Operational Changes Yield Bumper Crop of Supply Chain Improvements

Challenge: A Fortune 100 agricultural-equipment manufacturer had high labor costs and turnover rates. Other issues included: excessive material handling equipment; no inbound scheduling procedure; lack of visibility; excessive trailer pool; the absence of a tracking software. The manufacturer turned to us to resolve these issues.

Solution: We implemented an engineered solution centered on process controls, workflow design, inventory-control processes, and continuous-improvement methodology. We helped the manufacturer select a software program that provides predetermined delivery windows via an online appointment system that also monitors carrier compliance.

Results: The manufacturer has reduced supply chain costs, streamlined processes, and gained visibility to all performance and operational data. Specific results include: • Lower labor costs; • 40 percent less overtime and turnover; • 30 percent less material handling equipment; • 25 percent productivity increase; • 99.8 percent inventory accuracy; • Improved load factors, resulting in fewer shuttles and drivers, and 20 percent less transportation equipment; • 100 percent on-time delivery rate.
