Here stands an opportunity to progressively excel your company ahead of the pack with futuristic skills, ideas and knowledge to help you adjust to these changing times.
The Changes We’ve Seen
Our consultants in the manufacturing and services field have experienced a change clients’ needs and wants. Clients no longer ask for engineers, they are increasingly asking for Continuous Improvement Engineers to keep up with the fast-moving market. Growth in Lean, Kaizen and 5S in this sector has contributed to the move toward ‘continual improvement’. These business processes act as paths to plan automation systems, and have been proven as the most efficient. Many international companies have adopted these processes, New Zealand however, is just realizing the immediate need for change,
The core idea of any manufacturing company is quite simple, to work on eliminating waste from the manufacturing process. Automation is used to automate routine tasks, eliminate waste, reduce cycle times, improve quality and achieve a systematic approach for continual improvement. We have seen fewer operator roles and more automated focused roles. Why? Modern regulations, new technology, market growth and material costs have created stiff competition within the industry. Companies are continuously trying to find new ways to improve their systems and many have recently shifted to automation as the most efficient manufacturing process.
Change within the industry is only set to speed up, creating an even tougher competitive environment. To stay ahead of the pack and to see what knowledge you can hire, contact our experienced consultants who are always available to talk.
