Interface, Inc., is the world’s largest modular carpet manufacturer. Their facility in West Point, GA. has experienced lost demand due to lack of capacity, overtime expenses, constrained space, and delayed orders. Our team delivered process improvement and capacity expansion recommendations based on a simulation, and an order scheduling decision-support tool. Interface can expect approximately 20% increase in capacity, $2 million in annual savings, and up to 85% reduction in delayed orders.
