Tighter profit margins and globalization has led companies to a continued drive for cost saving and improvement. Sometimes this is difficult within the company given the day to day running and we can provide a fresh pair of eyes sometimes seeing new opportunities from previous experience. Thirty years of manufacturing experience within multiple industries has allowed us to identify savings from simple label changes to redesign of the manufacturing process – all leading to significant cost reductions.
We use multiple tools to achieve this including traditional methods like work study or newer techniques like production simulation. Simulation of the process has allowed us to demonstrate constrained flow and allow ‘What-If’ scenarios to be acted out using realistic schedules.
Though within the highly regulated medical industry many changes require submissions to the notified bodies for approval especially for ‘Special Processes’. We can advise whether this is the case and prepare the notification if necessary.
