  • 46. Lean 6 Sigma business case examples Cash improvement: Our customer wanted to reduce their current overdue by 80% from 10 M€ (representing more than 10% of one year revenue) down to 2 M€. Potential benefit: 5% (cost of money)*8 M€ = 400K€. Cost of Six Sigma project: 100 K€. Return on investment: 4. After analysing 4 months of receivable aged balance it was found: >  the receivable aged balance was not measuring the real overdue (revenue recognition issue) 15% deviation >  20% of the invoices had no payment due date. >  15% of the invoices were not addressed to the right international financial and funding organisation (special contracts funded by IMF, WB, etc…) >  33% were customer disputes >  17% were real late payments (5% because of invoice sent too late, 12% without a valid reason but were not chased) After fixing the main issues and changing the invoice process we reached a stable monthly overdue amount of less than 1.9 M€. Project Sourcing efficiency: Our customer wanted to increase their margin on the projects that they are selling. Due to a tough competition, it was decided to source more efficiently the services and the IT systems. After a first financial analysis, we started one project on Low Cost Country Sourcing. Potential benefits on one year: 620 K€. Cost of Six Sigma project: 120 K€. Return on Investment: >5. For this project, we have redesigned the sourcing processes, introduced a new Purchase Forecast tool and assigned Goals & Objectives to Buyers. As a result of these changes, the amount of purchases made in Low Cost Countries increased from 18% to 24% in 6 months, with a forecast of 30% in the next 6 months.

  • 47. Lean 6 Sigma business case examples (2) Customer order Webification: Our customers wanted to automate and optimize their Customer order process from sales representatives taking orders to Back office logistic persons transmitting orders to manufacturing and/or suppliers: Potential benefits (productivity and capacity gains) : 55% of gains on 11 people *87K€ = 520K€. Cost of Lean Six Sigma project: 120 K€. Return on investment after one years = 4.33 After a Value Stream Analysis and a confirmation meeting with main stakeholders it was decided to: 1.  Simplify the process (suppression of administrative validations (not necessary and ceating delays and errors) 2.  IT « Webification » of the Customer order process (orders taken offline on sales laptops and sent/synchronized with email) 3.  Automatic interface with supplier IT system and only one validation in all the process After a training of involved parties and a 3 months pilot of the new process, the measurements done confirms that only 5 employees can manage and process an identical order volume. Financial Analysis Optimization: Our customer wanted to use the ORACLE-GL Financial analysis module instead of Excel, to realize all its analytical financial reports. Potential benefits: (productivity) : 3 interims*50 K€ = 150K€. Cost of project Lean Six Sigma : 50 K€. Return on investment after one years = 3 After an exhaustive inventory listing of all the existing analytical reports, their value and the cost to produce them, it was decided to keep 12 standard reports and to model them into Oracle-GL. After 2 months and few tunings, the measurements shows that 98% of all demanded analysis can be answered with the Oracle-GL analytical module.
