Analytical & Mapping

Before you can set out on a journey you first have to know where you are now, and where you want to get to in the future.

This is where analytical and mapping tools can help you understand where the business currently is, and what the opportunities are in front of you.

We have a number of offerings to support this step – each has its own strengths, and an appropriate time and place to use them. Depending on what you want to achieve we can advise on what would suit best.

Benchmarking and Manufacturing Assessments

During a Manufacturing Assessment we take a deep dive into your organisation to assess practices and procedures and interview a range of your personnel to understand how your operation currently ticks.

Value Stream Mapping

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a diagnostic tool to analyse current operations, identify a future state for operations, and to identify the steps required to achieve change.

Capacity Analysis

We can compare your rated plant performance to your actual plant performance and customer demand to identify opportunities to increase throughput and address bottlenecks.

Plant Layout

The layout of a plant is critical to operational efficiency, and can dictate Operational Design. To improve the efficiency of a plant the layout has to be optimised.

Operational Design

How a plant or process is operated has a big impact on throughput, inventory and lead times. By considering the operational design or philosophy significant step changes in performance and efficiency are possible.
