Increase productivity and optimize operational expenses


  • A large Russian producer of rubber products was looking for opportunities to increase productivity and optimize its operating costs


  • To conduct diagnostic analysis of productivity at one of the plants
  • To assess the potential to increase efficiency and identify measures by which these can be implemented

Our approach

  • Conducted express analytical-diagnosis of productivity at the pilot plant (bag and sleeve production), studying:
    • The balance of how productive power is distributed and converted
    • The efficient use of equipment
    • The efficient use of human resources
    • The effectiveness of quality control systems
    • The efficiency of repair management systems
  • The potential to increase labour productivity and reduce operational expenses was assessed and quantified, and initiatives to achieve the identified potential were developed


  • Production volumes were increased by 20% and labour costs reduced by 15%
  • Was recommended a complementary implementation plan for the developed measures
