Plano, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2012 -- Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, recently authored a feature article for WTG InSights. The article profiled how Pinnacle Strategies helps manufacturers significantly improve output. According to Cutler, “Frequently in engineering and manufacturing environments, there are an uncontrollable number of projects, yet customers demand immediate completion. Teams of hardworking professionals get so far behind that even the simplest of tasks cannot be completed. Lacking the necessary inputs, work is constantly starting and stopping; communications snafus create more delays, causing project lead times to grow exponentially.
Mark Woeppel, President and CEO of Pinnacle Strategies, said, “These companies need practical experience from a team that knows how to quickly improve the project management process and quantifiably improve process output.”
Twenty percent (20%) more output in two months is rarely promised. RABIT, Rapid Analysis and Bottleneck Improvement Team, is a tool needed by manufacturers when rapidly improved throughput is required. Companies including BP and FMC Technologies have utilized the RABIT methodology quite successfully.
The RABIT Methodology
Woeppel explained, “RABIT is drawn from the company’s own staff. We help recruit appropriate personnel from across our client’s business. Guided by Pinnacle Strategy consultants, the new team starts to apply highly effective new project management skills. Each day manufacturers see practical, concrete improvements in workflow.”
