Background:

OmegaTech Corporation is a prominent player in the electronics manufacturing sector. Founded in 1995, the company experienced exponential growth until 2020. However, by late 2021, OmegaTech started facing challenges in production efficiency, leading to delayed deliveries and increased operational costs.

Challenge:

Production Delays: OmegaTech could not meet its delivery timelines, affecting client relationships and revenue.
