Production and Logistics Services



MLS-Managed Labor Solutions offers clients the opportunity to increase productivity by reducing waste, minimizing failures (increasing yield) and in many cases, reducing the cost per labor hour.


The cutting has been done!


    Many of our customers have already gone through the task of reducing headcount, stabilizing labor increases and modifying or enhancing equipment. Many times this is not enough. MLS provides additional cost savings via an insourced labor program.

    

    By providing the labor on the line, the supervision and management, the human resource, training and safety functions, MLS delivers a more productive labor force, with reduced turnover in a safe workplace environment. Our customers can redirect their efforts to those value add functions necessary to remain competitive.

  
 
A key component of our program is the engineering brought to the workplace. That is, using our Industrial Engineering assets, MLS utilizes LEAN manufacturing principles and elements of the Six Sigma process to:

  • Define the task
  • Measure the resources required
  • Develop on site Training programs
  • Set goals and measuring programs
  • Evaluate the output
The results are:
  •     Manufacturing capabilities are kept in the United States
  •     Labor costs are stabilized or reduced
  •     Our customers become more competitive
When you hear the term “On Site Management”, from your contractors, normally it refers to an individual who is responsible for insuring headcount. Training, supervision, performance measurement do not fall under this individuals job description. At MLS, we own the entire process from recruiting to output and all areas in between, transaction based or per unit based contracting. At MLS, we have the capability to guarantee output based on a predetermined price. That is, given the responsibility of one or more manufacturing cells, we can deliver a finished unit at a specific agreed upon cost. Your costs become predictable and will follow your manufacturing peaks and valleys.

Typical “insourced” positions include the non core but critical positions so necessary to the manufacturing process. These included but are not limited to:

  • Assembly Workers
  • Forklift Operators
  • Inspectors
  • Kitting Workers
  • Machine Feeders
  • Machine Operators
  • Material Movers
  • Packers
  • PIT Operators
  • Production Helpers
  • Waste Haulers
