Shopfloor Support LLC, developer of next-generation shop floor control solutions for soft goods and other discrete manufacturers, has announced that Hyperlite Mountain Gear, a leader in outdoor gear, has increased production efficiency and process visibility with the implementation of the Shopfloor Eye solution in its US-based manufacturing operations.

Hyperlite Mountain Gear, Inc. has successfully adopted Shopfloor Eye real-time shop floor control solution at its Biddeford, Maine (USA) facility. After using the wireless production management software for just 3 months, the leader in ultralight packs, tents, shelters and other outdoor adventure gear reports measurable gains in overall productivity and increased process visibility and control.

To rapidly implement and prove the benefits of the new system, Schafer, a veteran of global manufacturing, set up a new team-based “Pack Express Line” manufacturing cell. While workers are not paid on industry-traditional piecework incentives, engineering studies were conducted to determine efficient production standards for each of the many steps involved in producing backpacks. Based on the tremendous results achieved, Hyperlite Mountain Gear is making plans to deploy the Shopfloor system across its entire production operation next month.

Shopfloor Support is further developing its Simple BOM capabilities to enable Hyperlite Mountain Gear pre-production teams to use their tablets to scan work orders and more accurately pick all components (often upwards of 60 parts) needed to produce packs. Shopfloor also plans to develop software tools to eliminate parts picking errors by verifying precise bins and shelf locations, and to manage work-in-process collection areas where specific products can be staged for specific operations or processing.

Hyperlite Mountain Gear director of operations John Schafer said, “While we have always been committed to continuous improvement, the Shopfloor system gives us the opportunity to have a “new conversation” on our shop floor; one that is based on coaching around real-time production information, visibility, and profitability. We have quickly found that this system empowers us to consistently meet production standards, balance our production line, and guarantee maximum efficiency.” (GK)
