"In the context of the kick-off of a new PLM program in 2010, I immediately thought to gather once again the team which had contributed to the success of a similar project 10 years ago.

I had the pleasure to find again the consulting and functional expertise brought by the OCYO team. They shared with me their knowledge and practical experience on project management, process reengineering and change management, from program framing to implementation.”

In a challenging international context, I greatly appreciated the utmost commitment of the consultants and their management, on a project where schedule and budget are highly constrained.

The team integrated itself easily with multidisciplinary operational teams, bringing its extensive experience and added-value. Beyond their functional and operational expertise, OCYO team members have brought a surge of dynamism and energy to create a work-friendly and motivating environment.

It also want to underline the essential role hold held by OCYO management who, through constant coaching and continuous presence, has been able to insure continuity and knowledge transfer between consultants and operational resources."

"…We greatly appreciated the proactive force of the team, constantly bringing new proposals to help us move beyond our current practices, all the while mobilizing the entire organization from top management down to the field…" read more

"Areva Niger is structured in several companies, including 3 mines : 2 in activity for several dozen of years (Somair and Cominak), and one in development with increasing charge planned on many years (Imouraren). At nominal level Imouraren should provide twice the capacity of Cominak and Somair.

To optimize the activity of mines currently in production and secure the increasing workload of the new mine, we decided to reshape our door to door logistics, from the shipment of supplies to ore delivery in processing plants.

To take up this challenge, we decided to work with a consulting company. OCYO Consulting was selected for its expertise, its experience and its ability to put logistics at the service of operations in a demanding environment.

We greatly appreciated the proactive force of the team, constantly bringing new proposals to help us move beyond our current practices, all the while mobilizing the entire organization from top management down to the field. This project have allowed to introduce several innovations to cross a performance threshold.

The target processes envisioned were validated by all the mines. It is currently in deployment at Cominak, and will be starting soon at Somair. We had the pleasure to observe the increasing empowerment of the team. Road to excellence is now open."

In order to meet clients expectations, the company has to manage anticipation decisions on critical resources whereas to keep under control working capital. In this respect, we have decided to set up a genuine Sales & Operations Planning.

We chose OCYO to support us given they own a speed up core model, tool and approach but also the have a strong experience in the supply chain of project driven industry.

We carried out the implementation in a very pragmatic way, expanding the scope between two S&OP meetings. We were able to run a first S&OP on a major region only after 2 months. After a few cycles, we are fully autonomous. They are still some improvements ahead. But we succeed in introducing a radical mind change in a project driven culture."

In order to do so, the company have decided to acquire a new model of material planning shared with its suppliers.

OCYO was chosen to lead a pilot, because of their expertise in planning, their experience in industrial affair and their knowledge of the selected technology.

We faced many difficulties, knowing the long-term ambition is to build the foundations of the “end-to-end” planning, from suppliers to customers, even if the first step focuses on collaborating with suppliers. OCYO turned out to be a committed, reliable and skilled partner, overcoming difficulties, with a delivery date close to the objective. Furthermore, their positive attitude positioned towards improvement develops a trusting relationship with the business. To date, the system is under deployment with a favorable feedback."

"... Following an initial diagnosis, OCYO has highlighted several limitations, mainly due to dispersions within sites in the practices and tools, then structured a planning transformation plan ..." read more

« SIAé is in charge of maintaining the military aircraft fleet from 5 sites specialized by aircraft, equipments and/or missions. A radical transformation of the environment in the military maintenance world is occurring under the impulsion of Defense Minister. This external revolution leads inexorably to an internal one in SIAé. Within the major stakes to achieve, it is locked to set up an end to end services approach, targeting to increase aircraft availability. In this respect, planning maturity surge is a prerequisite.

Following an initial diagnosis, OCYO has highlighted several limitations, mainly due to dispersions within sites in the practices and tools, then structured a planning transformation plan. OCYO selection was driven by their expertise and experience in the field, but also by their capability to quickly deliver value, with ready to use pre-packaged rituals / cockpits.

By nature, the transformation plan aims at delivering changes month after month, in order to avoid a long tunnel effect, but with the minimum framing established during the diagnosis to guaranty consistency at completion. Up to now, the first transformation wave is ending with early pilot work-packages to be deployed in the other sites. The focus was on purpose on rituals, with temporary cockpits, prior to consider final information systems. Planning maturity has rised at each pilot scale with projected impact on performance.

Planning transformation is now on its way. The next challenge will be the portability of pilots on the other sites with, in particular, the appropriation by people »
