Home » Sectors » Industrial Components
Industrial components are used in a variety of different industries. In many of these, the pressure for world class quality and performance is moving down to the lower levels in the supply chain. As a result, more and more industrial component manufacturers have found that it is essential to work with a partner who can assist them in ensuring that their products and processes are right first time. This should be based on a full review of all stages of the component’s lifecycle, from raw material evaluation and materials characterisation to product and process optimisation and failure. Efficient, better quality and more cost-effective processes are essential to scaling up to compete on a global scale.
This kind of process optimisation is a key requirement for both new and existing products and systems.
Industry Forum has over a decade of experience as industrial components business consultants supporting blue chip organisations within this sector, both in the UK and globally. Industry Forum has supported the development and introduction of global systems with clients, coached and developed internal resource to ensure sustainability and supported front line delivery of invasive lean or TPM programmes.
Examples of some of the techniques successfully deployed in client organisations within this Sector include:
The process to deliver these techniques is a collaborative one implemented through Industry Forum’s proven ‘Learn by Doing’ approach. The client’s team are initially led by IF Engineers through training and hands-on application of lean techniques through a series of workshops. They are then coached and mentored as they replicate the activities across their facility, leading their people in turn. This cascades the ‘know-how’ for delivering lean systems, grows ownership and embeds sustainability within the organisation.
Typical results achieved by clients working with our industrial components business consultants include;
Reduction in lead-time through the process
Improved safety, quality, delivery performance and cost effectiveness
Reduced start-up losses for large projects and new product / process introduction
Increased knowledge transfer to support sustained performance improvement
