80/20 Manufacturing

We’ve all heard of the 80/20 rule in business. It states these commonly held truths: 80% of sales come from 20% of key customers; 80% of profits come from 20% of products. Managers also like to say that 80% of the work is done by 20% of employees. Back in 2010, Comtran embraced the 80/20 rule to refocus our Sales and Manufacturing efforts. In addition to maintaining our solid base of commercial cable products, we have balanced our portfolio with a growing array of specialty cable products designed for harsh environments.

In the manufacturing facility, we have created cellular production zones. Each zone is dedicated to lean manufacturing for each specific product type — commercial or specialty cable. This allows us to support those 20% who are our key, high-volume customers, while we still serve our low volume customers. By fine-tuning the plant floor, staff assignments, and standard operating procedures, we are able to better balance and optimize the company’s resources.
