“Within one week we had assessed the current state, set aspirations, formulated detailed action plan and communicated it to everyone.
The OAG assessment gave me a comprehensive review of the current state of the operation and an improvement plan focussed on the goals I want to achieve. The team enjoyed being involved and the factory as a whole have a greater understanding of the need to change.”

“We asked OAG to perform manufacturing due diligence on the potential acquisition of a manufacturing business in Suffolk.
Internally our buy-in team of four, with experience covering Marketing, Finance, HR factory management and manufacturing, we believed we had sufficient skills to have fully assessed the business we were considering acquiring. Fortunately, we decided to hire OAG, whose on-site team reviewed the operations over a period of 4 days and reported promptly to us. Their report identified opportunities for significant improvement but more importantly OAG identified costs and risks that our own review had missed. Their findings led us to change our offer and to justify that change. The vendor chose not to accept.
OAG saved us from a very costly mistake.”

“We asked R.I.M.E. to conduct an onsite assessment of our manufacturing operation and make recommendations to help us turn around its performance. The detailed analysis and information generated from their assessment model gave us the basis of a recovery plan.”
