Manufacturing

REDUCE COSTS. IMPROVE MARGINS.

Streamline your operation and cut your costs.

In today's manufacturing climate, your competitive edge relies on improving operating margins, reducing overhead costs, and decreasing capital requirements - all while bearing greater demands from consumers. Using our honed LEAN Improvement Methodology, we will guide you to achieve a measurable 40% average increase in productivity. 

HOW WE HELP

IMPROVE OPERATING MARDIN AND REDUCE OVERHEAD COSTS

Competing in today's global economy requires manufacturing organizations to improve their operating margin, reduce overhead costs, and decrease capital requirements. Additionally, consumers demands are increasing for higher quality, lower price and faster delivery. We go beyond processes to examine products and people including staff performance, management behavior, and use of technology that are critical to your business operations. 

We do not simply leave clients with a report of recommendations. We employ a participative approach to engage your team through every step of our engagement. Through interviewing employees and managers, reviewing documentation, and observing processes, Chmltech Solutions addresses key areas to improve efficiency, optimize cost, and improve quality through effective organizational design. 

PROVEN RESULTS

WE CREATE A CULTURE OF CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Chmltech’s methodology goes beyond processes to examine products and people including staff performance, management behavior and use of technology that are critical to your business operations. We do not simply leave clients with a report of recommendations.  Rather, we employ an approach that engages your people through every step of the transformational journey.

Chmltech brings an experienced team with deep industry knowledge and a powerful Methodology to every initiative.  Below are some of our key activities you can expect during the project:

Defining Key Performance Metrics (KPIs) – we will create a framework to identify the Key Metrics including Service Levels, Productivity, Speed and Quality for Key Processes. These measures can be used to determine the current level of performance as well as measure the success of the implementation.

Ownership of change – Our approach ensures that your team are the key drivers of the change and that they will continue to maintain ownership over their processes as they collectively optimize operations.

Review of Current Practices and Tools – Chmltech will conduct a thorough as-is analysis from which we can then design sustainable solutions. This includes mapping key processes, gathering and analyzing financial/operating data, conducting direct observations and mapping out management tools.

Assessing Impact of Non-Value-Added Activities – Chmltech will perform process observations to uncover the customer value-added and non-value-added activities.  These observations will highlight manufacturing capacity.

Change Management Strategy – Chmltech will conduct an initial assessment of the organization to identify the change readiness.  We will then be able to provide a comprehensive plan to address change management needs for the project.

Implementation of Management Tools – Chmltech will work alongside your company’s leadership to implement tools that translate your company’s strategic plan into activities understood by all employees.

Introduction to Lean Thinking Chmltech often delivers introductory workshop on Process Improvement. The workshop covers improvement concepts as well as outline the change management process.

5S Analysis – Chmltech provides a complete 5S assessment of your manufacturing workplace based on LEAN and Six Sigma methodologies. This is an opportunity to discard waste and implement a clean, efficient environment.
