Tour: ABB’s Supply Chain Operations with ODW Logistics

photo-3 On November 20, 2014, a group of more than 30 supply chain professionals and students took a tour of ABB’s Low Voltage Drives production facility, featuring inbound to production, assembly and finished product Supply Chain. The tour began at ODW Logistics (Waukesha, WI) and concluded at ABB’s facilities in New Berlin, WI. Participants were treated to a true demonstration of…

  • LEAN manufacturing and state of the industry technology;
  • Inbound materials management,
  • Four-hour Kanban fulfillment to ABB’s production line, final assembly and shipment of ABB’s product,

… all supported by real-time visibility: delivering the right material to the right place at the right time.
Supply chain leaders from both ABB and ODW also shared information on career opportunities at their respective companies, making the event particularly valuable to students seeking internships and full-time employment as supply chain professionals.
