Clover Wireless is a global supply chain solutions partner for mobile device carriers, manufacturers, retailers, insurance providers and enterprise businesses. In collaboration with Centro de Enseñanza Técnica y Superior (CETYS) University, the HMC team supported the launch of four, new refurbishment lines of NETGEAR products in their Mexicali manufacturing facility. To provide a low-cost and low-impact method of implementing potential changes to these lines, the HMC Global Clinic team created a continuous improvement tool that minimizes a production line’s operating cost.
