Improves competitiveness and productivity through process improvement GST Global
GST China Plant that achieved and maintains the highest fraction defective control index among the GST Global plants. As this outcome was achieved in less than 2 years after plant operation, it means much. At its center is GST China Plant Manager, Dept. Head Gang Young-ho.
While managing local Chinese who lacked technical capability and experience and trying to reinforce technology, Dept. Head Kang Young-ho made consistent process-improvements and so raised productivity. Particularly, in the case of OPW, he did not care much the fraction defective index at the early stage and applied higher standards than in client companies, which became the opportunity to raise the quality consciousness of managers and workers. This resulted in zero fraction defective of the products supplied to the client companies and contributed to raising reliability of the GST China Plant. His passion did not stopped here. He discovered a new idea for the OPW process, out of the fabric making process, and saved the installation and operation cost.
The process improvement of Dept. Head Kang Young-ho to lower the Flat Fabric and OPW fraction defective was even greater because it was done under the circumstance of a newly built plant. Not satisfied with having accomplished the quality index of the Mother Plant, the German Plant, Dept. Head Gang Young-ho tried hard and was able to secure the highest quality index in a short term.
His passion to improve productivity on the basis of fraction defective reduction and operation rate rise will be the driving force for heading to the hundred-year Hyosung over 50 years.
