Eliminate waste to reduce costs
“It’s minor details that define perfection. But perfection is all but a minor detail.”
– Henry Ford
Stocks of semi-finished products in the production area tie material and financial resources without creating value. It also means that areas of a warehouse are unnecessarily occupied and that more transport and handling work is generated, which in turn wastes resources that could be invested to add value. The scarcity of workforce, occupied by these wasteful tasks, causes bottlenecks and waiting times, errors accumulate, and urgent orders are delivered late.
In order to reduce these wastes, MATT & PARTNER consultants have a variety of industrial planning tools at their disposal: optimization of individual processes and value streams, optimized material flows and layout planning, design of efficient logistics centres and support for the selection of the right digital technologies and IT systems (MES, MRP, ERP, etc.).
We develop solutions that are based on international best practices and the latest scientific findings in the planning and organization of production and logistics systems.
