Establishment of an Optimized Industrial Model

When our consultants complete a project, we ask them to share their experience to benefit the greatest number. This week, our adviser Amine Baffoun talks about his project wich consisted of establishing an optimized industrial model of manufacturing for repairing parts for the bus network, which was been directed by our senior advisor and strategic manager Rachid Ben Nasr.

What was the context of the company for which you carried out your mandate?

It is a public transit company that operates the second largest transportation system of its kind in Canada.

What was your role?

I was the project manager for the establishment of an optimized industrial model of manufacturing of different parts for the bus network in alignment with the supply chain processes.

What did you appreciate most about this mandate?

This mandate was special because it featured many agents involved in the production chain.

It was necessary to propose an industrial model that was more optimized than the one with which the transport company currently operates and, at the same time, to ensure the proper functioning of interdepartmental activities.

The project was even more interesting when we had to link the new industrial model proposed to the integration of new modules of an automated management software package.

What was the biggest challenge?

Presenting the final solution to everyone who participated in the different workshops was a big challenge. Indeed, with this new model, the company had to develop a global action plan that affected all departments at the same time.

What opportunities for the future have you identified?

After the validation of the new industrial model proposed to the management team, the most difficult will be the implementation of the project.

Currently, with our team of expert advisors, we are preparing a project structure to support the company in the implementation of the action plan to arrive at its ideal industrial model.
