We help manufacturers achieve on-time purchasing and manufacturing by working with your team to revitalize your order fulfillment pipeline to:

  • Reduce past due backlogs
  • Reduce lead times
  • Improve on-time shipments
  • Improve profit margins
  • Improve capacity planning
  • Improve order status visibility
  • Keep customer commitments
  • Reduce manual workarounds
  • Reduce inventory
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Remediate ERP data and usage
  • Prepare for growing demand

These objectives can be achieved USING YOUR EXISTING ERP because
it often matters much more HOW you use your system than WHICH system you have

We eliminate the common misconceptions and manual workarounds that can make any operation ineffective and inefficient

We are ERP SYSTEM-AGNOSTIC with technical expertise in over a dozen different systems ranging from QuickBooks to SAP.  Our experience and expertise span multiple make-to-stock, make-to-order, and engineer-to-order manufacturing industry sectors from toilet paper to spacecraft.

90 DAYS TO ON-TIME EXECUTION systematically implements operating improvements in five key areas as needed to establish a lean customer-driven on-time supply chain using your existing systems, people, and equipment:

90-Day Fix Process

This video provides a brief overview of the "90 Day" process:

This action-oriented approach is well-suited for manufacturers suffering from late customer shipments, long lead times, large order backlogs, or low operating margins. The manufacturers who stand to benefit the most are those who:

  • Must deliver their products by a specified due date
  • Produce a variety of products (high mix)

The more complex the operation, the greater the potential for meaningful improvements.


  • We review the way you manage Customer Orders and/or forecasts and ensure that they effectively drive operations
  • We help establish a way for you to ensure the viability of schedule commitments early on so manufacturing, procurement, and suppliers are set up for success
  • We establish customer change management throughout the order fulfillment process that promotes stability and efficiency


  • We review, develop, update, cleanse, and/or optimize system data and settings as needed including key planning parameters
  • We ensure that accurate manufacturing and purchasing requirements are generated
  • We ensure that supply orders are correctly created to meet customer requirements
Supportive Planning


  • We establish an effective capacity model that ensures effective and accurate shop floor loading
  • We institute scheduling practices that promote on-time supply chain execution
  • We ensure that you have an effective mechanism to communicate stable customer-centric work priorities that are coordinated and aligned throughout the supply chain
Stabilized Scheduling


  • We resolve critical production bottlenecks
  • We ensure that purchasing, manufacturing, and warehouse orders are effectively managed to support customer requirements with the greatest efficiency
  • We help you monitor and enforce schedule adherence at every point of the production pipeline so that on-time performance becomes inevitable
  • We help you to effectively manage scrap and rework as needed to minimize delays and disruptions
Customer-Driven Execution


  • We define and implement operating metrics that provide management with a clear view of day-to-day performance
  • We design a sustaining management action plan that summarizes your operating issues and prioritizes follow-on improvements
  • As an option, we can perform "Surveillance Audits" where we continue to monitor and troubleshoot implemented improvements to ensure that they are sustained
