The Ohio State University Study
A New Benchmark for Institutional Efficiency
In 2009, The Ohio State University equipped 18 maintenance workers with Mobile-Shop professional maintenance systems. For six months, these maintenance professionals were observed performing their duties in order to evaluate what impact, if any, the Mobile-Shop System (MSS) would have on productivity.
The University of Ohio reported that the Mobile Shop System made a definite impact in terms of not only continuity and quality of work, but employee satisfaction as well.

Putting Lean Six Sigma and 5s Principles to Work
The Ohio State University’s study explores the many ways that the Mobile-Shop System uses Lean Six Sigma and 5s workplace efficiency principles to work smarter and save valuable resources.
Lean Six Sigma methodologies aim to increase performance by effectively eliminating a variety of waste that takes place in the workplace, ranging from waiting and transportation to inventory and downtime. When combined with 5S principles focused on ensuring that every worker has the right tool for the job at all times, the Mobile-Shop system is engineered for maximum efficiency. This was proven by The Ohio State University’s study, which demonstrates in detail how the Mobile Shop System applies these valuable practices to realize a remarkable productivity increase, per employee.
Tangible Improvements experienced at The Ohio State University:

Supporting Efficiency for Every Task
How Mobile-Shop Combines Innovation and Productivity
Here at Mobile-Shop, we take quality and satisfaction seriously.
You might think, “Sure you do, every company says that!” but our approach goes further than lip-service. With our comprehensive warranty, replacing a damaged latch or wheel-brake is just another part of good customer service. But after replacing a particular customer’s wheels on multiple occasions, we began to wonder, “What’s going on here?” So we reached out to the customer, who happens to be a higher-education institution. Their answer, “We’re working on 1,000 pound motors”.
Instead of sending another set of wheels, we went back to the drawing board and tasked our lead engineer with a single goal: “The PM Cart needs to be able to hold 1,000 pounds.” So that’s what he did. Before long, our engineering team had designed a new wheel that could withstand at least 1,000 pounds – making the Mobile-Shop tool cart an even more versatile solution for industries everywhere, whether a customer uses the PM cart’s solid surface for a computer, a table-saw, or a thousand-pound motor.
Our goal is to make your maintenance lives easier. Your Feedback Counts.With the Mobile-Shop System, satisfaction and innovation go hand-in-hand. Contact us today with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
Bringing Greater Professionalism and Efficiency to Property Management
How Mobile-Shop Transformed Maintenance for Brentwood Townhomes
For maintenance departments in many industries, the impact of one (or many) of our Mobile-Shop Carts is easy to see in how much more a maintenance crew can get done. While CEO’s and CFO’s always notice this change, the consumer may not. For multi-home properties and property management companies, the impact goes even further.
For Brentwood Townhomes of Goose Creek, South Carolina, the Mobile-Shop System did more than empower maintenance workers to accomplish more with their time. On top of efficiency, the company’s Mobile-Shop Carts also helped the company present a more professional and organized image.
