Owens-Illinois Unit Chooses Lead Time Technology to Spur Process Improvements

Lead Time Technology says that the North American division of glass container manufacturer Owens-Illinois has named it to lead its supply chain process improvement initiatives and to provide software tools to optimize forecasting, production, distribution, and inventory management.

The decision was reportedly based on the successful implementation of a Lead Time system pilot supporting one segment of the O-I business since early 2007.

"Lead Time Technology has not only implemented decision support technology to enable our people to improve business results, but they  have also enabled the change management process to win support across the whole organization," says James Nordmeyer, O-I North American vice president and director of logistics and service.

Given the successful results from the pilot implementation, O-I has selected Lead Time Technology to expand the implementation of its tools and Lean Six Sigma process improvement services to the remaining O-I North American segments.
