I will support you in preparing, planning and/or implementation of your national or international projects, by applycation of professional project management methods and tools. However, the project responsibility and control will remain with you.
My skills and competences are in the fields of technical consultancy, project identification, feasibility, due dilligence, planning and implementation of your new or already started production projects or projects to optimize production in the fields of chemical, pharmaceutical and food production.
I will act as project coach, supporting activities of your national or international projects.
In some specific cases, I can also take over a leadership role as project leader, if desired and requested by you.
As a project coach, I will ensure that the project progress is measured and documented properly, Key Project Indicators (KPI’s) are checked and project milestones achieved. And in addition, I perform project reviews as required by your management or steering committee as neutral external.
In many cases, additional production volumes can be made available by process optimization of existing production facilities.
The methods of "de-bottlenecking" are diverse and range from organizational measures, improvement of process control technology up to execution of small projects which specifically eliminate bottlenecks in your production facility. Often you can postpone expensive new projects into the future, generating value for your company with minimum capital spending.
An analysis of the production processes with your employees from production, development and logistics, in order to identify and quantify the bottlenecks and to identify ways of optimization, would be the important first step.
Have you ever considered your alternatives to run a new project? In many cases you can get out more throughput from existing installations, more than you think! By optimizing them!
Process optimization is not sufficient
needed new technology or products
planned new site
a required certification (GMP, FDA..)
property is available
existing facility in good condition
sharing of infrastructure
and staff possible - synergies
enough space is given
