Industrial Engineering

  • Help establish an industrial engineering function in your organization
  • Provide support in transition for sudden loss of key staff
  • Provide adhoc / regular support to organization
  • Provide training to upgrade staff
  • Provide audit to assess integrity of data and procedures compliance
  • Capacity application for fast response
  • Client’s representative

What Can An Industrial Engineering Function Do For Your Organization?

Capacity Database

  • Products’ process flows (or recipes) analysis (commonalities and differences): product characteristics, adders, customization, shared equipment capacity, interdependent process steps, merged products)
  • Time measurement (elemental steps within each equipment, optimal cycle time, natural rate degradation, dependency factors, repeatability, drivers for performance, and other factors)
  • Equipment inventory and capabilities (for different product categories/customers, uptime, tool change/replenishment, calibration, setup time)
  • Tooling inventory and capabilities (for different product devices/versions/equipment models)
  • Program specific cycle-time, outsourced capacity, yield based capacity, reworks, capacity based on defects probability
  • Formula driven theoretical capacity

Capacity Planning

  • Computation dependent on equipment dedicated to product(s), shared concurrently by products, with batch/unit based loading, reconfigurable (with/without setup)
  • Line balancing, product allocation, lot size considerations, production line management issues
  • Spreadsheet, application based capacity model

Demand Fulfilment

  • Forecast demand driven capacity, product/customer allocation demand driven capacity, revenue/profit demand driven capacity, backlog driven capacity
  • Scenario analysis, fast changing forecast demand

Manpower Planning

  • Machines manning analysis, human factors, labour regulations, health and safety requirements, product mix forecast demand driven, learning curve, automation, productivity plans, cross training, multi skilled, attrition, optimal allocation

Materials Usage Requirement Planning

  • Establish theoretical materials usage formula with factors, identify drivers of usage rate and wastage for productivity improvement. Materials include direct, indirect and consumables.


  • Work Cell space optimization, space indices by product, forecast demand space requirement
  • Layout concepts: Maximum asset utilization, minimum materials cycle time, hybrid for optimal utilization and cycle time, new product line introduction, flexibility for fast changing demand and frequent relayout.
  • LEAN concept: integrating materials, WIP, indirect materials, people and safety to minimize storage space, travel time, manual labour and increase traceability, safety, lower utility costs and productivity.
  • Project Management to ensure that the scope of work if completed timely and within budget.

Productivity and Product Unit Cost Improvement

  • Identify the major cost concerns.
  • Identify drivers for rate of usage and other cost components.
  • Establish productivity programs for task force teams
  • Program Management to ensure that various projects are ultimately achieving the targeted benefits.
