The engineering department of an aircraft manufacturer had been blamed for repeated production delays. The drawings in the transitions needed to be identical to the plans and 70% of the drawings in the 60,000 transitions were rejected.
The Vice President of Engineering hired Insigniam’s breakthrough consultants to help them achieve a breakthrough in reducing drawing
During the three-day breakthrough thinking and project formulation sessions, the team took on a breakthrough goal to have 75% of the drawings pass the first time they were reviewed. This goal was to be achieved by year-end, which was six months away.
The team met their breakthrough goal with flying colors. Within three months almost all platforms had met the 75% drawing acceptance rate. This dramatically improved the company’s satisfaction with the engineering department.
