Plano, TX (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
Pinnacle Strategies announced that one of its clients, a manufacturer of electro-automation products for subsea and land-based oil and gas applications, increased output by 50% as a result of implementing Pinnacle Strategies’ Rapid Analysis Bottleneck Improvement Team (RABIT™) process. The backlog of two key products fell by 87.5% and 75%.
Pinnacle Strategies’ challenge was to help the client increase output and reduce the backlog of orders, as the client was only able to reach a seven percent due date performance for its largest customer
The client used Pinnacle Strategies’ RABIT to expose challenges and opportunities. Pinnacle Strategies rapidly delivered the required results by helping the client:
- Shift non-added work elsewhere
- Visualize Capacity
- Stagger spec releases
- Clarify priorities
- Standardize units
- Right-time inventory
As a result, the company was able to increase the proportion of time its design engineers applied to project work from 30% to 90%. The backlog of orders for one product dropped by 87.5%; another product’s backlog fell by 75%. Overall product throughput increased by 50%.
According to one of the customer’s Purchasing Manager, “Everyone knows their own area, but the RABIT contributed to a better understanding of the entire process from spec to finished product. Better knowledge of each other’s responsibilities and challenges contributed to better cooperation and better performance.”
