  • Problem: An assessment of its business operations yielded inefficient materials sourcing and cycle time processes, in addition to high labor costs
  • Solution: A re-engineering implementation program was put in place in several areas of its manufacturing process, along with an aligned organization design and SAP Systems implementation
  • ROI: Aircraft assembly time reduction of 42%; Reduction in Inventory of 12%; BOM reduction of 16%; Productivity improvement of 16%

Four areas within its operational processes were targeted for improvement, leading to overall cost reductions and more efficient operations across manufacturing, SCM, and HR

  • Structured a 4-pronged implementation program
  • Manufacturing process re-engineering
  • Bill of Materials (BOM) cost reduction
  • Process aligned organization design
  • SAP Systems implementation
