Chris Yeats-Edwards, Customer Analytics Manager

My background in management accounting has given me the opportunity to find customer efficiencies in operations through analysis, insights, modeling and reports.  As a key member of the Personalized Customer Solutions Team (PCS), I interact with both the sales team and the customer through conference calls and site visits to integrate PLM's solutions into their processes and save them time and money.  We can run their fleet against benchmark data to identify competencies and improve inefficiencies as in the case study below.

Fleet Planning Analysis Case StudyPLM trailer open road (2)

Fleet Planning Analysis: Customer wanted to evaluate the optimal life cycle of its fleet, based on usage, maintenance spend, lease payments, and warranties with the goal to reduce total fleet costs by 10%.

PLM Solution: Through segment benchmarking and scenario testing, it was determined a shorter replacement cycle would reduce downtime and maintenance expense that exceeded increased fixed costs in the fleet. Through tightly managed replacement strategies, the fleet achieved 13.7% cost reduction with an astounding 68% decrease in downtime.
