Asset Utilization and Throughput Management

It is our experience that the effective utilization of major capital equipment offers tremendous opportunity for profit improvement in virtually all print operations. This opportunity is typically measured in overall unit cost reduction that regularly exceeds 15 to 20 percent of current cost levels.

Kensington Resource Group has worked with all sizes of printers, including large multi-plant print platforms, to ensure the optimum utilization of their capital assets. Our efforts in this area address the following:

  • Scheduling tools and disciplines
  • Comprehensive approach to resource planning
  • Set-up time performance
  • Downtime levels and causes
  • Equipment net speeds and throughput
  • Maintenance management and p.m. disciplines
  • Labor planning and skills requirements
  • Analytical tools relative to effective utilization and unit costs
  • Strategic Capital Planning 1 - 5 years

Given the existing market conditions, it is imperative that printers continue to find ways to control production costs. KRG has been working for over twenty years with firms in all segments of the printing industry to do just that. Over that period of time, we have continued to refine and enhance our products and services to meet the demanding needs of our clients.
