We Make Your China Factory Set-up a Success in the Following Locations

Is your factory unable to make enough good parts to meet your customers’ demands, and is it causing serious problems? This is the most common reason why a factory turnaround becomes a must.

We have been involved in a number of similar situations and we usually need to follow a three step approach.

Getting production back on track NOW

One thing cannot wait: increasing the number of quality products the factory is shipping. The current situation is costing you a lot of money (sending products by plane, expediting some production batches…) and you might lose significant business from an important customer.

We first study the situation and decide what is the main cause of the issues — for example a poor process control system, poor maintenance, ineffective testing, insufficient equipment and workforce, and so on.

Quality-and-Capacity

Getting quality and capacity up to standards

Once production is back on track, other fundamental gaps need to be addressed — usually working on quality improvements and a process improvement plan (see the presentations of these other practice area of CMC).

Quality and capacity also depend greatly on what the component suppliers are delivering. We often see severe quality issues coming from suppliers, as well as inappropriate supplier management on the part of the purchasing department.

Fighting margin erosion over time

Once the pressing issues have been addressed, it is time to ensure the factory is well organized and positioned for profitable growth in the future. Is the amount of workers adequate, and should we re-engineer some processes? Are planning and purchasing supporting production efficiency? What other wastes can be taken out of the business?

Turning around a factory in China is a very hard exercise. It is a lot of work. Prioritization is key. Consultants typically have to manage the sensitivities of several parties, and need to know when and whom to push. But we have delivered good results to several clients in similar situations in the past. It is possible!
