Operations & Plant Management 


Why outsource my operation?  

nGROUP focuses on operational processes within your facilities to reduce cost, while improving productivity, quality, and service levels.  We allow your current management team to focus on strategic issues rather than the day to day burden of production and labor issues.  Our world class team and processes along with our partners ultimate oversight ensures you maintain control and receive the service and results you desire. 

Why do you think you can do it better than we can do it? 

Outsourcing is not a zero sum game.  Many organizations fail to understand that the sum of the parts, when combined effectively, actually exceed the whole.  By adding nGROUP, you are bringing additional resources to your operation to enhance your overall performance.  nGROUP has experience working with market leaders across the nation where we have had the privilege to develop, learn, and utilize world class best practices.  In addition nGROUP is dedicated to the improvement of our client’s operations.  All of our resources are utilized and trained to optimize our client's operation.  The nGROUP team is continually updated on the latest improvements from across our partner base.  We also invest in continued education for our team, develop and continue to invest in technology, tools, and solutions to improve our service offering. 

How do I maintain control of the operation? 

During our assessment and implementation, the nGROUP team will interview important shareholders to ensure our partners are comfortable with the reporting structure, inventory handling, production tracking, or whatever information is important.  We also develop processes that confirm quality, production, and billing data with our partner.  Our quarterly business reviews (QBR) are always an opportunity to review and adjust what we all find important.  In the end, inventory, process, and product never leave your facility. 

Can we utilize nGROUP’s engineering on internal projects? 

nGROUP’s teams of engineers are dedicated to ensuring best practices within our program.  However when invited to work with our partner’s team on internal initiatives, we see that as an opportunity to integrate our program into the fabric of our partner’s operations.   We often find additional efficiencies when engaged in the design of internal projects, particularly when the areas of focus have direct or indirect impact our program. 

How does nGROUP’s program affect our employees? 

We focus on individual productivity within our program.  We only accomplish our goals with successful employees.  When appropriate we are glad to discuss opportunities to join the nGROUP team in order to maintain the tribal knowledge of our client’s operation. 

How can I be sure your goals are aligned with our company? 

During the assessment and implementation process, we work with multiple members of your team to develop a dashboard report that encompasses your important metrics.  That report will be utilized to understand our successes and areas for improvement. 

How do you incent productivity without harming quality? 

We not only put incentives in place, we also include disincentives for poor quality. Employees are only paid on first quality throughput, and they lose incentive for passing on product not up to standard. We also teach methods and processes that are enforced as part of our program. Due to this, quality checks are inherently in the process that was not there previously.  nGROUP understands the cost to quality, we can implement a program that reduces billing for sub-par quality and increases billing for exceptional quality. All product quantities and quality are confirmed by you as work is completed. This assures your quality processes have independent inspections.
