The client was experiencing intense growth while managing through a merger and the implementation of a new ERP system. Due to staffing challenges and underdeveloped supply chain processes, the company was struggling to meet product demands.  The existence of manual processes only further complicated the efficiency of operations.


Our team worked closely with the client to understand their growth potential as well as their current day-to-day challenges. Utilizing the information gained from our on-site experience and data collected from the client, our evaluation phase uncovered several performance improvement opportunities to level-load the business in the short term and create sustainable scalability in the long term by:

  • Optimizing testing and QC strategies to reduce lead time while maintaining high quality standards
  • Increasing manufacturing capacity by removing bottlenecks
  • Increasing overall productivity with more effective planning and aligned organizational metrics
  • Designing future state processes for assortment optimization and Sales & Operations planning

Value Created

As a result of this initiative, our client enjoyed both immediate and long-term financial and strategic benefits:

  • Ability to increase annual revenue by $3.3M as a result of increased manufacturing capacity
  • Reduction of $1.1M in working capital spend based on reduction in excess inventory holdings
  • Cost savings of $2.2M based on reduced scrap and ability to clear order backlogs
  • Reduced manufacturing cycle time by an average of 2.5 days across all production lines
