CONSULTANCY

Technical

We are often consulted for our independent technical input to factories, products and machinery.

Machine Maintenance

A proactive approach to the maintenance of machinery can make for reduced down time, increased productivity and reduced cost. We analyse a plant's machinery and facilities to develop an appropriate maintenance strategy. We use appropriate tools such as FMECA (Failure Mode Effect and Criticality Analysis) to establish a plant's needs.

Feasibility Study

When an inventor needs to investigate the potential for a new product, predict its market, the ability to make it and if it can be delivered at profit, then a feasibility study is called for. Similarly a manufacturing company may wish to conduct a feasibility study of a new product process prior to committing to a full scale operation.

Training

Appropriate and focussed training can enable individuals and teams. We prepare and deliver lectures and workshops on topics relating to niche areas of our expertise. These topics include Project Management, New Product Development, Process Development and Developing a Food Factory.

Trouble Shooting

We sometimes get asked to trouble shoot production problems or to investigate causes of frequent machinery breakdown. Our logical and analytical mindset combined with some objectivity leads to solutions.
