Problem solving in the operations or manufacturing sector is a crucial part of maintaining or improving business output.  Operations and manufacturing problem resolution is the heart of supply chain management; when these departments encounter obstacles, everything else stops.  As a result, solving problems within the operations or manufacturing department is uniquely challenging and urgent. At Kepner-Tregoe, we realize how critical it is for problem solving solutions to be focused on the operations department, while still incorporating strong resolution methods at all levels of the enterprise.

Our clients face significant operational problem solving challenges brought about by limited resources, cost pressures from global competition, and demand fluctuation. Kepner-Tregoe’s step-by-step decision making model gives manufacturers a competitive advantage far beyond efficiency improvement alone. By developing operations leaders and teaching departmental problem solving methods, Kepner-Tregoe creates sustainable excellence in manufacturing and operations departments.

Kepner-Tregoe provides proven analytics and data driven process improvement methodologies which, when coupled with our problem solving framework and facilitated implementation; deliver quantifiable and sustainable improvements in the areas such as  safety performance, asset optimization, quality improvement, unit cost reduction, and project execution.  This translates into a more productive, more effective operation that helps our clients achieve excellence.
