Manufacturing

Despite years of experience with a multitude of operations improvement methods, many manufacturers aren’t able to conduct rapid, integrated operations transformations across complex production systems. Companies need this ability to develop operational excellence as well as address global manufacturing competition, increase customer expectations and shift global economics. Operational excellence is the key to developing competitive products, increaseing customer satisfaction and financial performance, and responding to opportunities in a volatile market.

Achieving operational excellence requires a combination of well-executed approaches that includes the skills to understand the interconnectivity of complex processes, and not just one small segment of a process. An end-to-end improvement approach is essential. By leveraging the organizational knowledge across all hierarchical levels and tapping into the collective experiences and understanding of all staff levels, a company can effectively prioritize resources and implement accountability structures to sustain predictable and reliable processes.

UHY Advisors offers a manufacturing improvement process that integrates all key stakeholders from the beginning. By doing so, we are able to draw on a broad range of tools and methodologies without being ideologically committed to a single concept. Based on our specialized expertise, UHY Advisors has developed an Enterprise Optimization methodology, which is our proprietary approach that leverages concepts from Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints, Balanced Scorecard, among many others. Enterprise Optimization leads to rapid changes and sustainable results through the use of our Optimal Performance Management System (OPMS™), and a culture of Continuous Improvement.

If your company is experiencing any of the following, UHY Advisors can help:

  • Margin erosion
  • Capacity constraints
  • Extensive inventory
  • Delivery performance issues (i.e. late delivery, missed delivery commitments, and  unfulfilled order-backlog)
  • Integrating products and processes, either after new product launch, or facility transfer or consolidation
