AIRBUS Recognizes Alestis Trajectory with the BEST PERFORMER Award
Last April, the award ceremony held annually by Airbus in the framework of SQIP Day (Supply Chain Quality & Improvement Program) took place, a day when it recognizes the work carried out by its suppliers over a year.
In this edition, our client has recognized Alestis’s excellent trajectory as the main supplier of aero structures at an international level within its supply chain. This prize is added to the one we received 2 years ago in the Best-Improver category.
At the express request of Airbus, this year Alestis presented, together with Miguel Monzón and Miguel Gómez, the Gemba SQIP project, in which all areas of the Company have been involved. In addition, Diego García Galán, Director of Operations,; Carlos Domínguez, Director of Programs and Manuel Alcázar, Quality Director attended on behalf of Management.
The SQIP program has been implemented through four lines of action or streams Quality Enhancement, Integrated Manufacturing, Supplier Integration and Value Creation, and the respective managers show us the details of its execution:
Integrated Manufacturing Flow
With the aim of improving delivery performance, Raúl Fernández explains: "The project has been managed through two basic pillars: the first one, achieving integrated planning throughout the entire Company and the second, disengaging the production plan from Alestis’s delivery plan." In addition, he adds that with the development of this stream, very important milestones have been achieved, such as the development of the logistics platform.
Rafael Ortiz has been in charge of leading the development and improvement of the Supply Chain management in our Company: "We started from a situation in which there was much to do and we started by defining projects such as the creation of a standardized way of evaluation by means of load/capacity and IPCA to our suppliers, internal control panel management projects, chemical management projects, etc ... Thanks to the project launching we have managed to consolidate the supply chain management, improve and achieve better performance that ensures the availability of material that we can manufacture and deliver to the client in an effective way. I'm very proud of everyone."
This stream consists of the creation of Assessment based on tools and systems that enable cross-evaluation of the AMES maturity level of the different MFTs of the Company, as well as facilitate the following steps to consolidate AMES implementation. Juan Esteban Gómez, project coleader with Javier Alonso, highlights "the magnificent work carried out by the entire Company, from the MFT, through the natural work groups, Steering Committee and other functions at the Company". For his part, Javier Alonso highlights: "the project success has been possible thanks to people’s involvement and the transformation of the work method towards a preventive and anticipatory mentality".
It includes the "Value Generation Projects" that make us ensure the viability of the Company over time.
Puerto Romero, leader of the stream that encompasses the projects for generating value for the Company, explains its function: "We have been selecting the most relevant projects, those aimed at improvement in the programs and with objectives associated to addressing price reduction requirements for the coming years. The stream success lies in the MFTs and participating leaders of each of the projects represented therein ".
Congratulations to all the team for the great job that has been done! We have achieved it!
