Situation: Large-volume, US program with highly specialized engineering needs.  Supported by internal resources & home-grown technology.

Problem: Pressure to find savings with an already volume-leveraged supply base.

Solution: Brightfield’s assessment & data analysis found opportunities to capture savings by:

  • rebidding contracts using a tenure discount strategy
  • shrinking variance in contractor pay rates by validating job levels
  • upgrading to a leading VMS, enabling automated cost controls

Brightfield created RFP & price modeling, providing client with a robust “what-if” platform to test various scenarios & outcomes.

Results: ~$73M in cost savings over 3 years and a rationalized supplier roster.
