Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) – Several widely accepted methodologies, including application of lean tools, six-sigma analysis, theory of constraints analysis, and business process reengineering analysis within a construct of the USAF Practical Problem Solving Method.  Additionally, it enables the elimination of waste while maximizing customer value.


Process Modeling & Simulation – Provides the ability to conduct experiments in a modeling environment in a significantly reduced time frame, enabling greater confidence in the solution via the use of data analytics, and achieve improved results quicker.
