Commercial Excellence with Protean Electric
In 2019, Protean was manufacturing its fourth generation in-wheel motor and Evergrande – its parent company – had challenged the business to achieve a significant reduction in its bill of materials (BoM). However, some design complications were proving difficult to eradicate and, had they been left unresolved, could have undermined investor confidence.
A targeted design-to-cost strategy was proposed to drive down the BoM, whilst refining the product on route to market. The combined sector knowledge and engineering expertise of Vendigital’s team made it possible to apply ‘should cost’ modelling techniques and challenge every aspect of the product’s design and production.
By the end of 2020, the project team had validated with supplier quotes that the BoM reduction target was achievable and could even be reduced further. Vendigital’s hands-on delivery in sourcing suppliers and supporting the engineering process also helped to resolve several design challenges and add commercial value.
Rising Star – Andy Roderick, Consultant at Vendigital
Having joined Vendigital as an intern, it quickly became clear that Andy had the makings of a highly capable consultant and he was appointed Analyst Consultant in June 2018.
As well as demonstrating high-level strategic thinking, his intellectual curiosity and ability to understand concepts, business models and industry economic models quickly, have proved great assets in his career to date. Andy has led a range of successful client projects, generating significant cost reductions for clients in the media, retail and transport sectors underpinned by a tenacious work ethic, across procurement & supply chain, process improvement and change management.
His people-focused approach, combined with his passion for delivering transformational improvements from both a cost and cultural perspective, set Andy apart as a consultant who strives to understand clients’ needs and win their support. His ability to cut through jargon and communicate solutions in a transparent and accessible way enable him to win trust quickly and get things done.
