Why would you need an outside party like Harford?

In many instances, an internal performance review or a checklist review is not sufficient to achieve an objective picture of the line performance, to spot the early warning signals regarding business failure, and to identify key growth opportunities. That’s where an external, independent perspective helps.

Understanding the root cause(s) for material losses and the impact a 1% reduction of cost of sales can have is key for manufacturing performance improvement and financial growth.

One of our Lean Six Sigma experts will perform an in-depth review on site, to provide you with:

– an independent assessment of your weight control approach
– opportunities for waste reduction
– unbiased advice in areas such as compliance and performance improvement

Here are two examples of how we have helped manufacturers previously
by simply reviewing their processes and providing guidance


Case 1 – incorrect checkweigher setup

A food manufacturer was relying on in-line checkweighers to ensure that no underweight products leave site. However, they had inadvertently set the reject limits below the legally acceptable T1/T2 limit. It only took one look at the existing limits by our trained advisor to notice something was off, and to suggest an easy correction!

Case 2 – unnecessary risk

At a drinks manufacturer, we noticed that through various iterations of their paperwork, an unnecessary calculation had been added to their manual weight control process. Depending on circumstances, this meant they were potentially underfilling or giving away their high-value product. All it took was the adjustment of a formula to ensure they were back in the realms of legal compliance.
