Since the implementation of GSD in their factory in Kunshan, within the Jiangsu Province, China, in January 2015, Sabrina discovered an additional, often hidden, benefit of our process – as a catalyst for change.
The journey their management team has experienced, together with their GSD practitioners, has proved to be the foundation for a transformation of the way they work within their business.
The capabilities and effectiveness of the management have been elevated as the GSD projects made the whole process of change more objective, measurable and enhanced communication within the internal team.
Companies who implement GSD see an increase in their efficiencies and also method improvements. Sabrina soon experienced both of these benefits:
A catalyst for change – Efficiency Increased
Sabrina has seen an elevation of their productivity efficiencies of between 10% and 15%.
Establishing accurate and optimised efficiencies within a garment manufacturing unit ensures more consistent and relevant data for use in fact based costing, line balancing, and production planning, with known capacities.
A catalyst for change – Method Improvement
Since introducing GSD into their business the team of trained and qualified GSD practitioners at Sabrina now see and think in the language of human motion.
This, together with a commitment to Lean Manufacturing Excellence, has enabled Sabrina to identify and reduce waste within their production units, which was present within the methods used before the GSD implementation.
Additionally, through the introduction of detailed method standards, quality is improved as their processes now have increased consistency with less method variability.
