Manufacturing Supply Chains. Solved.
Lower Supply Chain Costs | Shorter Cycle Times | Lower Inventories | Higher Service Levels | Factory Optimized
RightChain Manufacturing and Assembly
We have been fortunate to work with many of the world's largest and most successful aerospace, automotive, and heavy industry corporations. Our automotive, truck and tractor engagements include Caterpillar, Ford, Honda, John Deere, Mack Trucks, Mitsubishi and Volkswagen. Our aerospace clients include Hamilton Sunstrand, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon and United Technologies. Our heavy industry clients include Carrier, GE, Siemens, Emerson and Swagelok among others. Honda overtook Toyota on the back of a RightChain implementation. Pratt & Whitney re-defined global assembly supply chain logistics on the back of a RightChain implementation. Carrier was named an Industry Week Top 10 Best Plant operator on the back of a RightChain implementation. We could keep going, but you get the idea. In automotive, aerospace, HVAC, power systems, missile systems, truck, tractor, and textile manufacturing .... RightChain Manufacturing has been a catalyst for the successful optimization of many of world's leading automotive, aerospace and heavy industry supply chains.
RightChain Manufacturing Results
RightChain implementations simultaneously increase revenue, reduce expenses and reduce capital charges. The overall result is higher gross margins, higher profitability, and higher return on capital investment.
In supply chain terms, revenue increases via higher fill rates and optimized store delivery frequencies and timing. Expenses are lowered via optimized transportation, warehousing, and sourcing. Supply chain capital charges are decreased via optimized inventory levels, optimized logistics infrastructure designs, and optimized rates.
Historically RightChain implementations yield the following range of results.
1. Lower Inventory (9% to 36%)
2. Higher Fill Rates (2 to 7 points)
3. Lower Supply Chain Costs (8% to 23%)
4. Faster Retail Response Times (1 to 3 days)
