Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd. (KOEL)
Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd. (KOEL) is a leading Diesel Engine and Generator Set (Gen-set) manufacturer in India. They design, manufacture, and supply Diesel Engines, which is at the heart of Gen-sets. Though this industry is aware that customers need fast and reliable delivery, KOEL and its competition could only offer customers delivery lead times of over four to six weeks because of the complexities in their manufacturing and supply chain. But after moving away from forecast-based model to consumption-based operations, the company is now able to offer guaranteed deliveries in one week. The company’s working-capital-turns also improved phenomenally converting KOEL from a persistently cash-starved business to a healthy one.
