Lateral Engineering provides a Manufacturing Consulting service.
The activities and way these are delivered are tailored to suit your particular situation. For example for one client we started with a very specific overall business goal of producing record quantities of product over the next four weeks to meet a new customer order. This was followed some time later with a project to create a customised control system for a new item of plant producing a new type of product.
|Our work requires an in-depth understanding of the overall process, the operation of the plant and the behaviour of the shipped product.
