Draexlmaier / BMW components plant – Duncan, South Carolina


Draexlmaier’s South Carolina plant produces a wide variety of components for luxury automotive models – included among those are the dashboards for BMW.   With limited available floor space at the Duncan plant, Draaexlmaier sought a way to improve process efficiency and eliminate frequent disruptions caused by mismatched, poorly sequenced inputs – all without needing to acquire additional floor space. They reached out to Facility Functions for assistance where we re-designed an improved production line flow process and added a two-level staging and return accumulator area, that together virtually eliminated production disruptions.
