Manufacturing Process Improvement

Inability to meet lead-times can result in increased hours and higher delivery charges to deliver products/systems as well as the possibility of not meeting scheduled project times. Cogent Consulting will help you by applying lean manufacturing processes, ultimately reducing defects, rejects, scrap and decreasing manufacturing time, as well as ensuring the delivery of a repeatable, consistent quality products/systems on time to the end user.

We can assist with the delivery of an optimised process which yields a quality product/system at a lower price, while increasing profits. An enhanced process maximises employee motivation and satisfaction whilst guaranteeing a standard process that will run as designed, with new issues being quickly identified and resolved.

We can help with:

  • Manufacturing Strategy - designing systems that integrate innovative technologies, materials and control systems to allow manufacture of quality products at a lower cost
  • Factory Improvement - factory layout/flow optimisation
  • Creating Innovative Processes - exploiting new materials and technologies to create new processes that deliver enhanced quality and time frame
  • Footprint Optimisation - examining the quantity and geographic dispersion of your facilities and adjusting their number and location to reduce duplication, inefficiency or overlap
  • Complexity Reduction - analysing drivers and key market trends focused on simplifying operations best practice and benchmarking against Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of manufacturing complexity reduction
  • Implementation of Bespoke Manufacturing Equipment -  assisting in the design and development of new systems to create, assemble and test new products 
  • Manufacturing System Integration  - integrating processes, equipment, controls and staff to provide efficient systems embedded in standard processes
  • Network Operation Performance  - enhancing your manufacturing networks, through detailed audits of architecture, investment and key performance indicators
  • Manufacturing Transformation - reengineering existing manufacturing systems by implementing new technologies, to help cut cost, improve performance and increase growth


  • Reduced costs
  • Shorter manufacturing times
  • Reduction in waste
  • Enhanced supply chain networks
  • Bespoke optimised systems
  • Reduction in resources
