Great South Metals, a prominent service center in flat-rolled metal industry, undertook a strategic initiative to overhaul its pricing and operational strategies. The implementation of this project aimed at refining GSM's pricing matrix to accurately reflect processing costs for both GSM-owned and customer-owned materials. The project utilized a DMAIC approach, focusing on the integration of complex data sets with ERP systems and managing organizational change. Key strategies introduced include the Grandfather method, which respects longstanding customer relationships while transitioning them to new pricing structures, and Staggered Break Adjustments, which optimize machine operation and reduce downtime. The implementation of these strategies not only addressed the immediate need for a more accurate pricing matrix but also positioned GSM for enhanced operational efficiency and customer retention.
