Manufacturing Process Improvement

Getting a high-quality product out the door on-time at the lowest possible cost can be a challenging and frustrating experience, both professionally and personally.  From listening to our manufacturing customers, these issues seem to be more common than not:

  • We have a large amount of rework that wastes time, materials, money, and our customers’ patience.
  • Our production costs seem too high
  • Scheduling problems are causing late orders and cash flow challenges
  • We have excessive unplanned equipment downtime
  • I don’t know how to go about automating my manufacturing process
  • We have a lack of capacity to meet our business demands

Manufacturers need to use effective processes to eliminate waste, lower costs, and provide high quality products. Our team will work with you to map, measure, and assess your operations, products, and processes, identifying any gaps and potential for improvement. Working with you, we will analyze the options and prioritize for the greatest impacts.  Reducing operational inefficiencies frees up valuable time, resources and equipment, driving high performance within your organization and opening new avenues for additional business and growth.
