Impacting a specific step of a long and complex system can improve the whole system. For an optimal S&R process, our team focused on the activities in Siemens’ Precision Lab. The Precision Lab is a center for assessment, inspection, refurbishment, calibration, storage, and management of the test tools and equipment rented by Siemens to major power generation plants. Compared to the Deer Park facility in Houston, received inventory in the Atlanta branch tends to accumulate due to long turnaround time. Our goal was to identify and analyse the bottlenecks behind the backlog and propose solutions to speed up the inspection flow, reduce late assessment of tools and optimize inventory management.
