Sauder Woodworking: Enhancing the Lean Journey

Sauder Woodworking: Enhancing the Lean Journey

Sauder is North America's leading provider of ready-to-assemble furniture and the nation's 5th largest residential furniture manufacturer. After 7 decades of making home and office furniture, privately held Sauder Woodworking Company has become 1 of the most recognizable furniture brands.

Its key challenges were to increase visibility on execution processes, improve manufacturing flow and efficiency by following a strategic direction for lean

manufacturing, simplify work-order reporting process, manage increased IT requests from shop floor and find manufacturing shop-floor systems that are lean enablers.

Sauder selected SAP because of its ability to deliver a manufacturing performance application in weeks, flexibility to change how shop-floor operators interact with specific processes, built-in integration of multiple, real-time shop-floor and business system data sources and value of extending the SAP® ERP application without incremental training of shop-floor personnel.
