Manufacturing Consulting

“If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”

– Henry Ford

Opportunities and Risks in a Complex World

Manufacturing is loaded with opportunities and risks that are rapidly changing in our increasingly complex world. Maintaining a profitable balance between the inputs to a manufacturing enterprise and its outputs requires a corporate strategy integrating competing inputs and detailed in-depth understanding what can give the enterprise a competitive edge among areas of specialization. 

What’s The Problem?

Markets are rapidly changing, products are trying to stay relevant, and human, physical and technological processes are resistant to change, while physical assets can become fatal liabilities. Within manufacturing consulting, especially when steeped with Lean and Six Sigma methodologies we can look at manufacturing within this complex environment as inputs and outputs.
