Reduction in Cycle Time for Bid Tab Creation

Pamela Kuehling explains how she helped customers experience less controllable delays as a result of bid tab creation cycle time. Bid Tabs are created after product bids are received from vendors, and are entered into Excel spreadsheets to show an apples to apples comparison. This helps Departments make better selection decisions. Solutions could only focus on what the Supply Division controlled. Learn how they achieved a 22% reduction in average days, a 7% reduction in standard deviation and an 11% reduction in the range of days for bid tab creation cycle time in procurement.
