Blue Bird Drives Customer Service Rates Higher
Founded in 1927 in Macon, Georgia, Blue Bird manufactures a complete line of Type A, C, and D school buses.
Situation: A several-year flurry of growth was good news to Blue Bird—until the company realized its customer service levels were dipping while its expedite requests were increasing.
Challenge: Blue Bird was growing quickly—but within its spare parts division, its top-down planning processes couldn’t keep up. Frequent stockouts led to expedite requests and forced the division’s planners to make constant adjustments to the forecast. Blue Bird needed a more collaborative and agile
planning process that could provide a more accurate view of the future up front while
making it easier for the company to respond to market shifts.
