Improving Quality through Process Innovation with Workflow Simulation and KLH Engineers

August 19, 2014 By April Raque Leave a comment

Advanced Solutions and Kohrs Lonnemann Heil (KLH) Engineers, PSC, have partnered on an internal process improvement through the Advanced Solutions Workflow Simulation service. Advanced Solutions approached KLH Engineers to be a Workflow Simulation partner, just as the KLH team was looking to examine their RFI and submittals process to validate weak points and identify opportunities for improvement.

KLH is constantly looking at ways to automate "busy" work, so their engineers can focus on being engineers. Executive Director of Engineering, Joseph Kohrs, PE, said, "We're not afraid to take chances with the technology." He went on to say, "We don't want to be the guy who waits for the technology to mature before we utilize it. We feel that is a failed response in terms of being innovative and staying ahead of the competition."

Once KLH embarked on the RFI and submittal assessment, Joseph says, "We knew that we were going to save time and money with a change to the process." "What Advanced Solutions was able to give us was a forecast of those potential savings." Advanced Solutions was able to show a decrease of 40% in the average number of submittal and RFI process steps, provide a 48% decrease in administrative overhead, and confirm required workflow changes between the receipt of the RFI and processing by the engineer to meet their targeted turnaround time.
