; have fewer accidents; and have less tool and equipment damage. The method emphasizes preparing the operator to learn, giving a proper demonstration while identifying the Important Steps and the Key Points of the job, having the operator perform a trial run, and tapering off coaching while continuing to follow up.
  • Job Methods Training (JM) teaches supervisors how to improve the way jobs are done. The aim of the program is to help produce greater quantities of quality products in less time by making the best use of the manpower, machines, and materials now available. To do that, supervisors are taught to break down jobs into their constituent operations, to question each of these details (why? what? where? when? who? how?), to develop the new method by eliminating, combining, rearranging, and simplifying these details, and to apply the new method selling it to everyone involved.
