Deep-dive Analysis

We analyze all the company’s departments and processes, taking into account both internal activities and the final customers’ experience. This assessment allows us to identify the current performance at each stage of the process and critical points that need to be improved.

How we do it

Defining key objectives and goals: Establishing specific and attainable goals that the company seeks to achieve and that are aligned with its long-term vision. These objectives are vital, as they enable the company to focus its efforts and measure success.

Analyzing the current organizational culture: Detailed assessment of the values, beliefs, behaviors, and practices that shape the company's work environment. Understanding the organizational culture is crucial to implementing successful changes and aligning strategies with the existing culture.

Evaluating the performance of the current processes: Comprehensive review of the internal processes to identify their level of efficiency, identify bottlenecks or areas for improvement, and determine whether they’re aligned with the organizational objectives.

Defining key performance indicators (KPIs): Identifying and establishing specific metrics to measure the progress made towards the defined objectives. These KPIs are instrumental in assessing performance and adjusting strategies when necessary.

Evaluating the company’s tools and technologies: Analyzing the tools, systems, and technologies that are used in the business processes to determine their effectiveness, efficiency, and alignment with strategic goals.

Defining the key project areas: Identifying priority areas that require immediate attention or where the changes or improvements will be focused.

Evaluating customer satisfaction and expectations: Gathering data and analyzing the customers’ perceptions of the company’s products and services, and their overall experience. This is essential for adjusting strategies and improving customer relationships.


We are focused on aligning the institution’s organizational culture with the continuous improvement mindset to achieve transformation and operational excellence.

Innovation and Digitalization

Defining, designing, and implementing sources of data: Identifying, designing, and establishing various data sources that will be used to collect relevant information. This involves determining what data is needed, how it will be collected and stored, and how it will be accessed.

Flow design and implementation: Creating a smooth and efficient process for moving the data through the different stages, from initial collection to storage, processing, and analysis. This ensures that the data is effectively transferred throughout the system.

Creating a data lake: Establishing an infrastructure or environment that is suitable for storing large volumes of data in a secure and accessible manner. This "data lake" allows data to be centralized and organized, facilitating its analysis and use.

Modeling indicators for decision-making: Developing specific models and metrics that will be used to evaluate performance and provide key information for the decision-making process. These indicators are based on the collected and processed data.

Determining automated decisions: Implementing automated systems or processes based on predefined rules or algorithms that use data and indicators to make operational decisions. This enables quick and efficient responses to specific situations without direct human intervention.

Planning and Programming

Designing and implementing the S&OP (Sales and Operations Planning) model: Developing and implementing a comprehensive process that integrates sales and operations planning to better coordinate demand and production capacity. This model ensures closer alignment between the sales, marketing, finance, and operations departments.

Planning and scheduling model: Creating a detailed model for scheduling activities within the company, enabling better coordination of resources, time, and activities. This may include optimizing the production schedules, the allocation of resources, and inventory management, among other aspects.

Designing the capacity plan tool: Developing a specific tool for planning the production capacity, taking into account available resources, projected demand, and other relevant factors. This tool helps optimize the company's operating capacity.

Implementing the MRP (Material Requirements Planning) / MPS (Master Production Schedule) / FCE (Finite Capacity Scheduling) models: Implementing specific computer systems or models for material requirements planning, master production scheduling, and finite capacity scheduling. These models help to efficiently manage the company’s materials, production, and available resources.

Line Engineering

Line balancing and work design: Process aimed at efficiently distributing tasks and activities among the workers and workstations, with the objective of minimizing bottlenecks, maximizing productivity, and reducing waiting times.

Time and task studies: Detailed analysis and accurate measurement of the time required to perform each task or activity within a process. This involves carefully studying the work methods, the time required to complete a task and the employees’ performance.

Constraints analysis: Identifying and evaluating the limiting factors or restrictions within the company’s production processes or operations. These may be limited resources, insufficient capacities, or any other factor that hinders efficiency.

Layout redesign and defining the CAPEX: Reorganizing the physical design and distribution of the elements within a plant or workspace to improve efficiency and optimize workflow. Defining the CAPEX (capital expenditure) refers to identifying and budgeting investments in long-term assets, such as machinery, equipment, or infrastructure, that are needed to implement design changes and improve efficiency.


Designing and implementing high-performance teams: Creating and implementing teams that focus on maximizing their performance and productivity. This involves identifying complementary skills, managing conflicts, and ensuring effective collaboration and motivation to achieve optimal results.
