Our corporate training success stories attest to our ability to achieve real-world impact. 

  • IIE recently worked with a major aerospace manufacturing company to assist with the deployment of what they refer to as program affordability. This is an organization-wide effort to use continuous improvement tools to reduce costs by both improving quality and increasing productivity. Our involvement began with a series of strategic planning initiatives led by the senior vice president responsible for the program. Once the strategy was set and agreed upon by operations and support, the training began. The initial training, a mix of Lean and Six Sigma, was conducted for senior management. This was followed by a cascade through the organizational ranks and included operations, engineering, and all support functions. The effort continues and will potentially be replicated in all of the company’s locations.
  • At an automotive sector manufacturing organization, the engineering/research and development groups led the effort to implement continuous improvement. IIE facilitated strategic planning led by the corporate director of engineering and the vice president of manufacturing. Their goal was to institutionalize the improvement efforts. Once the plan was put into place the organization, i.e., the steering committee, was formed consisting of the top officials in research and manufacturing, as well as each of the plant managers. Under the broad umbrella of Six Sigma, the steering committee received their first black belt training. This was followed by two more groups of senior managers. In order to learn how to apply continuous improvement, each of them is leading an improvement project as part of meeting the requirements for earning a black belt. Plans are now being made to roll out the training within the plants and support organizations.
  • Our efforts at a regional healthcare network resulted in the reduction of patient stays. This led to an increased availability of rooms, lower costs and increased efficiencies.
  • Our training efforts led a major national retailer to reduce inventory costs by $173,000,000 per year. The organization had been managing inventory using a just-in-case philosophy, i.e., we want the inventory in the store just in case someone needs it. By working with the organization on inventory management principles and incorporating simulation, major savings were realized.
