Reyco Granning team

Human-centered problem solving supported by digital tools.

The majority of Reyco Granning’s processes on the shop floor are manual processes - from welding, painting, and fabricating, to the assembly and packaging of their complex suspension systems. 

Reyco Granning is dedicated to training its employees in problem-solving. It’s their view that every member of the workforce is equipped with the problem-solving resources to make an impact by continuously improving their manufacturing processes.

Impact by and for the team. 

The most frequently used technique is their Practical Problem Solving Initiative (PPS). This is a simple tool with an 8-step methodology that analyzes, understands, and resolves a problem within a manufacturing process. Most critically - PPS  is used to standardize effective solutions to ensure that processes are continuously improved.

Creating standards with a comprehensive digital platform like SwipeGuide has allowed Reyco Granning to more effectively and efficiently standardize, distribute, and improve the results of PPS initiatives throughout the manufacturing environment, with input from the people on the shop floor.
