Through an innovative risk/reward arrangement, whereby the project was funded from the benefits delivered, PA helped catalyse the programme at Devonport. We created a joint team to carry out a pilot project and prove that Lean could deliver the required improvements.
In just nine months, PA identified and delivered annual benefits of £2.5m (23% of the fleet time surface ship budget). PA has embedded Lean capability firmly within the naval base’s management team, ensuring that the benefits will continue well beyond PA’s direct involvement.
