Man­u­fac­tur­ing

Meet evolving consumer demand by transforming operations, accelerating innovation, and optimising efficiency.

Industry 4.0 technologies are creating new opportunities for manufacturers, enabling them to ideate, manufacture and distribute products in new and exciting ways. While this is a time of great progress for the industry, it’s also one that comes with enormous pressure and urgency.

Manufacturers are struggling to improve their asset realisation, manage optimum inventory levels, improve resource productivity but are also finding it difficult to manage multi-SKU portfolios, honour customer demands and delivery commitments.

On top of this, supply chain disruption, trade wars, commodity price fluctuation and demand uncertainty are posing fresh challenges to the profitability and sustenance of traditional manufacturing businesses around the globe.

Given the sector’s diversity, complexity, and ever-changing business requirements, business leaders cannot rely on old ways of working.

There is a pressing need for companies to bring agility in their short-term planning and execution. This requires a holistic approach to transform how companies run their daily operations. It’s now an imperative to bring operational efficiency to every aspect of daily operations and to break mini silos within the organisation.

We partner with our clients to deliver sustainable cultural change and tangible financial and operational benefits through strengthening current processes, management systems, people competencies, and by leveraging technology and data analytics.

A digitally connected ecosystem and real-time visibility assist in the removal of silos across functions, resulting in lower costs, smaller inventories, and fewer lost sales.

Trans­form your oper­a­tions and oper­at­ing mod­el design, and cre­ate strate­gic align­ment of process­es, peo­ple, sys­tems and long-term busi­ness objectives. 
Pro­cure­ment
In today’s high­ly com­pet­i­tive envi­ron­ment, pro­cure­ment needs to be a strate­gic func­tion and not just oper­a­tional. Trans­form pro­cure­ment by improv­ing process­es, devel­op­ing ven­dor base and prod­uct alter­na­tives, and build­ing suit­able strate­gic sourc­ing models. 
Asset Real­i­sa­tion and Resource Productivity
With cus­tomers demand­ing faster sup­ply at low­er costs, com­pa­nies are now forced to oper­ate around the clock, all days of the week. It is now essen­tial for com­pa­nies to access their capac­i­ties to ensure that they are utilised to the max­i­mum before com­mit­ting to any new cap­i­tal expen­di­tures. We work with you to improve asset util­i­sa­tion and achieve high­er pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, cre­ate addi­tion­al capac­i­ty to pro­duce more goods, and improve pro­duc­tion effi­cien­cy, asset return on invest­ment and unit pro­duc­tion metrics.
Ener­gy and Fuel Management
Ris­ing ener­gy and fuel prices are adverse­ly impact­ing bot­tom lines. It is vital to reduce ener­gy con­sump­tion, improve equip­ment effi­cien­cy, reli­a­bil­i­ty, elim­i­nate waste and iden­ti­fy oppor­tu­ni­ties for improve­ment. Some things we help clients with include cost ben­e­fit analy­sis to iden­ti­fy suit­able energy-saving tech­nolo­gies and retro­fitting old equip­ment, estab­lish­ing spe­cif­ic pow­er con­sump­tion met­rics, and improv­ing effi­cien­cies and avail­abil­i­ty of util­i­ties and pro­duc­tion equipment. 
Sales and Oper­a­tions Planning
Demand­ing con­sumer behav­iour has forced man­u­fac­tur­ers to work with mul­ti­ple stock keep­ing units and sup­ply chains are strug­gling to keep up. Among the ways we help inte­grate sales and oper­a­tions include imple­ment­ing demand-driven pro­duc­tion plan­ning and sched­ul­ing, sales order seg­men­ta­tion, inven­to­ry buffer opti­mi­sa­tion and lever­ag­ing arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence and machine learn­ing tech­nolo­gies to improve demand fore­cast­ing accuracy.
Per­for­mance Management
Inte­grate busi­ness suc­cess para­me­ters with indi­vid­ual per­for­mance by design­ing and imple­ment­ing per­for­mance man­age­ment sys­tems. We help to design and imple­ment fit-for-purpose organ­i­sa­tion struc­ture, install per­for­mance eval­u­a­tion sys­tem and inte­grat­ing it with busi­ness objectives.
Man­pow­er Optimisation
Man­pow­er cost, both direct and indi­rect, is a sig­nif­i­cant com­po­nent of the oper­a­tional costs of any man­u­fac­tur­ing busi­ness. We work towards improv­ing man­pow­er pro­duc­tiv­i­ty through the stream­lin­ing of process­es, bet­ter work plan­ning and improved on-floor execution. 
Yield Improve­ment
Direct mate­ri­als and con­sum­ables con­tribute between 40% and 85% of the total costs, depend­ing on the indus­try seg­ment. Improve mate­r­i­al yield and bottom-line per­for­mance by reduc­ing waste and rejec­tions, repro­cess­ing quan­ti­ties by sta­bil­is­ing the man­u­fac­tur­ing process, stan­dar­d­is­ing bill of mate­ri­als (BOM) and recipes.
