This month John Halstead provides a summary look at the often overlooked but fundamental relationship between work in process inventory (WIP), cycle time, and throughput (or “touch time”). Some collision centers have challenges getting work TO the door; others have challenges getting work OUT the door. If a shop is capacity challenged, do they need to expand? Or is there a way to drive more work through the facility and out the door? John will explain how reducing a shop’s WIP will positively impact its cycle time and throughput.
