DIC Compounds Malaysia (DCM) recently visited DELL’s manufacturing facility and gained key insights into their streamlined operations. The presentation covered crucial aspects like DELL’s global manufacturing reach, APCC-2 Manufacturing & Operations, and specifics of production processes, such as Rack Integration. 

One standout aspect was DELL’s emphasis on staff development including “TELL DELL” allowing employees to channel feedback and ideas and foster a culture of open communication. Furthermore, the company has a unique mechanism to convert staff improvements or savings into actual spending budgets, which are then used to reward employees.

On the operational front, DELL showcased an effective 5S system, maintaining a comfortable working environment. Real-time displays for temperature, CO2, and dust levels highlighted their safety and environmental control efforts. 

In warehouse management, DELL stood out with well-planned loading bays, avoiding sunlight exposure and air contamination. The expansive premises with ample parking signified DELL’s growth vision. 

However, no system is without areas for improvement, like the need to focus on safety measures like reducing forklift speed and enhancing signage. Considering the sensitivity of DELL’s products, alternative methods to water sprinklers were suggested.
