Improving Uptime and Reducing Costs

Predictable scheduling is difficult. Most businesses would prefer a schedule that did not succumb to the variations in material, equipment, and labor supply, or customer demand and product cycle issues. Nonetheless, production is often not effectively scheduled or controlled because the specific tasks, material, or equipment required—from input to output—do not properly consider labor and machine hours, material quality and yield, or customer’s needs.

This breakdown in scheduling will result in lower productivity, inflated work‐in‐process, extended cycle times, and missed shipping dates. Carpedia addresses these issues head‐on with a comprehensive approach to manufacturing process improvement. By focusing on the interrelated areas of your process, your management operating systems, and leadership development, we help you implement solutions that will improve your productivity, reduce cycle time, and assure your customers more predictable on‐time delivery.

Delivering Measurable Results

Our manufacturing consulting services deliver measurable results by working closely with your leadership team to align the core expectations of the business with the business plan. This will include significant upgrades to the scheduling process and visibility to it, and often provides improvements to demand and supply planning.

We work closely with your managers and internal improvement teams to identify and problem-solve operating issues that cause costly downtime. Our consultants have a consistent track record of delivering improvements in equipment and line uptime, as well as reductions in material cost through improved yields.

In addition to better planning and process change, we provide your leaders with the education required to effectively plan their performance and confidently problem-solve issues that are impeding performance. Communication between departments is also improved significantly.
