“VSS has proven to be catlyst for culture change allowing us to instill more discipline and control in our complex machining environment. We have eliminated 2 separate "production expedite meetings" and the chaos of the past has essentially been eliminated. Our WIP has been reduced by 60%, orders are being released on or near scheduled dates, and production "splits" have been eliminated along with the paperwork nightmare associated with it. Now we can visually see where our bottlenecks are so adjustments can be made, and our people are more engaged with the throughput activity. We had to modify the System somewhat due to the uniqueness of our business, but Dr. Lisa gave us good advice on the way forward to make it work for us. Thanks Dr. Lisa for developing such a robust, yet flexible, approach to controlling our shop and meeting customer demand.”
Jim Wehri, True Position Technologies, Inc.
“We decreased the time it takes to get a job to get thru the shop. Using the visual VSS board gives all the employees a chance to see what is going on.”
“All the Velocity boards are up and running. For the very first time in the history of Bent River we delivered a “new to the world” designed machine in the nanno technology industry ahead of schedule and to budget. We have never done a project of that scope that well before. It only benefited by about half its life under Velocity, and it still made a REAL difference! Thank you!”
“The VSS System has facilitated operational visibility in terms of our WIP levels, throughput, and due date performance. Thanks Dr. Lisa.”

“Dramatic increase in on-time delivery, dramatic reduction in chaos. The shop floor personnel really seem to like the system. Involving the entire work force really improves the quality and quantity of solutions to a given problem.”

“The VSS provided a great way to visually track and organize your work flow, even for the most complex job shops.”
“Velocity Scheduling is an amazing program. It teaches you about your process, helps you find out what are the major issues and focuses on one common goal for everyone, improving flow.”
“Dr. Lisa, Thanks to your program Velocity Scheduling System Gulf has improved Delivery times, reduced rework, improved team work, improved cash flow, and it has really impressed our customers with such a planning system they can actually follow the progress of their job as it progresses threw the shop. The reduction in chaos has to be one of the best benefits to the program. No more putting out fires all the time. The proper planning and scheduling has really improved this aspect of our operation. This would be great for any shop to consider…….as long as it’s not my competition! Thanks again and we are looking forward to the Mafia Offer Program next Month.”
Vint Massimini Gulf Engineering Co. President
“Dr. Lisa has provided us with a flexible shop “Operating System” that has provided many benefits to both our engineering and production departments. Chaos is down; visibility and speed through the shop are up. This allows management to make clearer decisions for both product planning and overall corporate strategy. I would definitely recommend the Velocity Scheduling System to other shops that know that they should be doing better. Dr. Lisa has the experience to show you how.”
“We have seen improvement in many areas while using this Velocity Scheduling System. The most powerful changes brought on from this: Closing jobs completely & having visibility of areas that are sitting and waiting on processing. By utilitizing the board, we have a better understanding of WIP and are able to minimize much of the headache that comes with TOO MUCH WIP. GREAT NEW FOR US ! As the VP of McAllister Tool & Machine, I would recommend this system to any company--large or small. If you ever want to use me as a reference for other companies looking to use this system, I will be more than happy to close the deal for you!”
