Operations

With both feet on the floor

We help your company to build a better and future-proof manufacturing. We draw the bigger picture of your operations/production network and scrutinize the details. Relying on all the necessary tools to analyze and optimize your operations, our people really make the difference: they make it happen.

Network?

Is my operations network still consistent with my needs?

Ideal?

Am I getting the best out of my operations?

Tomorrow?

Are my people ready to leap into tomorrow’s operations?

Our approach

Mikael Pensaert, operations expert

“With both our feet literally on the floor”

“We like to have both our feet literally on the floor, in your manufacturing plant or warehouse. We combine a helicopter view with a keen eye for detail. We never hesitate to talk to the people on the factory floor and will walk a mile in their shoes to gain an overview: that’s how we deliver the solution that best fits the customer’s operations specifications and needs.

With our hands-on mindset we make things happen! Changing people’s mentality is never easy. Luckily, we have our MOUNTK methodology for dealing with change.”

Digital impact on operations

Industry 4.0, or the new industrial digital revolution, is becoming a reality. Autonomous robots, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud technologies, big data and augmented reality are merging with “yesterday’s manufacturing”. We help you to take full advantage of these innovations, and guide your people so they can adapt to – and even enjoy – the challenges that lie ahead.
