Efficiency & Consistency

SITUATION

 A State Police Department sought Kerr’s advice on how to maximize throughput in order to get vehicles properly equipped and into service more quickly and consistently.

During an onsite review by GM and Kerr of the fleets current upfitting it was discovered the they were not utilizing Kerr installed GM wiring options that were designed to ensure faster and more reliable upfitting even though the vehicles were sold to the fleet that way.

Once the fleet had GM options fitted to the vehicles Kerr developed and installed wiring options that work with the vehicles electrical system. Kerr worked onsite to provide training and support to fleet technicians to ensure improved throughput was met.

The end result was a 45% reduction in installation time and a corresponding increase in throughput and upfit consistency. Kerr continues to work with the fleet providing on-going support and training as needed.
