Gross Profit Improvement 101 Series Post 2 – Rework

It is our experience from using our Rapid Profit Radar Diagnostic, that approximately 50% of businesses that make things and 20% of businesses providing services have issues with rework.

The main issues are:

  1. Lack of or out-of-date processes.
  2. A lack of training or simply not following the processes.
  3. Plant and equipment that is no longer fit for purpose.
  4. Using out of scope or defective materials.
  5. Rushing.

Into The Blue NZ Limited are experts in finding the reasons for rework.  We have added – and continue to add – significant additional Gross Profit to businesses of all sizes and in every type of industry, by identifying the reasons for, and then applying the remedies for, rework.  As mentioned above, reduced profit caused by rework is a very common issue in the Business World and finding and implementing the solutions – which include implementing or improving business processes – is our bread and butter.

Please note that it is not always commercially viable to completely remove rework.  The cost to remove the last 1 to 3% can sometimes far exceed the benefit.

We always run a Zero-Risk policy with our customers… No Profit Improvement – No Fees.
