Case Study – Perpetual Enterprises Case Study

By admin| 1 Min Read | April 5, 2024

Perpetual Enterprises is a contract metal fabricator and institutional furniture manufacturer located in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. They offer a wide range of custom capabilities, as well as standard product offerings such as tables, storage towers, free standing desks, workstations, open shelving, and seating. Their custom capabilities include manual processing as required by a given job. When the volume of a particular customer part family increased to the level that the required sanding of parts required 2 full time operators including overtime and weekends, management knew there had to be a better way. Additionally, completing the repetitive motion required by the manual sanding task daily took a big physical toll on the operators. Assigning more of their limited staff, including management, to the manual random orbital sanding task was simply not sustainable.
