parts are sent to the dowel and borer,
also barcoded, and finished.
Yousif said he also takes advantage
of User Created Standards, or UCS,
ting preferences and best practices. For
Yousif, UCS come in handy for his toe-
kick assembly, which he prefers to have
cut to a specified company standard.
In addition to improved quality control, the software and CNC technology
have also reduced the turnaround
time. Whereas before it took 1. 5 hours
per cabinet, “right now, we average
about 20 minutes for a completed cabinet — and that’s wrapped and ready to
go out the door,” he said.
The technology investment has also
had an impact outside the work environment, Yousif added. “What is your
time worth? What are you worth? A lot
of guys pay expensive overhead, but
don’t pay themselves,” he said. “My hob-bies are fishing and golf; my work is not
my hobby. I love what I do, and with the
help of automation and great employees, I can watch my son grow up.” ;
