Value-added is the keyword that means the most to manufacturers who try to make the best use of their technical or engineering capabilities, organizational efficiencies, and commercial strategies.

Hard as they try, many fail at capturing and monetizing value. This is born out of two obstacles: Firstly, they don’t differentiate their products from those of the competition. Secondly, they offer little to no incentive to persuade buyers to pay price premiums.

How We Create Value in Manufacturing

  1. Audit product design, quality, and functionality
  2. Forecast demand planning to benefit from economies of scale and scope
  3. Evaluate production runs and lot sizes
  4. Review production scheduling and setup, and operations management
  5. Measure costs of raw materials, work-in-progress and finished products
  6. Review the costs of carrying inventories
  7. Measure manufacturing and non-manufacturing overheads
  8. Set ambitious benchmarks and install performance controls in place.
