HOW I HELP MANUFACTURING BUSINESSES
My focus in work life is to improve the profitability of manufacturing businesses through either direct improvements or developing their capabilities to improve themselves. With 25 years as a professional engineer operating in senior roles across a variety of manufacturing sectors I am skilled and experienced at identifying and implementing operational improvement opportunities.
NEW REMOTE VIDEO ANALYSIS
2 to 5 x PRODUCTIVITY
If you are looking to make a step change to the throughput of a machine or manual manufacturing process, or resolve a product defect, then maybe I can help using slow motion video analysis.
I have achieved between 2 and 5 times throughput improvement without additional headcount and at no or minimal investment cost.
I can engage with your business to deliver operational improvements from simple opportunity analysis through detailed improvement plans to full project management. I engage in an open and transparent manner either, on a quote and deliver, or an on a percentage basis of an agreed calculation and verification of operational benefits.
If you want to seriously upgrade the capability of your staff to continuously improve your business then I can deliver a range of Improvement Apprenticeships. From Level 2 Lean Manufacturing Operative right up to L5 Improvement Specialist (Lean Six Sigma Black Belt).
I can deliver bespoke training on a whole range of manufacturing, maintenance and health and safety topics. I listen to your needs and provide a range of options that we can discuss in order to develop your team in the most appropriate way for your business.
I have over 25 years of experience in engineering and operational management roles across a range of industries. In 2017, I led a team to win the prestigious, national Manufacturing Champions Team Award beating fellow finalists Coca Cola, Glenmorangie and Weetabix.
In 2001 I became a certified Chartered Engineer and I have been a Fellow of the IMechE since 2010. Qualifications include a BEng in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sheffield and an MBA from Aston University. I also hold a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and a Nebosh General Certificate in Health & Safety.
