In a highly competitive industry, Stratega has helped several companies achieve operational excellence and improve their performance.
The automotive industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies, changing consumer demands, and shifting market dynamics. As an experienced automotive business consultant, it is important to stay abreast of these trends and challenges in order to provide the most effective guidance to clients.
One major trend in the automotive industry is the move towards electric and hybrid vehicles. Consumers are increasingly interested in environmentally-friendly options, and companies that can offer these types of vehicles are likely to see increased demand. At the same time, there are challenges associated with producing and marketing electric vehicles, including cost, infrastructure limitations, and consumer education.
Another trend is the increasing use of automation and artificial intelligence in the manufacturing process. From assembly line robots to machine learning algorithms that optimize supply chain operations, automation is becoming more prevalent in the automotive industry. This can improve efficiency and reduce costs, but it also requires significant investment and a highly skilled workforce.
In addition to these trends, there are also ongoing challenges in the automotive industry related to global competition, changing regulations, and the need to constantly innovate and differentiate from competitors. As a consultant, it is important to help clients navigate these challenges and identify opportunities for growth and improvement.
At Stratega Consulting, we have worked alongside several companies in the automotive industry, customizing each project to ensure industry-leading performance improvement and ROI. Whether it is developing a sustainability strategy, optimizing supply chain operations, or improving customer experience, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive and effective solutions that help our clients stay ahead of the curve in this dynamic industry.
Stratega took part in the consultancy activities for a French newsprint paper manufacturer facing increased demand and operational uncertainties leading to potential losses and inefficiencies. Within a tight timeframe of less than a week, Stratega identified four key areas for improvement. As a result, the printing house achieved a remarkable 20% reduction in operational costs through improved efficiency and supply management.
The implementation of the Operational Excellence methodology led to a 30% increase in NOP (from -10% to +20%) and a significant improvement in market share due to better plant utilization and improved business profitability. The results were confirmed in the years following Stratega's intervention. The work done has created a solid foundation of processes and technologies, durable and with great future potential.
Through our Asset Care program and our work with the team, the company was able to improve line availability, OEE and OTIF of products, reduce maintenance costs, and ensure profit. Our work has also created a culture of failure prevention and enabled them to better manage plants, ensuring customer satisfaction and company growth.
Stratega has helped implement a successful TPM program, customizing the approach based on the specific particularities and challenges of their organization. The turning point of the project was to complement the training material, which in itself was very comprehensive, with an on-demand coaching activity. Thanks to this, the result was a 20:1 ROI in just 9 months, with a target audience of 1750 people.
