Driving Performance Excellence for Heavy & Industrial Companies
Increased demand for industrial equipment has created opportunity for manufacturers to drive top-line growth and to increase market share. To meet this growth organizations are under pressure to implement improvements that enable more efficient and cost-effective production while simultaneously maintaining high quality standards. Furthermore, growing product configurations for customers and compressed lead times require that manufacturers be agile and responsive. Firms with a robust Performance Excellence capability, both internally and within the supply base, will be positioned to capitalize on industry tailwinds and evolving customer trends, and to create lasting improvement.
Implementation Engineers partners with manufacturers across the organization to implement critical solutions such as:
- Implementation Engineers partners with manufacturing companies to develop and/or enhance existing Lean Six Sigma and Design for Six Sigma expertise. Over time, internal capability can deteriorate; internal constraints and competing priorities have caused existing Continuous Improvement programs to deliver marginalized results. We work with clients to sharpen these capabilities and develop the next generation of improvement leaders to ensure internal improvement organizations are equipped and skilled to execute projects and sustain results.
- Implementation Engineers takes a systems approach to ensure Performance Excellence for these complex business challenges. Sourcing for Performance Excellence drives broader value-based decisions to not only ensure the supply chain effectively supports operations with materials, but also that the supplier base is aligned with and able to delivery to your manufacturing plan. We partner with clients to transform the supply chain into a competitive advantage.
