The purpose for employing Engineering Optimization is to improve
the overall performance of a particular product or manufacturing process and to improve
the engineering process itself, providing a foundation for better products and processes
in the future.
Provides the tools necessary to quickly respond to changing
customer needs and new product requirements.
Builds an understanding of traditional vs. new engineering approaches.
Provides an understanding of "proactive", rather than "reactive",
Kaizen Improvement Action (ImpAct) teams are coached through a
fast-paced process to identify opportunities, experiment with multiple solutions and then
implement quick-hit service or operating improvements - in just one week! The ImpAct
project method can be used to guide a single team for rapid accomplishment of a one-time
project, or to support an organization-wide move to continuous improvement.
Small victories, added together, contribute to astonishing levels
of improvement. Paybacks of 10:1 are the norm and often exceed 100:1.
Higher internal and external customer satisfaction.
Reduce defects by more than 75%.
Standardize methods to ensure consistent results.
Reduce waste by more than 75%.

methods necessary to document, analyze, develop, and implement improvements and
measurement to a critical business process.
Focuses attention on a methodology for process management.
Sends an important signal to members of the organization that
management is committed to culture improvement.
The purpose of process re-engineering is to eliminate high pain,
high waste business processes. This workshop equips a Process Team with the knowledge,
skills, and methods necessary to work effectively as a team with the ability to document,

customer and to the future of the organization.
Provides a realistic approach to managing human and material
The purpose for employing Statistical Process Control is to
monitor and reduce the variation in the critical variables of a process, to improve the
process itself, providing a foundation for better products and services in the future.
Provides the tools necessary to understand the sources of
variation in a process.
Builds an understanding of "Quality Control" (vs)
Provides an understanding of the economic impact of variation.
