New Demand-Pull Replenishment system shifts production from “push” to “pull”

Elegant Solutions for Complex Problems

The client's past due orders dropped by 93%.

Pinnacle Strategies today announced that one of its clients, a global manufacturer of aircraft assemblies and components, increased inventory turns by 83% while reducing overtime spending by $2.8 million a year after implementing a comprehensive Pinnacle production management solution, based on Demand-Pull Replenishment principles.

Pinnacle was challenged to help the client’s component manufacturing unit reduce internal shortages and excessive overtime costs. The unit required a comprehensive work scheduling, inventory management, and performance management process overhaul to cut costs and increase service levels.

Pinnacle rapidly delivered the required results by helping the client to:

  • Reduce shortages by replenishing component supplies based on actual consumption (“Demand-Pull Replenishment”)
  • Cut production lead times
  • Provide management and execution with a clear set of execution priorities across the organization
  • Increase throughput using Rapid Analysis Bottleneck Improvement Teams (RABIT™)
  • Manage the process with an objective performance management system

As a result, the client’s internal fill rates improved by 14%, to 99%, while past due orders dropped by 93%.
