PROJECT MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Continuum's Project Management Services are designed to support clients with managing major change within their distribution and manufacturing operations. Leveraging a PMO consulting resource allows the business to stay focused on meeting order-fulfillment, productivity, throughput and quality goals while major initiatives are led to successful implementations.
While Continuum's experience in identifying and implementing continuous improvement initiatives is extensive, building a framework and culture within organizations to internally pinpoint, validate install and manage Continuous Improvement initiatives provides lasting benefit. Continuum will help to create a CI structure, build the necessary internal team, provide PMO support to manage the program and transition leadership to the client once an improvement culture has solidified. These engagements not only drive significant improvement across the operations but installs internal capability to manage future client improvements.
Operational processes and systems are constantly challenged with opportunities for change, which need to be evaluated prior to implementation to determine overall impact, effort and benefit to organizations. Left unmanaged, operational efficiency of organizations deteriorates due to lack of change control and adoption of process and system modifications that do not result in net improvement across the manufacturing or distribution environment. Continuum specializes in designing and implementing change control management, processes and plans to ensure future improvements deliver the desired positive impact for clients.
When deciding to invest in a new system for your supply chain network, properly evaluating and selecting the right solution for your company is extremely critical. A well executed selection process ensures the best long-term systems partner with the right system capabilities and a cost-effective solution are identified for the client. While each systems provider likely believes their software or software suite is the best solution for every client, every software is unique with differing strengths, weaknesses and capabilities and each must be properly vetted with the client's business needs through an effectively managed Supply Chain Systems Selection.
The flexibility of today's Supply Chain Management Systems support highly customizable system configuration, so choosing the right partner to help identify, evaluate and establish the right system design for the client is critical to long-term viability and return on investment when it comes to system implementation. Continuum has been successfully supporting and managing System Design & Configuration projects for our clients for decades now with a primary focus on understanding the business needs of the client and ensuring that the system design reflects the current and future critical operational capabilities for supply chain success.
Installing Supply Chain Management Systems is a complex effort requiring project management of a multitude of operational and IT resouces and supply chain execution specialists focused on driving the change management across the network. Continuum focuses on creating alignment between people, process and systems during System Implementation projects to support successful integrations and sustainable results during these transformational initiatives. Our team has the expertise, capability and drive to ensure system implementation is effective and properly executed to meet scheduled deliverables.
Properly designed automation solutions should drive operational efficiency, improved quality, increased service and enhanced accuracy across a supply chain. But too often failures to fully vet and prove out automation solutions result in the opposite impacts; requiring modifications post-implementation to ensure the benefits of the automation solution can be realized. Given Continuum's experience transitioning manual to automated processes across supply chains, we are uniquely qualified to quickly vet different automation options and best-fit a solution to meet our clients needs.
Automation Implementation brings the complexity of a new technology with the change management requirements of people, processes and systems efforts to incorporate the automated solution into new or existing operations. Installation, testing, training, POC evaluations and operational impact assessments are all critical components to ensure effective and efficient automation solutions are incorporated within operational processes and adopted by operational management. Continuum's team is highly experienced with automation implementations and is capable of managing these projects to successful implementations.
When companies need to install new operations to meet operational demands or changing client service requirements, having professionals there to design, plan, implement and launch operations accounting for people, process, systems and MHE components is critical in success. Continuum manages New Operation Launch initiatives for clients who want a return on their investment and need to achieve operational efficiency so the project meets expectations. Our extensive operational knowledge and implementation capabilities will ensure the new operation meets the needs of the business.
Launching a new facility is an exciting time for a business, but it can also be challenging expanding the network while continuing to meet current operational demands. From launching greenfield construction facilities to fulfilling the first order through the new site, Continuum can project manage Facility Start-Up engagements and let our clients run their business while we ensure their expansion projects meet budget, schedule and design expectations.
