Rockwell Collins Avionics and Communications Division - Cedar Rapids, IA
An excellent example of how to make a team environment work to produce outstanding results is exemplified in this team's success. Their challenge was to eliminate ozone depleting substances from production processes and implement alternative materials and methods without impacting product quality or customer delivery performance.
Working together efficiently and effectively enabled the team to overcome obstacles and solve problems. The results have been many. Products manufactured for our customers are in compliance with EPA regulations, and their has been a substantial reduction in chemical supply and disposal costs. Documents have been updated, audits conducted, and process conversions were completed by the federally mandated date, with zero production downtime.
This cross-functional team, working closely with many material and equipment suppliers, accomplished major factory and production process conversions. This commitment to the environment continues for the future. The outcomes have benefitted and will continue to benefit the customer, the company, and the environment.
