dc.description.abstractThe primary goal for this project was to help expand the existing capability of Sikorsky's main rotor blade business from raw material (titanium) through final assembly. The project helped to facilitate the ongoing lean transformation as the factory makes the journey to single-piece flow. During the internship, monthly kaizen events were used to help focus efforts on different areas of the value stream. These activities resulted in changes in the following areas: decrease in cycle times and lead times, reduction in inventory, procedural changes, and a future plan to physically change the factory floor to improve flow.en_US
