Kathy Xie & Mark - 480x260

Kathy Xie, Senior Manager of Supply Chain Solutions at Jabil St. Petersburg, understands what achieving success looks like, at least by her definition.  As the first place finalist in the Operational Excellence category of this year’s Deliver Best Practices competition, she says success is achieving what you set your mind to, no matter how big or small.

Her team set out to create a best-in-class capacity solution that is scalable, user friendly, fast, flexible, accurate and standardized. The title of their project is RapidResponse Capacity Solution and in just eight months it had met, and far exceeded, their own expectations.

Their project helped to create a solution to strategically lay down a foundation for Master Schedule Planning in one platform for Jabil. The end results included reduced process times, improved analysis accuracy and faster response times. She says she is happy to have had the opportunity to showcase what her team achieved.

Xie, who started at Jabil in 1999, says the best part of her job is knowing her work can make a difference. With 157 global business units now leveraging the team’s capacity solution, there is no doubt their project made a difference.

She says she gets her inspiration from being a mom and role model to two young kids. When she gets home from work, she spends time engaging in activities with them and helping them with homework.
