Sawbones offers customizable medical education training products for a wide range of uses. Whether customers need a layman's model for patient education, an elaborate orthopaedic display to teach students, or options for veterinary training, Sawbones has a solution. In many cases, their models can be customized for specific purposes, though often, professionals find their designs are exactly what they need. The company, headquartered on Vashon Island, has over 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space and provides Sawbones products to customers all over the world.

Their stricter quality requirement imply an increased need to mistake-proof manual assembly processes on the assembly line. Our RetroActivity platform can assist them in three ways:

1. Enforcing compliance to a clearly defined Bill of Process.

2. Empowering lean engineers by providing them with continuous time and motion studies which facilitate root cause analysis and error tracing.

3. Providing data-driven training programs for operators that emphasize common errors.
