Challenge: In operations, it is imperative that all support functions remain competitive so that the departments that create the most value can have more financial resources to perform their tasks. In this challenge the team was to analyze a contractor base maintenance department to evaluate if in-sourcing would yield more dollar savings.
Contributing Re.engineer: Shadrach Stephens
Solution: By analyzing the data collected over a six month period, the team was able to use program development strategies to create a maintenance team that would reduce cost while increasing the maintenance and repair workloads. The previous contractor based strategy provided very little leverage between technical skillsets.
Results: Through effective planning, contract reductions and better resource allocation, the maintenance budget realized a 25% decreased ($172M annual savings). The organization went from a contractor based department maintaining 25,000 square ft to in-house staff maintaining 80,000 square ft.
Impact: $172,000 per year
