What do we do
The root of poor quality and low manufacturing productivity often can be traced back to processes that happen long before the product hits the shop floor. The problem emanates with product line complexity, product design, scheduling and sourcing. We assist clients to address the root cause of their problems and implement lean manufacturing techniques that potentially will improve the productivity of the company between 20% – 40%. Each solution is customised to the customers business and starts by the consultants investigating and analysing the cost drivers within a business. This is conducted by developing a clear understanding of the current and future demands of the business. This will end with a value stream map that will indicate the core activities that the business should concentrate on and what can potentially be outsourced based on economies of scale and complexity.
