Bill Wilson is a manager with a broad range of experience in manufacturing operations. His background in Industrial Engineering, especially his experience with lean manufacturing, has influenced the work methodology at eMotion Picture Studios. eMotion’s competitive advantage comes from standard operating procedures that improve efficiency and quality.
Bill was a Plant Manager before starting his own management consulting business in 1986. Bill has the rare ability to make complicated subjects easy and fun to learn. Bill used his deep knowledge of statistical process control (SPC) to teach Statistical Thinking at General Motors (Oshawa), Ford Motor Company (Oakville), and Chrysler (Brampton). He also taught their suppliers: Siemens Automotive, Budd Automotive, Fram Filters and others.
Working with automotive companies during this period was demanding. The focus had just turned to better quality at less cost, something we are more familiar with today. It’s achieved by doing it right the first time. SPC teaches the importance of decisions based on data. These lessons resonate in the everyday practices of eMotion Picture Studios.
From the automotive industry, demand for Bill’s expertise spread to the food industry. Bill taught and implemented both Statistical Thinking and Lean Manufacturing for Campbell Soup Company, Gerber Food, Frito-Lay, Imperial Sugar, Rich Foods, Gatorade, Godiva Chocolatier and others.
Bill has implemented self-directed work cells at many businesses – another part of lean thinking at eMotion. Creating teams that are self-contained; cross-trained in all aspects of making the clients' video has real benefits. These include reduced cycle time, improving quality by editing on site at clients’ and reducing the costs of making a video by doing it right the first time.
