Production

Strategic aspects of production and its challenges in companies with growing demand.

Below is the detail of some Production developments implemented by the professionals of Shocron Benmuyal & Associates in different companies and countries. These developments are implemented within the framework of the Management Processes and not in isolation, which guarantees the achievement of the results sought by the company.

.

PROCESS REDESIGN

Processes are designed at a certain time, for certain goals and with certain technology, and entropy inevitably causes them to lose competitiveness and profitability. SB&A Management applies its own models combined with lean tools, benchmarking, process improvement and reengineering, to determine the sequence of competitive redesigns throughout the years of evolution.

.

.

CONSTRAINT MANAGEMENT

Every process has components that rarely balance properly, but usually one of them is the focus of the restriction of the whole. This is enhanced in growth processes because each growth and investment inevitably changes the focus of constraints  from one point to another, and therefore SB&A Management always designs a sequence that manages and optimizes them. 

.

.

AUTOMATIONS

The developments of Shocron Benmuyal & Associates aim at the growth of companies, and generate a demand for more production with each advance. Our processes provide spaces for the development of production, based on a combination of more and better qualified jobs, and automations that multiply the impact of that labor force, and therefore combinations of these factors can be designed.

.

.

MANAGEMENT BY TEAMS

Most work processes in companies should be based on teamwork, however, many models are oriented exclusively to individuals. In SB&A Management we understand the company as a large orchestra and not a group of soloists, so our models are simultaneously oriented to the individual and his contribution of value to the result of the team which he belongs.

.

.

STRUCTURAL EFFICIENCY

The search for operational efficiency at each point is linearly opposed to the efficiency of the whole and, therefore, of the profitability of investments and results. In Shocron Benmuyal & Associates we integrate these models to the general strategic scheme of the companies, and their responsible are integrated to the management teams of the organizations.

.

.

OPERATIONAL RELOCATIONS

Companies with double-digit annual growth in a large number of cases require relocating their operations to a bigger place, better prepared and projected facility for the next stage, but they also need to achieve these relocations with a substantially low impact on their operation. SB&A Management has extensive experience in different industries and countries with this type of design.

.

.

LOGISTICS OPTIMIZATION

In logistics periodically appear physical and technological changes whose implementation is complex and costly, but also to do so generates important improvements, and even more not to do so in the long term becomes a competitive disadvantage. The strategic models of Shocron Benmuyal & Associates approach logistics optimization as a task that periodically must be reengineered and reach a new optimum.

.

.

DEVELOPMENT OF OPERATING CAPACITY

Expansion processes require an increase in operating capacity, not so early as to generate unnecessary costs, nor so slow as to damage the market and the company’s image. The development of the operative capacity, without high idle capacity and with wide capacity of evolution, is one of the characteristics of the developments of Shocron Benmuyal & Associates.

.

.

BALANCED SCORECARDS

The approach of Shocron Benmuyal & Associates is not focused on the design for a managerial presentation but on the result. Therefore, the structure of the balanced scorecards is oriented to be simple, strong, easy to manage and maintain, focused on providing a tool in which each person who uses them can adjust their decisions to achieve the result.

.

.

LABOR UNION INTEGRATION

In a significant number of sectors, several strategic management developments involve areas with unionized workers. In these cases, from productivity to clustering, including compensation systems and other tools, Shocron Benmuyal & Associates teams participate directly in the relationship with union leaders and members whenever requested.

.

.

DATA AND MANAGEMENT INFORMATION

Transactional information is well covered in almost all companies, and in those cases where it is not, Shocron Benmuyal & Associates collaborates with its systems teams in the improvement and solution. But also new developments imply new challenges, for this reason in most of the companies the model includes working with data for the development of tools and strategic management systems.

.

.

PERFORMANCE EVALUATION MODELS

Most people work honestly and with the conviction that they are doing their job properly, although in many cases the company’s interpretation differs. Shocron Benmuyal & Associates has developed over the years a significant range of performance evaluation schemes that allow communicating the company’s interests for each position and the satisfaction about the performance of each person in it.

.

.

PURCHASING MODEL

SB&A Management’s purchasing models are adapted to the different types of requirements and supplier-customer relationships of each industrial or service activity. These models range from the simplest and most integrated version, to cases in which supplier selection, pricing and contract determination, recurrent purchasing, and inbound logistics are managed independently and in a coordinated manner.

.

.

OUTSOURCING

The outsourcing models implemented by SB&A Management in its processes have two focuses. Outsourcing of non-strategic issues reduces unnecessary investments and allows to focus on key issues. The outsourcing of strategic issues allows a balance of investments and specialist management, and coordinates with strong evaluation and follow-up models.

.

.

STRATEGIC COST MANAGEMENT

Traditional companies usually structure their costs to accrue expenses, which is undoubtedly very useful to meet accounting and tax needs, but they do not usually provide what is necessary for most management decision-making processes. Therefore, Shocron Benmuyal & Associates models provide a complementary and alternative approach oriented to the main managerial and profitability problems.

.

.

SUPPLIERS INTEGRATION TO THE STRATEGY

The development of disruptive and growth strategies requires committed and involved suppliers. Shocron Benmuyal & Associates models generate a framework of trust and respect that allows sharing information, integrating developments, reducing investments and planning the future of a highly competitive business ecosystem.
