A world leader in onshore and offshore turbine manufacturing.
Confronted with a rapid evolution of technical constraints making its offer obsolete in the short to medium term and a very strong pressure on costs, our client wishes:
The goal to be achieved: generate 30% more cost savings thanks to a Design-To-Cost project of the power chain.
An allocation of target costs by function is made to give the necessary economic objectives on the definition of the new product.
IAC consultants work in close coordination with programme management, engineering and procurement to arrive at the right definition of requirements, architectural choices, sourcing and co-design strategies with the main expert suppliers.
The search for optimized concepts is structured around 2 complementary axes:
IAC takes care of the definition of consultation documents, price breakdowns, as well as the monitoring and consolidation of offers in close collaboration with an engineering-purchasing team.
The technical and commercial alignment extended to the issues of warranties, indemnification clauses, technical availability and flexibility made it possible to build power relations on very solid bases and to conduct the final negotiations towards solidly tied contracts ensuring an excellent quality-cost-availability ratio.
-Results above targets, with 35% cost reduction achieved.
-An approach extended throughout the project to other areas with high cost stakes.
Thanks to this success, our customer was able to consolidate its position and lay the foundations for a new design at the scale of the complete turbine, incorporating the benefits of the new optimized power chain.
