SPECIAL ACTIVITY

Formed the SJSU MAB (Manufacturing Advisory Board) in 1990. The MAB consisted mainly of Manufacturing Vice Presidents and Plant Managers of Silicon Valley Companies. Many of the companies in Silicon Valley such as Intel, AMD, Varian, NUMMI, Cirrus Logic, IBM, LMSC, MTC, Advanced Linear Devices, Amdahl, HP, RamTek, Varian, Solectron, FEI Microwave, Applied Materials, Raychem, ESL, MIPS Computers, ALD, CRX Corporation, VLSI Technology, CADENCE, SynOptics, Sun Microsystems, Electroglas, and Systems Industries were represented on the board. The MAB members provided excellent feedback to the department on curriculum and other issues.

DIP (DIFFERENCE-IN-PAY) LEAVE, NUMMI, FALL SEMESTER, 1997

Spent the 1997 Fall Semester at NUMMI (New United Manufacturing Motor), Inc. on DIP leave. I was the first professor to be allowed to spend a semester at NUMMI. NUMMI is a joint venture of GM and Toyota managed by Toyota, Inc. This was an excellent opportunity to observe the TPS (Toyota Production System) in practice. The TPS with its emphasis on Kaizen (Continuous Improvement), JIT (Just-In-Time) delivery and manager-worker cooperation is being imitated in many industries and services (including hospitals).

During my DIP Leave at NUMMI, two new car models (the Toyota Corolla and the Chevrolet Prism) were introduced. I had the opportunity to closely observe the problems associated with the introduction of these two new cars. Some of these problems included:

  • Ramping up production to reach full capacity within a certain time.
  • Supply chain management problems where suppliers were going through the same ramp up problems NUMMI was going through. These included delays in arrival of components, parts and materials.
  • Visiting local suppliers to see how they are handling the JIT deliveries to NUMMI.
  • Participating in the daily "Market Basket " and "Quality" Meetings.

The "Market Basket Meeting" was held at 10:30 A.M daily. This was an excellent opportunity to closely observe the problems associated with introduction of new products and how NUMMI management was dealing with it. The "Quality Meetings" were held at 3:30 P.M. daily (after the morning shift was over). It was an excellent opportunity to observe how NUMMI management and employees track quality problems, diagnose them, take corrective action and monitor the results. For a company that won many quality awards, a best plant in the U.S. award and is the most productive unionized auto plant in North America, this was an excellent opportunity to observe how management track and improve quality. During my DIP Leave at NUMMI, I authored three reports:

  • Reflections on the introduction of the passenger cars at NUMMI. This report compared what they planned with what actually happened and what should they do next time when they introduce a new product.
  • Evaluation of problem suppliers. I developed a matrix to track problem suppliers. As a result of may evaluation, we were able to rank problem suppliers in order to concentrate their efforts on those with the most problems.
  • Evaluation of the problems associated with the application of Kanban. I developed a table to track the problems with NUMMI's Kanban process.
