Cost Savings and Reduced Errors Through Time Standards
Source: Satyam Computer Services
The customer, a manufacturing company, was facing challenges in updating time standards due to cost pressures of maintaining a large industrial engineering workforce to stay abreast of engineering and process changes. There were instances when the time standards were not updated and hence inaccuracy affected the overall process time. Mahindra Satyam pioneered a model for setting up time standards for various assembly operations through an Onsite-Offshore model. To be performed largely from offshore (India), it involved qualified and trained personnel from Satyam accessing sources of inputs, analyzing the same and setting time standards.
