Situation:

The management team of a mid-sized company determined that the custom manufacturing process was not aligned with best practice or company goals.

  • Costing and pricing processes were not adequate
  • The RACI matrix was misaligned, leading to delays in process
  • The tools used to generate specifications and proposals did not include the details needed to make informed decisions

Process:

Kineticos performed a full internal review of costs, pricing, people, systems, and processes. This was accomplished through in-person interviews, analysis of process management tools, inventory and cost models, and productivity and quality metrics.

Outcome:

Client increased margins of products by 20% to 30% without jeopardizing client relationships. We also helped reduce the hands-on time for generating specifications and proposals by 50% per proposal. This lead to improved decision making and streamlined processes from the specification stage through product delivery.
