On-Time Delivery through organizational alignment

#CaseStudyVoltarion | Due to a substantial increase in customer orders, our client – a Bus manufacturer – was facing a major growth opportunity.

To make sure they would seize it, all internal teams had to be mobilized towards a common goal: the On-Time Delivery (OTD).

For that, #Voltarion implemented a successful Project Management Office (PMO) structure and achieved several tangible results.

  • Reduction of TAKT time in the production line.
  • On-Time Delivery for its main customers.
  • Management tools to control the company’s Value Chain.
  • Strong alignment and commitment between all internal stakeholders.
  • New PMO team trained and in place for post-project activities.

Our customer was facing a major growth opportunity for the period 2018-2020 due a substantial increase in their customer orders, and to make sure they would seize it, all internal teams had to be mobilized towards a common goal: the On Time Delivery (OTD).

To ensure the OTD achievement, the proposed approach was to setup a Project Management Office (PMO) structure reporting directly to the company’s CEO. A Voltarion team worked with the customer newly assigned PMO leads during the ramp-up period and had the mission of a) aligning, organizing and follow-up all the action plans and b) ensuring the commitment of all the stakeholders (Production, Quality, Process Engineering, Purchasing, Logistics, Finance and Sales).

Our implementation methodology was sustained by four main pillars:

  1. Regular review and monitoring of the action plans;
  2. Risk analysis and mitigation plans development;
  3. Operational Dashboard setup and review;
  4. Short Interval Control of key activities;
