AMEND OpEx Process
Customized Operations Assessment
We head straight to the production floor to understand your people, processes, and systems. We make sure we get to the core of the problem by analyzing your data and identifying opportunities that exist. Our assessments typically include everything from examining high-level strategy to interviewing shop floor employees.
Together, we build a roadmap that illustrates opportunities with the highest ROI backed by financial analysis.
Instead of just formulating recommendations, we roll up our sleeves to make sure implementations are successful and that financial gains are realized.
Implementation ranges anywhere from deploying process improvements to creating automated tools aimed at eliminating waste or creating capacity.
To ensure sustainability, we put an immense focus on making sure our work sticks. Our approach includes one-on-one training, formalized documentation of new OpEx processes, tools, and systems. We then schedule strategic audits to ensure any OpEx process improvements haven't slipped.
