Redwood is working with companies in continuous and discrete manufacturing operations to effectively deal with important manufacturing and supply chain management issues and to achieve positive outcomes while avoiding the risks and pitfalls that inhibit manufacturing excellence.
We help our customers identify and implement programs, processes, and enablers that drive their pursuit of operational excellence. These manufacturers are all focused on trimming their waste streams including material losses, process yields, energy losses, wasted labor and quality costs. These problems need to be attacked both in real-time as well as with long term continuous improvement initiatives.
Reducing costs has always been a focus in manufacturing industries. By helping our clients innovate with new approaches and new enablers, they are gaining traction with cost reduction and continuous improvement at levels they had not previously attained. In addition, they are implementing the fundamentals necessary to sustain the ground they gain.
Most of our initiatives are focused on the introduction of technology to enable change. Yet a significant area of cost for manufacturing companies is with is the total cost of ownership for Information Technology. Most clients find themselves with a large and diverse portfolio of both home grown and purchased applications, of varying vintage and technology, with wildly varying degrees of standardization or integration.
Redwood empowers these manufacturing firms with a way to get a handle on the spiraling cost of technology ownership. Our goal is to provide our clients with manageable, consistent and sustainable portfolio of hardware, software and associated processes. This portfolio must be closely aligned with the company's business goals, support the company's crucial business processes, while at the same time delivering the enablers that will help the operation move forward and become a better manufacturer.
Redwood Infotek has strongly maintained our vendor neutrality. Our opinion is that we will work to find you the best solution of your situation rather than cloud the issue over shaving off a few points and hardware, software or services.
