In the competitive landscape of automotive manufacturing, success hinges on not only meeting customer demands but also maximizing operational efficiency. At POWERS, we recently partnered with a Tier 1 automotive manufacturer specializing in blow and injection mold parts, a company that boasts a rich history as a key player in the industry.
Established in 2005, this manufacturer has served as an onsite supplier for some of the world’s largest car manufacturers, earning recognition for its dedication to supplier diversity and its commitment to fostering inclusive environments that stimulate innovation. However, even seasoned industry leaders are not immune to the challenges that can disrupt their operations.
This case study delves into the journey of a company that, despite its pedigree, was confronted with a series of operational obstacles that threatened its profitability. The fluctuations in demand, labor issues, and pandemic-induced supply chain disruptions had a significant impact, leading to financial losses. Our client sought our expertise at POWERS to navigate these treacherous waters to optimize operational performance to meet actual capacity, enhance customer satisfaction, and drastically reduce excess overtime.
The outcome of this partnership was nothing short of successful. By collaborating with POWERS, our client managed to accelerate its performance to unprecedented levels. Through a strategic approach and tailored solutions, they achieved a remarkable 30% boost in productivity, an impressive 80% improvement in on-time-in-full (OTIF) metrics, and a staggering 87% reduction in overtime.
