Case Study - Reducing Time-To-Market by 50% via Lean and Systems Dynamics Simulation


A large engineering firm were taking too long to get new products-to-market, and so were losing market share in some key product categories.

1. We mapped the (significantly complex, multi-national) process and gathered data

To increase understanding of what was really happening during new-product-introduction.

3. We addressed the bottlenecks and non-value adding activity

By removing, or significantly reducing, non-value-adding activity and reallocating resources to the bottlenecks.

4. We simulated the effects of the changes, then implemented and measured

To ensure changes were effective, sustained, and did not have unintended negative consequences.

5. Result

Time-To-Market was reduced by 50%!


Delivery to Plan


Time-To-Market Reduction


ROI from aorist consultancy, training and coaching

Businesses typically benefit from a 50 - 100+ times rate of return, when measuring the cost of an aorist Lean 6 Sigma or Systems Thinking / Systems Dynamics Simulation training course and coaching against the benefits derived from applying it the very first time in their business.
