Working alongside manufacturing businesses, we deliver measurable, net-business cost improvement through component and process value engineering.
These improvements are usually measured in terms of direct cost, typically from packaging materials, manufacturing labour and supply chain. This latter element can cover both inbound and outbound supply process improvement, it may also include direct benefits from inventory reduction, handling, pallet fill, freight, wastage and environmental levies etc.
Our approach to cost optimization projects is based on an initial Survey of current and projected requirements. This survey allows us to map key requirements and to assess them against current materials and process capabilities within the manufacturing chain. From this survey we can present back our Project Management team, together with detailed opportunities for cost improvement, supported by a technical and commercial rationale for change.
