Context

  • A leader in the manufacture of agricultural machinery: viticulture, cellars, arboriculture
  • A Group made up of 18 subsidiaries, more than 800 distributors and 5 production sites – two in France and three in the rest of Europe – where demand is highly seasonal. In addition to this, you need to know more about it.
  • A saturated industrial tool that does not meet the expected growth of 50% in activity over the next 5 years. In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Goal

Build an industrial master plan to meet the following challenges:

  • Absorb growth
  • Improve the cost structure
  • Increase customer satisfaction

Methodological Approach

  • State of play:
    • Interviews with management teams
    • Visit of the 5 production sites,
    • Value stream mapping,
    • Capacity analyzes: production and storage
  • Definition of the target: 5-year projection with sizing of surfaces – production, upstream / downstream storage – and machines by type of product
  • Validation of macro production planning rules and upstream / current / PF inventory management
    Scenario modeling: ROI, WCR gains, productivity, stock, capacity, CAPEX and risks
  • Validation of the target industrial footprint with optimization of the first identified CAPEX
  • Roadmap industrial master plan:
    • Risk control plan
    • Gap analysis between current & target plan with definition of macro initiatives to be launched

Results

  • 1 scenario simulation model integrating:
    • Cost structure
    • Footprint by family
    • Risk analysis
  • 5 scenario simulations on OPEX and CAPEX
  • 5-year road map with prerequisites and governance
