A MAJOR PRIVATE LABEL RETAILER

Challenge

The company's development and production timelines were completely unsynchronized resulting in costly and unplanned air deliveries, order cancellations, reduced margins and ongoing QC issues.


Solution

RTB spearheaded the development of a single corporate time and action calendar that aligned practices and procedures across all global design, product and technical teams. Designed reporting tools to evaluate Fit room efficiencies. Overhauled tech pack and PLM. Drove a Parallel Review process to partner with and train offshore vendor teams.


Result

On-time approvals and production reduced air deliveries by 30% and increased speed to market exponentially. Reduced fit approval rate by 50% (from 5 to 1.5) in 6 months. Cut pre-production expense by 50%. Improved PDM report quality and content.
