Tier 1 Automotive Tool Transfer Program

Tier 1 Automotive Tool Transfer Program

Project Challenge:

To execute a large international transfer project to multiple manufacturing locations.

Description / Solution:

A large Tier 1 automotive supplier contacted Accudyn with a significant challenge: they needed to move a number of tools from a troubled supplier and needed a company that could manage this large project that included moving tools to plants in multiple countries on a tight timeline.

Using our disciplined Program Management Process, we managed all aspects of this tooling transfer project and successfully moved this business without interrupting our customer’s production. With all tooling evaluations completed based on program priorities, the Accudyn Team was able to sample and qualify all tools in both our Erie, Pennsylvania Plant and in our Chihuahua, Mexico Plant within the established timing. Frequent and detailed communication with the customer ensured all issues were addressed and gave the customer team confidence that the major milestones would be reached.

The customer benefited from a smooth transition of their production to a new supplier with minimal issues. We provided tooling expertise to quickly evaluate molds and make recommendations, materials expertise, detail-oriented program management and frequent communication of status assuring that everything was being addressed and all issues were being resolved.

If you have an important transfer project that needs the same level of detailed attention; contact Accudyn, we’d be glad to help.
