Functional Reviews across Technologies at Solihull are ‘TIC'ing’ along nicely with teams presenting their great improvement ideas.
We meet one of the first teams to go through the reviews.
Meet the Sticky Wickets
Who’s in the Team Improvement Circle?
The team is made up from Circle Leader Rich Lal, CME Engineer Kevin Barry, Maintenance Technical Leader Marius Cojocaru and Maintenance Associate James Kenny.
How did you come up with the team name?
Our name came from our project being about squeezed glue excess during body production. It is a constant battle to reduce the amount of waste of glue. sTICky Wicket came to mind and also included TIC in the name which was a nice bonus.
What is your project all about?
Our aim was to reduce glue squeeze out on the bonnet cell in BS3 by 90 percent before May 2019. We have managed to achieve this by re-designing the existing, not fit for purpose glue system.
Why do you think TIC is important for the business?
TIC is a great way for employees to be part of a project where they can make a difference. It has a great impact on each individual to develop their skills and team work and also give great satisfaction.
What’s the best thing about TIC?
Having the possibility to create an idea and implement it to help benefit yourself, others and the company.
If your circle was a famous team from a movie or TV series who would you be and why?
The Incredibles – because we were told by numerous people ‘it was impossible to achieve’ but we proved them wrong.
