Two Indonesia university students on an internship stayed at Ayase Factory from June 28 through August 25, 2016, studied on the theme “measurement and improvement of cycle time at a wheel production line”. Though Ayase staff members are knowledgeable about such matters from their involvement in daily operations but found it not easy to explain in plain and easy words in English, especially in technical terms. This experience gave our staff a different opportunity to look things from other angles, leading them to find a hint for a new solution method. On August 24, an in-house meeting was organized to present a final report, producing a tangible result for improvement. We are happy if they apply for a position in the Topy Industries Group in the future.
