Planning & Budgeting
Approval to move forward
Your company is planning to launch a new product or introduce a product extension and you need to increase your production capacity. You used to secure resources from your annual capital equipment budget with a quick payback calculation, and from your existing engineering and technical staff.
Our customers are finding that in today’s economic reality, the approval to proceed is not quite so easy. More and more, they are being asked to validate the solution they are recommending and demonstrate due diligence. And engineering resources aren’t as readily available as a result of right sizing and a focus on core competencies.
More than automation
ATS provides more than automation. Our manufacturing experts and design teams can supplement your team and help you identify opportunities, build business cases, provide financial justification, and plan your programs before you make significant investments.
Starting with a thorough appreciation of key stakeholders’ requirements, project success factors, and “know-why,” we will work with you to identify a selection of options. Next we will use analytics and modeling to deliver a final defendable recommendation.
succeeding at execution
Once a recommended course of action is identified and agreed upon in principle, we can help you develop your project budget and plan. Whether you’re considering a Greenfield project or working within the confines of an existing facility or room, we can help you plan for:
- Business interruption
- Equipment relocation
Your budget and schedule will include test materials, training costs, inventory build requirements, and start-up and ramp periods. Together we will develop a comprehensive project plan, setting you on the road to success.
