Client used the Pinnacle Strategies’ RABIT process to identify the bottleneck, prioritize projects, eliminate distractions, and accelerate output while reducing lead times.

Rapid Analysis Bottleneck Improvement Team

Pinnacle Strategies announced that one of its clients, a leading global provider of technology solutions for the energy industry, has gained a breakthrough $1.5 million increase in throughput as a result of implementing Pinnacle’s Rapid Analysis Bottleneck Improvement Team (RABIT™) process.

Pinnacle Strategies’ challenge was to help the customer keep up with the market demand for their broadly desired and innovatively designed new product. Engineering constraints prevented the client from meeting customer demand, and communication break downs throughout the supply chain meant that production was suffering greatly.

Pinnacle rapidly delivered the required results by helping the client:
-Identify the bottleneck in the process
-Prioritize projects and reduced multi-tasking by focusing on a small number of projects
-Eliminate distractions by stopping all non-value-added activities
-Create metrics for activities that mattered to engineering
-Create a visual management system to monitor workflow and sustain increased productivity

As a result, productivity soared to more than five units/month with a throughput value greater than $1.5 million per month. “The first major success was in bringing the design documentation needed for manufacturing from a start time of 240 days to 110 days,” according to a global manager with the company . As productivity soared, project lead times plummeted; durations for engineering drawings dropped from a high of almost 165 days to a low of less than 85 days. “These results in cycle times were accomplished in six to seven weeks,” says the manager. “Overall, the RABIT process brought structure, methodology and KPI’s for long-term success.”
