Manufacturing operations consultants

About DeHart

WE ARE

A group of operations management consultants focused on helping manufacturing clients compete in today's very volatile marketplace.


SENIOR EXPERIENCE

Each partner is a senior individual (20 years minimum experience in business process re-engineering, strategic procurement, and operations management) who operates for the benefit of the client.
Each partner has expertise in an area of operations management, lean manufacturing, and manufacturing cost reduction, which is critical to the specific needs of each operations management project.
Partner skills include Strategic Procurement, Lean Factory & Warehouse Design, Product and Manufacturing Cost Reduction, and manufacturing software services.

CONSULTING APPROACH

Our aim is to combine the client company's expertise in its market with our expertise in world class lean manufacturing strategies to achieve results that allow the company to out-learn and out-compete its competition.

Most successful companies are customer-focused and De Hart Consulting capitalizes on this by simplifying the client company's internal processes, reducing manufacturing costs and allowing it to turn wasted resources into customer wins.

Most suppliers are also customer focused and DeHart Consulting capitalizes on this by using strategic procurement to market the company's potential and form strong supplier partnerships.

DeHart Consulting focuses on swift and cost effective implementation of operations management change, not paper studies or open-ended recommendations.
