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.

Industry Expertise

Industry 4.0 Solutions
Build factories of the future by embracing digital capabilities that will enhance your operations and turn you into an innovation powerhouse. We will guide you to implement the technologies, processes and new way of work that will make you an Industry 4.0 leader.
Business Transformation
Develop an implementation roadmap to make fundamental changes in how business is conducted to keep up with the shifts in the market. 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.
