Pinnacle Strategies Helps Machine Shop Increase Production Sixty Percent Without Adding Equipment or Labor
Plano, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2013 -- Recently Pinnacle Strategies shared how the RABIT process rapidly reveals and unclogs production bottlenecks, reduces overtime. Mark Woeppel, President & CEO of the company said, “We provide elegant solutions for complex problems and RABIT is a proven methodology that delivers significant results, really fast, where other methods fail.”
Pinnacle Strategies (http://pinnacle-strategies.com) shared how its client, Houston, TX-based Reliable Machinist Corporation (RMC), increased its productivity by 60% in just three months following a Rapid Analysis Bottleneck Improvement Team (RABIT) operations assessment. RMC, which provides precision machining services to the oil and gas industry, achieved the production increase while simultaneously eliminating overtime costs.
Pinnacle was challenged to help RMC meet dramatically higher demand from its biggest customer - without adding machines or workers. At that time, their customer needed 160 units per month. However, even with expensive overtime, the company was only able to deliver 100 units. Without a major change in its production line, RMC would be unable to deliver the requirement – resulting a very unhappy customer and loss of market share.
Woeppel said, “We applied the RABIT process to RMC’s shop floor and rapidly eliminated non-value added activities, unclogged the bottleneck, and accelerated the workflow.”
Pinnacle rapidly delivered the required results by helping the client to:
- Reprioritize its production line with a “proactive scheduling” approach
- Focus efforts on the activities that mattered most, while reducing non-value added work
- Manage the process with an objective visual performance management system
