The company engaged Ensemble to manage the rapid expansion of the constrained part of its supply chain. Our expertise in optimising critically constrained resources as well as our advanced planning and scheduling capabilities were seen as critical success factors.
The Ensemble Effect
Using our systems approach, we sequenced our client’s project plan to ramp up port capacity in line with the increased mine production. Our methods delivered 33% higher productivity than client expectations—increasing engineering output, reducing project lead time, lowering costs and freeing up resources early to work on the next phase of expansion.
The result? Additional profit of over $100 million. The increased flow in the expanded port delivered an additional 4,000 tonnes of iron ore per hour, valued at more than $1.5 billion of extra annual profit.
Using Critical Chain and Concerto, it was like I learnt how to properly conduct the orchestra.”
