Winning Team - Group 5

What can you learn from 25 straws, 25” of masking tape and a raw egg?  At JCS, we put all the Engineering brainpower to work, along with a dash of Fabrication, and stirred it up with a pinch of Finance and Purchasing for good measure to meet the challenge.

A continuous standardizing in-line blending solution for the spirits industry

Only JCS offers you a continuous standardizing, in-line blending solution that guarantees your finished product blend to be the same every time. It is a method of mixing products together through multiple streams of flow into a common header. All the ingredients are metered simultaneously at accurately controlled rates using digital inline blending and the JCS Material Balance technology to assure that the product is always within specification. You never need to “correct” post-production with JCS, because we meter every step of the blending process and immediately correct any variances in real time.

Achieving success in stages

The strongest companies in any industry achieve their objectives by defining the “criteria for success” before initiating any project or endeavor. Many companies define “success” in terms of scope, schedule, budget, and quality. Others define it in terms of “significant value” for the organization upon project completion.  At JCS, we respect both definitions recognizing that “significant value” may include: lower cost of ownership, reduced downtime, maximized product yields, and/or increased efficiencies.  Proper control of project scope, schedule, budget, and quality are key in achieving the desired significant value.

Championing a zero-defect standard in an ever-changing process

 

To continue providing world class products and services to clients, the executive management group set a company-wide zero-defect standard. The core objective of this initiative is to achieve a zero-defect execution of skid design, fabrication, delivery, and commissioning on all projects at  JCS Process & Control Systems.   At the beginning, the goal seemed lofty, and if you’re a skeptic, it might seem unattainable due to the level of customization that JCS systems have. Usually, the systems are comprised of over 500+ components, all having to function together to produce multiple variations of products with very specific requirements and parameters.  There is nothing but the certainty of error to occur during a project life-cycle with these odds.  So how do we do it?  That is a question that I asked over-and-over again to set the zero-defect internal mindset at JCS.
