Your business needs

The ability to make the same or more output using less material resources. Process variability is at the root of materials overconsumption. It originates process inefficiencies that result in production defects, procurement mistakes, wrong bills of materials…waste, in other words.

Our answer

Every business needs to find out whether its use of materials is adjusted to the minimum acceptable levels, or, on the other hand, overconsumption is present. Many companies set the minimum level based on historical consumptions or planned consumptions rather than based on optimum consumption. R&G can help you by baselining what that minimum level is, thus setting the standards. Once this calculation is understood and shared by all the necessary stakeholders, it is time to estimate the deviations between actual consumption and standards, and to create a system for relentlessly reducing or removing the sources of those deviations, thereby increasing material productivity.
