Manufacturing of electronic boards in small and medium production runs

Interview with Serge Calmard, CEO of SUDELEC

“The 3 pillars of our success:

  • A set of robust machines in new buildings that house our industrial jewel,
  • Dedicated and energetic staff,
  • A high-level industrial organization: following on from “Industrial Performance N ° 1” which was a trigger, we continued with “Ambition PME” and “Lean Manufacturing” from CCI.

Faced with the ramp-up of our activity, new tools were introduced and these are now robust and operational (the Visual Management, the Codir, the workshops 5S, etc ..), but the cement of the success is certainly the “daily 5-minute meeting” (SIM Short Interval Management). Every morning, without exception, staff gather around a visual management chart showing production (quality, logistics, productivity) with indicators in the form of smileys. It is an important collective moment, where we make an inventory, we express ourselves, we act and we react.

At SUDELEC, we have matured, we have learned to analyze with 8D, to clean up with 5S. We want to be an example, an industrial jewel. ”
