HMC was formed in
1995 with the goal of revolutionizing the way companies implement manufacturing
is dedicated to increasing manufacturing productivity and sustaining
those improvements. While many other consulting firms provide short-term
takes aim at providing guaranteed process improvements that yield substantial
cost savings and increased throughput for the long term.
HMC looks at a
business from a holistic viewpoint, rather than at its individual pieces.
We work on the technology, the processes, and the people. Unless we
can change the attitudes and behaviors results will not be sustainable.
With our diagnostic methodology we are able to identify and isolate
major areas for improvements and also implement structural changes that
enable long-term results and continuous improvement.
Stephen Hardy is the president and founder of HMC.
His background and qualifications show a broad range of skills: BSEE,
Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Chartered Engineer,
masters in digital communications and computer networks, postgraduate
degree in marketing and MBA in international marketing and corporate
strategy. He was a Royal Academy of Engineering Professor for Design
and Engineering in the UK from 1991-1993.
The key to success in each of HMC's
many projects is our holistic approach, which ensures that all elements
are tightly integrated and strategically consistent. We bring ideas
from different industries and different cultures. We also have an extensive
network of consultants and academics throughout the USA, Europe and
Latin America and call on this expertise to support our programs as
In today's environment, good enough just doesn't suffice.
To compete, you have to be better! Many manufacturers practice continuous
improvement, only to learn that the increases are short-lived or only
temporary. In order to achieve sustainable improvements, a new way of
thinking is required.
At HMC, we use a different
approach. We call it Holistic
Manufacturing. It is our methodology for teaching clients
how to reduce disruptions and focus on statistically significant data
in order to achieve greater output with minimal resources. To do this,
HMC takes a scientific approach to identifying
major manufacturing problems, and then applies human systems solutions
to eliminate them. We also use an "holistic" approach to solving
production inefficiencies, looking at every aspect of the manufacturing
process, not just the obvious problem areas. Our approach has proven
to be successful across a wide range of industries and has consistently
delivered sustainable improvements. What you end up with is a fully
implemented system that generates higher output.
