Transform Your Organization’s Performance

Major Medical Equipment Manufacturer Saves Tens of Millions of Dollars

“I know of no quicker more effective approach to improving performance than the Factory Physics approach.”

Chandra Sekhar, 
Corporate VP of Manufacturing Strategy (ret.), 
Baxter Healthcare

The Vice President of Manufacturing for the European division of Baxter was looking for a way to take his organization to the next level of performance.

The Vice President’s division was recognized within Baxter for being at the leading edge of performance improvement and the company is widely known for having a competitive edge in operations.

Baxter trained its own internal experts in the operations science of Factory Physics concepts and licensed CSUITE Operations Analytics software for application world-wide.

Challenges And Opportunities

The European division had absorbed all the standard continuous improvement initiatives (Lean, TOC, 6Sigma)

Too many gaps between how all the initiatives fit together.

No clear, coherent structure for understanding which method was appropriate when. Fairly random efforts to drive improvement within the structure of the company’s ERP system and yearly financial goals.

Worked on pilot projects to demonstrate results and establish concepts in Baxter context.

Trained internal experts employees in practical operations science and CSUITE operations analytics. Worked with the experts to apply concepts on experts’ own projects.

Established unique, unified Baxter framework for application and implementation of operations science.

Provided sustainable approach to improved operations management, stronger financial performance


Over $60 million in savings in the first 3 years alone.*

Initial group of ~25 experts trained over 12 months with actual project work tied to classroom training.

Experts trained hundreds of Baxter personnel for internal propagation of business improvements.


*Official documentation of savings was discontinued after initial results were so strong.
