Expert team carries the projects safely across the finish line

How can we best bring the knowledge of our skilled employees into play? And at the same time become even more efficient in our production?

These are two challenges that we constantly give ourselves at Hjerno Tool Factory. That is why we have established a so-called expert group consisting of nine employees - both experienced capacities and younger, talented employees - who help us implement the individual projects safely.

“I gather this group of employees every time we start a new project. And based on the group's feedback, we then create a production plan,” explains Production Manager Kristian Jessen Hansen.

Activation of the employees’ knowledge

For him, the project is an attempt to bring some knowledge into play before the project starts. And before any problems arise.

“We need to activate the vast knowledge that we have available as soon as early when we start a new project. This is far more effective than continuously bringing expert knowledge to projects that are already running.”

Not the start of a coffee club

The initiative is an element of Hjerno's overall strategy to standardise production and reduce lead times. And therefore it is also important that the expert group does not end up as a coffee club.

“We have standard procedures for starting up a project. In the expert group, for example, we review only the most complicated tool parts, not the standard parts. From the start we set a route for the individual tool and its tool components, which creates the best imaginable manufacturing process and quality and at the same time it minimises the lead time as much as possible,” Kristian Jessen Hansen concludes.
