Production- and product development:
Many managers in manufacturing companies are very busy with arranging the daily routine. Often they do not have the time nor the expertise to identify organizational improvement in the technical field, start, supervise and commissioning.
The improvements can be aimed at the most reliable possible primary production process. Investments, maintenance and operation should be aimed at the highest possible availability of the production machines. Improvements can also relate to the efficiency of the production. How much energy, labour, equipment, capital, and the like are required to make the product. CATO will support companies in increasing the efficiency.
