ENGINEERING STUDY

A detailed study of WHAT will increase quality productivity and reduce costs.

To identify and address your unique needs and opportunities, we begin each client partnership with a three step Discovery Phase. In doing so, nGROUP works with your executive and production teams to identify, define, seize and maximize improvement opportunities that strategically change workforce production and morale.Click To Get Your Free Productivity Study

The first two steps are a no-cost process of investigation. As intelligence is shared, we discover why and how an nGROUP partnership can provide substantial and immediate results. The Engineering Study is the last step and delves deeper into what specific solutions are recommended and what expectations can be met.

CUSTOMIZE THE PARTNERSHIP

Upon completion of the Engineering Study, implementation begins and a pathway to success is paved by implementing one of three partnership models.

Meet Business Objectives

The nGROUP Performance System (NPS) ngroupis a proprietary methodology and philosophy for achieving the results identified during the Discovery Phase. By applying, experiencing and modifying modern era approaches to increasing productivity, nGROUP has developed a winning formula for achieving results in labor intensive environments; thereby helping you achieve your business and corporate objectives. Such approaches and tools include:

  • 1  Shared Values and Vested® Interests
  • 2  Lean Six Sigma Principles
  • 3  Industrial Engineering Standards
  • 4  Innovative Technologies
  • 5  Resource Management & Employee Engagement

Modeled after Kate Vitasek’s Vested® business model, nGROUP partnerships work to create collaborative business relationships that enable win-win for both parties. Additionally, nGROUP applies the Lean Six Sigma methodology that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste combining lean manufacturing/lean enterprise and Six Sigma to eliminate the eight kinds of waste: Transportation, Inventory, Motion, Waiting, Over production, Over processing, Defects, and Skills.

Added to the Vested and Lean Six Sigma approaches is Industrial Engineering; whereas, nGROUP engineers optimize complex processes, systems and organizations by eliminating waste of time, money, materials, man-hours, machine time, energy and other resources that do not generate value. In order to deliver the necessary adjustments to any given process, nGROUP utilizes innovative technologies to both track, modify and report progress.

The nGROUP Performance System does more than provide proven methods and philosophies, it delivers the research, development AND the experienced professionals that make progress possible and immediate.

Experienced and Lean Six Sigma Professionals

Your dynamic environments require our team to be proficient in a variety of disciplines. The majority of our on-site leadership is Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certified. In addition, we have Black Belts and a Master Black Belt who is certified to train and certify others. All our performance coaches are skilled in the disciplines of work measurement, production planning, line balancing, micro movement techniques, flow/floor layout, Kaizen, Quality processes, Kanban/inventory, 5-Why/Root Cause analysis, Poke Yoke, 5-S, GMP, HAACP and food safety.

We have perfected managing performance largely because we don’t see ourselves as just managers, we are managers of process, and coaches of people. It is our ability to implement efficient systems, use technology, and coach motivated workers to peak performance that set us apart.
