Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, recently authored a feature article for Automation & Control magazine. The article profiled Pinnacle Strategies’ proprietary RABIT methodology. RABIT is an acronym for Rapid Analysis and Bottleneck Improvement Team. According to Cutler, “Frequently in engineering and manufacturing environments, there are an uncontrollable number of projects, yet customers demand immediate completion. Teams of hardworking professionals get so far behind that even the simplest of tasks cannot be completed. Lacking the necessary inputs, work is constantly starting and stopping; communications snafus create more delays, causing project lead times to grow exponentially.”
Twenty percent (20%) more output in two months is rarely promised. RABIT is a tool needed by manufacturers when rapidly improved throughput is required. Companies including BP and FMC Technologies have utilized the RABIT methodology quite successfully.
