With proven senior industry experts on board, RiverRouge combines classical Quality Engineering skills with Lean Manufacturing Principles and often simple common sense to solve internal quality problems and stabilise volatile manufacturing processes.
Effective planning processes are the starting point for efficient and robust manufacturing operations. Our team does not only recognise the importance and the big picture of this function but also it’s major influence on process robustness and reliability.
It does this by improving flow efficiency first and then improves the resource efficiency to reduce operational expenses. Flow efficiency in this case is the speed a product or service runs through a process from end to end. Resource efficiency is the level of value-added utilisation of the resources (operators and equipment) in each of the process steps.learn more
The methodology works with a standardised logical sequence of analysis steps (DMAIC) to ensure the problem solving process has a high chance of success.learn more
Conventional accounting systems do not always provide the right support for TOC, or lean-based efforts. We recommend to steer away from traditional measures derived from the "product cost" accounting methods.learn more
