Typically of a profitable and growing business, A UK market leader believes there are always opportunities to improve performance. As a result, Hansaya Consulting were asked to carry out a study across the business to determine where and how large such opportunities actually were. The study identified that control of materials was generally good, but that there was potential to reduce direct labour costs through improvements to line efficiencies, line balancing and labour control. In addition, there was scope to make savings in overhead costs by removing non value-added management time.
The Hansaya team worked hand-in-hand with Operations, Supply Chain, Engineering and the senior team to implement a wide range of new ways of working as well as the “System For Management” (SFM) required to control the whole.
Actions Taken Operational excellence:
“We are now using their techniques to achieve savings beyond those which were part of the project
