Improving safety, productivity, quality and delivery

We think of Industrial Manufacturing as the conversion of raw materials into a finished good or product — usually on a large scale. Manufacturing technologies, materials and production methods vary widely, but the foundation for improvement is better asset utilization, top quality and on-time delivery.

The focus for improvement activities is the elimination of waste in any process, area or function. The key to success comes from knowing how to translate standard waste elimination techniques to specific situations and production processes. This means dealing with things like batch, continuous-flow, discrete and mixed-model production.

Kaufman Global has worked across a wide range of industries and production models. To improve operations, we use a two-pronged approach: 1. We apply the right technique for the job to eliminate waste and variation, and 2. We engage and leverage the organization to get the work done faster and with better sustainment.

  • Lean implementation and leader development in Aerospace and Defense
  • Automotive factory turnaround – US and Europe
  • Model mix and productivity improvement in Tires – USA and Asia
