The Lean journey starts with #AX2012. Rochester Gauges transformed business with Lean methodology in AX 2012.
Since 1958, Rochester Gauges has manufactured liquid-level gauges for OEMs in the industrial, propane, and aerospace industries. In late 2013, the company converted its entire United States operation to a Lean manufacturing model, completing a journey that began in 2007 with a pilot project on a single line. To aid in its transformation to a Lean organization, the company upgraded its existing manufacturing and financial systems from Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. “We stayed with Microsoft Dynamics AX because AX 2012 has the Lean methodology built in,” explains Bill Battershell, CFO of Rochester Gauges.
