Case Study: Lenovo

Innovation Leader Lenovo Prevents Nearly Half of Production Rework and Gains Approximately $1 Per-Unit Savings through Process Innovation Driven by Instrumental

Lenovo is a leading global designer and manufacturer of laptops, tablets, smart devices, servers, and with their acquisition of Motorola Mobility in 2014, phones. Their persistent commitment to innovation and cutting-edge manufacturing processes culminated in the launch of the Motorola Razr, with its folding screen, ambitious zero-gap hinge, display robustness requirements, and miniaturized design. To bring such an ambitious product to market, Lenovo successfully executed on a variety of production process advancements to their already industry-leading manufacturing practice.

When the Motorola Mobility development team handed off Razr to Lenovo’s manufacturing team for production, Lenovo partnered closely with Instrumental. Instrumental’s holistic data capturing, intelligent AI processing, and real-time reporting powered the advanced practice of continuous optimization at Lenovo, pushing Lenovo even farther ahead of the competition.

Even amidst the industry-wide business continuity challenges caused by COVID-19, Lenovo has been able to achieve yield improvements, scrap reduction, and team productivity gains throughout ramp and production.
