Methods Workshop LLC  is pleased to welcome contract manufacturer Integrated Textile Solutions, Inc. (ITS) to its fast-growing and diverse sewn products client list. The producer of military, industrial, and consumer soft goods has recently completed implementation of Quick TruCost (QTC) and Engineered TruCost (ETC)   costing   and engineering solutions at its Salem, Virginia (USA) facilities.

By leveraging the  automated predictive costing tools in QTC, the company is improving response time and accuracy of new customer quote requests. ITS also expects to achieve significant overall productivity increases as they adopt operational best practices based on the predetermined motion/time standards built into ETC.

According to ITS Chief Operating Officer Dan Pittman, “While we were already recognized as a reliable and efficient contractor, we saw an opportunity to capture a greater percentage of re-shoring and other new business opportunities by turning quotes faster and offering the most competitive production costs and service in our market.

The Methods Workshop software gives us the tools we need   to accomplish these goals. As we grow in the use of this software, we will continue to achieve significant productivity and other improvements throughout our operations.”  

“We implemented QTC first as it quickly allowed us to increase accuracy and speed up quoting for    our key products”, continued Pittman. “As we continue to build on our database of product types,    we will soon be able to reduce overall quote response times across most of our product lines. With QTC in place, we are now beginning to use ETC to engineer new methods and establish a fair, non-subjective incentive piecework system for our workforce. Over the coming months, we expect these initiatives to give ITS a strategic price-performance advantage.”

ITS relied on Methods Workshop professionals to accomplish installation and training of the QTC   software in just three days. The two-part process of installing and training on the motion time   measurement   system of ETC required a total of eight days.

“We are pleased with the opportunity to play a role in the exciting advances taking place at ITS”, noted John Stern, President of Methods Workshop. “We applaud their commitment   to   domestic   manufacturing and the steps they are taking to maximize productivity and increase value for their customers. We look forward to a long and mutually rewarding partnership.”
