As a leader in the design, manufacture and installation of nuclear equipment, our client has experienced a significant increase in its orders since 2019. Since the projected workload over the next decade is well beyond the internal production capacity, it became essential to set up a subcontracting network to absorb excess capacity, as well a structure to manager it.
Several difficulties were identified for this project:
- Developing this subcontracting system during an ongoing order with tight deadline constraints.
- Sourcing and developing subcontracted operations with new partners that do not necessarily master the quality and safety specifications of the nuclear sector.
- Setting up a dedicated team to monitor this subcontracting.
- Carrying out all these operations during a global pandemic.
