Projet de gestion et d’optimisation des coûts pour le chemin de fer

Objective & context

Cost optimization and coordination project for the Scandinavian regional trains manufacturing and services contract of the leading train manufacturer.
The objective is to manage the unit cost of the train, reduce it and track the cost evolution.

Realizations

We ran the internal benchmark studies with other trains designed on the base of the common platform. By gathering the results of design to cost optimization we selected the applicable ideas on each commodity (with the priorities on the high-cost reduction impacts / which can be applied easily or with some conditions). We organized the brainstorming sessions with Engineering, Purchasing and Industrialization departments to complete the ideas, list and define the associated action plans.
We provided first estimation of the projected cost of the train, with Risks and Savings opportunities estimation, and validated these hypothesis with the suppliers and internal production units.

Added value & customer benefits

We managed to mitigate the recent raw material price increase with the countermeasures, defined and validated together with multi disciplinary teams of the customer. We also enhanced the communication on the design to cost methodology’s added value and provided the concrete guidance to improve the margin generated by the project.

Les trackers solaires 2D encadrent l’approvisionnement international

Objective & context

We supported the French innovative start up designing the 2D solar trackers with the international sourcing activities on the steel structure.

Realizations

Based on the design optimization study we conducted the best in cost sourcing research.
Firstly, we defined with the customer the potential supplier panel depending on the final installation location, steel prices and local machines parc.
Secondly, we contacted the suppliers in Turkey, China and Eastern Europe, communicated the cost targets and received the commercial offers.
And finally, we organized the visits with the mechanical lead engineer and the project director of the local suppliers to evaluate the production lines and negotiated the prices.

Realizations

We succeeded to divide by 3 the first mechanical design costs and confirmed these costs with the suppliers offers. The project was bought by the leading electrification group.

Projet design to cost de la cabine équipant la nouvelle génération de tracteurs

Objective & context

We worked on the design to cost optimization for the new cabin equipping the multi range tractors of the German and French agricultural machine manufacturer. The aim is to design the future generation of the cabins and reduce the production costs to fit the profitability targets of the cabin project but also to contribute to the profit generation of the different tractors project (small-medium, medium and large size).

Realizations

Organize the multi disciplinary teams per work package set up around the common profitability goals.
Define the cost drivers per commodity (by leading the workshops of brainstorming with engineering, purchasing and project management team)
Ascertain the target price for each sub system and commodity at early stage of the cabin design.
Follow the full cabin line up costs and define the opportunities and risks lists per commodity.
Manage the outsourced and internal cost target studies and assist the buyers for their understanding and negotiations with suppliers.

Added value & customer benefits

We obtained total 7% reduction on the project comparing to the previous generation of the cabs with some commodity costs negotiated with suppliers down to -30%. During our mission we also helped to adapt the customer’s “luxury conception culture” in the design phase to the cost target-oriented approach by sub-system managed by cost integration and their cost drivers understanding, particularly on the interfaces.
