My goals for consulting - I help companies to reduce waste by improving their geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) on their drawings and their dimensional management process.
The results are typically: reduced time to production, fewer changes after start-up, lower product costs, increased product quality.
As I work with companies from many industries, I continue to see vast amounts of time, resources, and money wasted. Often because the employees do not define or inspect parts properly, or the organizations' dimensional management process is flawed.
My approach to consulting - I focus on understanding your business objectives and the issues and obstacles in your organization before offering solutions. When you contact me, I will probably ask you a long list of questions designed to help me understand the objectives you want to achieve, the issues you want to explore, and obstacles you want to overcome. It may seem like my questions challenge the organizations judgement. In the past some clients rushed to the wrong solutions, because they didn't thoroughly understand the issues and obstacles preventing them from reaching their goals. I don't want to do this to you. I don't want to offer proposals until I have confidence that they will benefit your organization.
Every company is unique and there is not a single solution for improving dimensional management, a cookie cutter approach leaves a lot of opportunity sitting on the table.
A system approach - It is important to document the dimensional management process and get buy-in from the various parts of the organization. By using a system approach to dimensional management, great improvements can be realized in reduced time to production, fewer changes after start-up, lower product costs, increased product quality.
