But more importantly, the company’s confidence in the data and what they could do with it increased significantly. With more time and more reliable data, they could solve problems faster, and monitor the impact of their solutions much more effectively.
The Manager explained that GainSeeker is “a primary tool for us to leverage, figure out when we go to solve problems.”
Transformation Leads to Supply Chain Stability
Deploying GainSeeker provided a foundation for a culture shift that turned the company from a reactionary organization into a proactive company. This culture shift was supported by extensive training and coaching in problem solving methodologies, built on actionable data from GainSeeker Suite.
This shift led to many benefits such as:
- 90% reduction in scrap and rework
- Effort hours to capture, manage, and analyze data reduced from 60 to 70 hours down to less than 5
- Reduction in escaped pieces from 8% down to 0.5%
The Company has seen a major transformation in the way they are collecting and using data. They’ve shifted from being reactionary to being proactive. “We’re trying to be anticipatory,” the Director explained. “We want our team to be in a position that when their boss asks them for something, they’ve already got it.”
This transformation has already paid the company significant financial and personal benefits. The team expects GainSeeker will enable transformation well into the future.
