Manufacturing Problem Solving

Kepner-Tregoe problem solving consultants understand that consistently successful problem solving in today’s global manufacturing environments is a challenge.  With so much attention on lean manufacturing, cost-cutting and staff reduction, there is a premium afforded to any problem solving system that can both develop employees and is applicable across the operating enterprise.  Kepner-Tregoe’s problem solving and decision making training focuses on manager development and team building. Its problem solving consulting services make this training scalable with the ability to be implemented across the company.

The Kepner-Tregoe method for manufacturing problem solving takes into account the specific pressures faced in manufacturing operations to find business solutions in every level of the manufacturing process.  The pressures brought about by limited resources, cost pressures from global competition and ever segmented customer demand are challenging and powerful forces that can cause large inefficiencies in productivity.  Each company’s problem solving methodology must recognize how these challenges affect manufacturing.
