LeanDNA was named a Partner in Collaborative Innovation at the 2023 Manufacturing Leadership Awards.

AUSTIN, Texas, April 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Manufacturers Manufacturing Leadership Council has selected a project by Modine (NYSE: MOD), a diversified leader in thermal management technology and solutions, and LeanDNA, a leading intelligent supply chain execution platform, as a finalist in the Digital Supply Chain category for a 2024 Manufacturing Leadership Award.

The companies will be recognized for their submission, "Modine Manufacturing Company Implements LeanDNA to Optimize Inventory, Improve On-Time Delivery, and Increase Supply Chain Resiliency," at the Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala in Marco Island, Florida, on June 5, 2024.

In the award submission, Modine discussed challenges across its supply chain network stemming from inefficiencies. The organization implemented LeanDNA as its comprehensive intelligent supply chain execution solution. They cited predictive analytics and prescriptive execution recommendations as vital to digitally transforming its supply chain.

"This project has given the team at Modine more time to focus on intelligently executing and taking effective actions. You have to invest in smart learning and decision-making platforms like LeanDNA that can help you be more agile," said Vatsal Gandhi, Executive Director of Global Supply Chain at Modine.

"Modine was able to quickly drive value from LeanDNA by inviting a broad range of stakeholders, including material managers, buyers, planners, and procurement, to use the platform," said Richard Lebovitz, CEO of LeanDNA. "They established a structured framework and processes that enabled LeanDNA to become a cross-functional hub to address material health and improve overall collaboration expeditiously," said Lebovitz.

"LeanDNA seamlessly integrates with our ERP system and facilitates enhanced supply chain decision-making at multiple levels of the organization. It not only provides summary dashboards and intelligence to leadership, but it also empowers front-line employees with superior information and diminishes their workload," said James Dawsey, Senior SIOP & Demand Management Leader at Modine.

The project has resulted in significant, tangible improvements across various aspects of Modine's supply chain, most notably contributing to enhanced efficiency, reduced shortages, and improved overall operational resilience. Results have included:

  • Modine factories that have implemented the LeanDNA platform have seen a 50% reduction in supplier past dues and material health.
  • Modine plants with the LeanDNA platform realized a significant inventory reduction within the first 6 months of implementation.

Modine's partnership with LeanDNA allowed them to apply 80/20 business principles to their supply chain. Instead of spending 80% of their time building reports and analyzing data, and 20% of their time executing on actions, the team was able to flip these percentages.
