Shay Wilkinson, Team Leader - Process Engineering
Team Leader – Process Engineering, Cook Medical Australia
The Engineering Team at Cook Medical Australia has worked with the Manufacturing Solutions Team at Bosch on a number of occasions. The purpose of our interactions was to utilise the Bosch Team to engage with all relevant internal stakeholders to understand the current process of production processes, reduced manufacturing variation and increased operational agility.
The team at Bosch use a cross functional approach to identify current manufacturing issues and work with the teams on site to develop potential solutions based on the needs of the business. The Bosch team takes time to thoroughly understand the manufacturing process prior to the workshop and are skilled in adapting to internal terminology and culture which encourages the working group to be functioning in an optimal manner.
I have personally been involved in two workshops of this kind, and although the Bosch team are only onsite for a short period of time, I have been impressed by the ability of the Bosch team to engage our production staff to open up about current manufacturing issues and ensure their suggestions and proposals are explored and assessed. They certainly foster a sense of teamwork and shared vision.
We currently have a number of projects which have been generated as a result of these workshops and are planning on working with the Manufacturing Solutions Team on a number of short and long term business solutions.
Manufacturing Engineering Manager, Cochlear
The Manufacturing Engineering Team at Cochlear Limited in Sydney recently worked with the Manufacturing Solutions Team at Bosch to build an automated system that supports the manufacture of Cochlear's latest generation of Cochlear Implant Electrodes. This project demanded the integration of high precision mechanical components, electrical, safety and motion controls, all packaged into a system capable of operating within a clean room used to manufacture Cochlear Implants.
The team at Bosch Australia Manufacturing Solutions quickly actioned this project by appointing a dedicated project manager, providing a single point of contact at Bosch. The communication with Bosch was responsive and effective, with regular project updates, good technical understanding and early identification and mitigation of risks that could have impacted on-time project completion.
This led to the project being delivered well within the set budget and ahead of time. We at Cochlear were impressed with the professional approach and the manner in which this project was handled and communicated during all phases of the project. Bosch understood and readily met Cochlear's requirements of maintaining the highest level of quality standards that Cochlear's Manufacturing System demands.
