INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING and DATA MODELING

Industrial Engineering

We examine the current state of things – how the systems interact with each other, if the processes run smooth, whether the resources (energy, money, time, knowledge, human resources) are used optimally or not, if the productivity is at its highest possible level, if the workers are safe, their tasks are properly and timely fulfilled, how much time they are idle, the frequency and cause of work-related incidents, the number of reported defects in a certain period of time, recalls or withdrawals, the manner in which the unsatisfied clients are treated, after-sales services, the percentage of waste, reuse, recycling etc..

First step is to clearly identify the problem and translate it into language understandable for all the departments involved. Then we get to the root of it, find out where it originates and why. We analyze the cause and its multiple effects, we propose the solution(s), run “what-if “scenarios, check how they affect other parts of the overall system, verify if the changes actually work for the stated problem, what are the costs of applying the solutions, assist their implementation and validate the changes over a certain period of time.

Data Modeling

We assist you in creating a data model for your data to be stored in a Database. Therefore, we can:
- create the workflow and data structure diagram (DSD);
- analyze which type of database model will optimally fit your needs;
- establish which database management system (DBMS) is best for you.
