Our experts are more than consultants and engineers. They have the real-world operations experience to help them quickly uncover the root causes of performance issues and suggest pragmatic solutions. In addition to experience in work measurement, process design, facility layout and labor management – they are also highly-skilled in on-the-floor observation and assessment. And they are backed by an extended team of specialists in distribution strategy, design, material handling, engineering and systems.
Our teams leverage the Fortna DC Design Suite™, sophisticated analytic and modeling software that leads to data-driven insights. Our experts use this to gain a deeper understanding of the operation and get to a recommendation faster.
We understand that you need practical solutions that provide a quick return on investment. So our approach is highly collaborative – to help you gain buy-in from the stakeholders who will need to make and sustain the changes.
And we can help you implement the improvements so that you meet your goals for cost, throughput, productivity, accuracy and service, while producing a quick ROI.
