DFT Factory Transformation

DFT Factory Transformation


Does your factory have the flexibility, speed and response to keep pace with changing market dynamics?

At what cost are you meeting your customer requirements?

Are your lean projects driving results to the bottom line?

Is your factory truly Demand Driven with full Pull production capabilities?

Traditional scheduling techniques are embedded as the planners’ method of choice in many companies. The master schedule, overly reliant on inaccurate forecasts, mirrors the unresponsive nature of the factory floor. Outdated MRP principles and factory focused lean initiatives contribute little to the flexibility and speed and response needed to keep pace with variable and sometimes volatile customer demand. As a result, companies, similar to your organization, are only able to maintain customer service levels through holding inventory buffers throughout production and in Finished Goods.

In the factory actual work content is probably measured in seconds, minutes or hours.  Certainly not the multiple days or weeks that products seem to take through manufacturing.  With manufacturing delays, actual customer demand is further distanced from the daily plant performance and execution.

This is all too typical in the factories we visit and work within, there is just a huge gap between customer expectations and production capability.

Demand Driven Procurement & Supplier Integration
DFT Flow Design Demand Flow Factory


The goal of any company running is to have an agile production facility that is adaptive to changes in daily demand and one that is aligned to the entire Supply Chain.  Your facility needs to become truly demand driven and transition itself away from the business processes that force production environments to add significant costs to the business.  Transform your manufacturing operations to deliver improvements in working capital, operating cost and customer service levels through the deployment of High Impact’s best-in-class DFT methodologies for total DFT Factory Transformation.

DFT flow lines are designed to be balanced to support agility and flexibility.  Through design, over-production is eliminated, flow is established reducing lead times and as a consequence WIP and Finished Goods inventories are reduced improving the organizations Working Capital position.  Customer service levels are increased as a direct result of improved planning processes, improved levels of response through manufacture, agility, and adaptability to changes in demand. Our demand driven strategies will enable your manufacturing operations to meet market-driven requirements drastically reducing response times, inventory requirements and waste creating a competitive advantage in your marketplace.


Our demand driven strategies have their foundation in DFT enabling your organization to respond faster and more efficiently to the needs of your customers and the marketplace.  Our focus is directed at using our mathematical-based toolset to simulate and design Mixed-Model production processes that are balanced and flexible linking them directly to changes in daily demand.

High Impact’s DFT methodologies enable companies to synchronize every manufacturing process to changing demand on a daily basis.  We create mixed-model flow with optimized resources within manufacturing supported by dynamically material replenishment strategies to achieve a faster and repeatable response to daily demand.  With more repeatable response cycles that are synchronized to the daily demand, we can transform global organizations enabling them to gain control of previously out of balance factories, high levels of inventory, and spiraling operational costs.

To survive in today’s competitive marketplace organizations like yours must become more responsive to customer demand while maintaining profitability.
