Greeley, CO--November 21, 1996--Electronic Fab Technology Corp. (EFTC; Greeley, CO) revealed its new manufacturing paradigm, Asynchronous Process Manufacturing (APM).
The company implemented the process as part of its third-quarter restructuring to focus the company on delivering manufacturing solutions for high-mix products in a high-speed mode. Implementation of APM required a complete relayout of the manufacturing floor, reorganizing workers into process work teams, and revising documentation. The physical moves were completed in Sept., and by the end of Oct. all products flowed asynchronously.
