Manufacturers are increasingly turning to automation and other capital investments to improve capacity and efficiency, reduce waste, and maintain product quality. IPM can help you ensure your capital investments support your long-range business goals and then lead the execution of the related projects, minimizing disruption and maximizing long-term value.
Successful manufacturers improve performance by getting more out of their existing processes and equipment. Or by investing in ways to add to their production capability. Or both. Increasing capacity may require production line tweaks or buying new technology, equipment, or even facilities. Cost reduction tactics range from efficiency improvements to restructuring the distribution network.
IPM can help you identify what’s working and what needs work. Based on your own business model and objectives, our experts can help justify capital purchases and lead the selection and installation. Or they will work with you to refine production processes and optimize your existing equipment and resources.
Our collaborative, rigorous approach to operational excellence holds clear benefits for manufacturers:
Whether you require manufacturing improvements, capital project management, supply chain optimization, or a consolidation or relocation, IPM can help you reach your operational excellence goals.
As soon as you get into manufacturing improvement projects, you dig in and see things you didn’t anticipate. Solving new problems takes very strong relationships and communication to stay aligned on the goals and the approach, and IPM has those capabilities."
