  • Project Team: T. Hahn, W. Jackson, R. Sdano, J. Johnson,

    T. Dillemuth, M. Sisko

  • Steering Committee: M. D’Amico, R. Hancock

  • Mission Statement: Outsource all Transfer Conveyor Manufacturing

  • Background:

    • All transfer conveyors have been “Custom Design” activities tying up both valuable engineering and manufacturing resources. It is recognized that transfer conveyor manufacturing in itself is not a “core competency” but a key component in linking entire systems together. The value Provisur brings is the ability to design and specify an entire protein handling system.

    • Roughly 50 Belt conveyors to be manufactured in 2011

  • Project Goals:

    • Finalize a “standardized” conveyor with a menu of options and sizes that will

      • Allow the sales team to easily quote and specify

      • Permit the engineering team to specify key attributes w/o having to commit design resources

      • Allow a supplier to build ahead standardized parts and quickly react to customer orders

  • Project Plan and Deliverables:

    • Set up a cross-functional team with defined roles and responsibilities Aug 2011 - COMPLETE

    • Finalize standardize designs for the variety of conveyor options Aug 2011 - COMPLETE

    • Finalize a “labor +” contract with the supplier June 2011 - COMPLETE

    • Complete a design review with the team and outside supplier September 2011 - COMPLETE

    • Complete first conveyor build meeting cost, quality and delivery targets - Est. Oct 2011

Strategic sourcing engineered components
Strategic Sourcing – Engineered Components Improvement – Key Tenants

Supply Chain SPEED is critical to Provisur competitiveness

The Engineered Components supply chain is challenging – we are in constant “firefights” to meet internal and external customer expectations

Strategic sourcing engineered components1
Strategic Sourcing – Engineered Components Improvement – Key Tenants

Provisur has an extreme part mix and very short lead times - requiring an extremely flexible and evolved supply chain

It is our job to not only ensure execution of our current supply chain, but to continuously improve our supply chain speed

Strategic sourcing
Strategic Sourcing Improvement – Key Tenants

The future of Provisur’ Supply Chain will continue to be a work in progress. There are a lot of ideas that will be explored and current good efforts to be expanded

Bottom line – we need to challenge our current paradigms and make fundamental changes

  • $4M – Eng

  • $2M - Raw

  • $14M – Tact

  • $3M - Eng

  • $3M - Raw

  • $3M - Eng

Eng – Engineered “One Off’s”

Tact – Tactical – repeated purchases

Raw – Steel / Misc

Each Category needs different strategies

Tooling made to order
Tooling – Improvement – Key Tenants Made to Order

  • Type of Production

    • 100% “One-Off” Custom Engineered Production

  • Competitive Pressure:

    • Our Competitors are saying

      “Provisur can not respond rapidly – since they do not make tooling”

    • Provisur offering 5 day service – Competitors offering 3 day…

  • Counter Measures to explore:

    • Kitting at suppliers (COMPLETE)

    • Overnight Plating / Treating (COMPLETE)

    • Current two step order process… Tool room & then Purchasing – can streamline to one step (save ½ day) (COMPLETE)

    • Ship Direct on “Critical Orders” (UPS Pickup) with label printing being done from Mokina (save 1/2 day)

    • Review Repetitive orders – And figure out how to build ahead

    • Faster generation of prints for duplicate orders possible

    • Standardize sizes with customers – drive away from everything “custom”

    • Need to map entire process and streamline

Aftermarket Improvement – Key Tenants

  • Type of Production

    • 70% “Repetitive Parts”

  • Competitive Pressure:

    • Inventory high – currently needed to maintain fill rates

    • Can not let our customers go to someone else

  • Counter Measures to explore:

    • Need to review inventory levels based on moving demands

    • Can we remove the non-moving “rocks”

    • Bring Lean - consignment to be increased

    • Supplier Lead time improvements

    • Finalize contracts to allow more “flexibility” when “one off” parts are ordered

    • Review what machine / parts should be obsoleted

Production machines
Production Machines Improvement – Key Tenants

  • Type of Production

    • Mostly repetitive production parts / mixed with some engineered “One Offs”

  • Competitive Pressure:

    • 10-12 weeks for machines… quoted to customers

      • Customer consistently want machines with shorter lead times

    • Many parts have longer lead times… so ordering and pushing/pulling in anticipation of sales is killing suppliers and the supply chain team

    • 1,000’s of parts per machine – all ordered and received separately and most ordered per sales order. A supplier may ship in 80 line items per machine / each received separate

  • Counter Measures to explore:

    • Single Pricing – 3 year contracts

    • Supply Chain Review by machine – determine optimal level of assemblies to bring in and what suppliers should manufacture the parts

    • Kit the parts by machine

    • Pull System / lead time reduction with suppliers

    • Blanket orders w/releases for production parts

    • Explore additional consignment

Engineering projects
Engineering Projects Improvement – Key Tenants

  • Type of Production

    • 100% Engineered “One Off” parts

  • Competitive Pressure:

    • Parts are never fast enough…

    • Communication for part timing not always ideal

    • Massive disruptions of the supply chain – without forecasting

    • No timing on the part level – tying to build timing

  • Counter Measures to explore:

    • Stage/Gate Process set up to forecast demand (Complete)

      • Plan part arrivals and priorities per timeline and build

    • Engineering purchasing in engineering area (Complete)

    • Hold regular supply chain update meetings (Complete)

    • Attendance in Engineering Planning meetings to manage supplier capacity planning

    • Set up “Prototype” suppliers that have rapid turnaround that does not interrupt production schedules

Miscellaneous system improvements
Miscellaneous System Improvements Improvement – Key Tenants

  • Measures to explore:

    • ABC analysis and fixing order frequencies to match

    • Suppliers – portal expansion

    • RFQ – can be shifted to on line pricing

    • Prints – to investigate share site

    • Hold Design reviews with suppliers for cost reduction / Lean ideas

Case study supply agreements
Case Study: Supply Agreements Improvement – Key Tenants

  • Worked out a 3 year supply agreements with three key partners

  • Identified as the source for certain product lines

  • Suppliers now has

    • Steady flow of business

    • Can plan raw material group purchasing & labor

    • Can proceed with expansion plans

  • Provisur now has

    • Achieve volume / cost savings reductions

    • Working to a pull system

    • Working on Kitting

      Worked with Ace Metalcraft – savings totaled $340K / year…. w/ cost reductions

Case study brazil local sourcing
Case Study: Brazil Local Sourcing Improvement – Key Tenants

  • No aftermarket sales in Brazil – all locally produced by competitors

  • Provisur has competitive advantage with quality

    • Can not compete with Price (after Duty) and Lead Times

  • Strategy

    • Setting up presence in the country

    • Stocking high volume parts

    • Sub assemblies to be supplied from US suppliers – finishing in Brazil

      • This allows customization of parts to customer needs

    • Will come to supply base to determine the “best” level to manufacture and ship to Brazil

Case study npd sourcing plans
Case Study: NPD Sourcing Plans Improvement – Key Tenants

  • Past Practices

    • Quotes are for 1,3,6,12 quantities

    • No given volume forecasts

    • Each part purchased separately

    • Suppliers will supply up to 60 parts (with sixty line items) for each machine

    • Various pricing, volume etc. making for an accounting nightmare

  • Strategy

    • Quote parts by “Family of a Machine”

    • Complete Sourcing Strategy for each machine

      • Identify what assemblies, sub assemblies and kits should be combined

    • Quote 3 Year packages for parts and machines

Future project machine components
Future Project – Machine Components Improvement – Key Tenants

  • $30M / 3 yr program will be tensioned in upcoming months

    • This includes approximately $6M of new aftermarket parts from Weiler and Behive

  • 3 year supply agreements that incorporates the following:

    • Increase value

      • Assemblies, kitting, multiple processes

    • Reduce / stable cost through

      • Volume planning, inventory reductions, material handling

    • Lead us through lean fundamentals

      • Lead time, quality, waste reduction

  • Timing

    • Develop strategy and communicate to supply base by 10/2011

The keys for the future
The Keys for the Future Improvement – Key Tenants

  • Suppliers need to be able to:

    • Articulate a vision for future plans

    • Proactively improve the supply chain

    • Add intellectual human capital to create value in the supply chain

Jointly we need to proactively bring solutions
