Systems to Support Common Goals: Everyday Consumer Satisfaction
The worldwide recession has caused a seismic shift in the consumer products industry. Hitting at a time when competition was already very intense, many companies now find themselves forced to make unthinkable cost cuts to remain profitable.
No longer is the improvement approach focused on cost-cutting programs to address inefficiencies that occur before the product is shipped out. To be competitive in today’s market, a more holistic approach with pace and perspective is required. AMEND Consulting helps consumer product manufacturers maximize end-to-end supply chain excellence, again balancing Safety / Quality / Delivery / and Cost of delivery across large volumes with razor-thin margins.
