What should you do next? NIRAS’ Management Decision Consultancy helps you make significant decisions about new investments or improvement of your current production facilities. Our consultancy enables your organisation to act professionally and with focus on your business.
Audits and Condition Evaluation: Based on our vast experience of optimising production plants, NIRAS carries out audits with the goal to reduce our client’s operational costs, evaluate the current condition and identify the needs and timing for investments. As an example, we have carried out a large number of utility audits, typically identifying 10-30% savings potentials on our client’s energy and water usage.
Business Cases: We can support your strategic decisions with facts and financials. NIRAS’ business cases visualise and compute all benefits and risks related to your development, enabling you to make the right decisions for your business.
Optimisation of OPEX: With the NIRAS Opex Optimus™ approach we can offer you lasting operational improvement and cost reductions. We can work with your team on known and new improvement areas and make sure that the implementation is speedy and well designed. We put our final fee at stake on achieving the agreed outcome! NIRAS’ audit teams have identified operational cost savings of EUR 1.9 per hl produced on average.
Production Structure Analysis (PSA): Is your overall production structure optimal or should you concentrate the production on fewer and larger plants? If so, which plants should be closed and should other plants be expanded? Or should you build a greenfield plant? These are all questions that the NIRAS PSA will answer by identifying the optimal long-term production structure when evaluating the economic and technical consequences of the different scenarios.
Logistics: NIRAS is market leading within optimisation of logistical and packaging solutions in a number of industries. Through innovative solutions for optimising processes, organisations and systems, we boost your competitive power by optimising your supply chain, and thus increase the productivity of your business.
Master Plan and Dynamic Master Plan: We can create a master plan that translates your strategy into a solid plan for your production assets. You can choose between the detailed Master Plan or the Dynamic Master Plan which gives you the ability to continuously plan your CAPEX needs in a rolling scenario.
Sustainability: Changes in climate and access to natural resources challenge strategic assumptions, technology, and behaviour in the beer and beverage industry. Establishing your green production of the future means defining your sustainability ambition and adopting a strategy for going from best practice of today to next practice.
NIRAS supports your journey from defining strategies and assessing risks, to executing projects with the goal to improve your environmental footprint and lowering your costs. NIRAS can offer the advantage of taking a 360 degree view on sustainability including the indirect and direct consequences on the product quality.
