Synechron works for customer who is leading manufacturer of automotive navigation
system. An automotive navigation system is a satellite navigation system designed for use in
automobiles. MEXMOMA project is presently running at an average run rate of 107 Min/Km to
95 Min/Km, which is running at 70% efficiency against the customer rate of 75 Min/Km. The
objectives of the project are to Improve the current production rate from average 107 Min/Km to
average 95 Min/Km. To increase financial gains and the customer satisfaction due to increased
efficiency and more accurate map data to increase the market share and scalability. The
methodology implemented here to address the issue is DMAIC methodology to increase the
productivity and accuracy of the project. And the results of this project are production run rate
was improved from 107 Min/Km to 94.07 Min/Km, resulting efficiency improvement from 70%
to 80%, i.e., 10% improvement. Cost Benefit: 10% efficiency improvement has leaded to cast
saving of $ 37,832, two engineers for this year and received customer feedback 7/7 with
appreciation on the improvements done on the project.
