That said, we are still processing jobs like its 30 years ago. We have pretty nice equipment and pretty new equipment. Some of the guys are totally open to change or at least trying something, others its nope, this is the way we run it and this is they it needs to be. While I do understand that they do know the jobs better than me, some ways they go about stuff is just horribly bad. How can approach these guys that wont change to try new things or show that yes this works but there could be better?
Too vague to really provide you with any valuable insight. What are you trying to change?
No need to give out specifics since it sounds like you want to keep things discreet, but generally what are we talking about here?
Cycle time reduction? Tool life improvement? Higher density fixturing? Lights out operation?
