Manufacturing Operational Assessment Services

If you are in the process of buying, consolidating, expanding your current manufacturing footprint, or want to improve your manufacturing metrics at your existing facilities, TPT can provide subject matter experts (SMEs) to help you make informed decisions on future strategic initiatives with our manufacturing operational assessment services.

What differentiates TPT from other Consulting firms that provide current state assessments is our extensive knowledge of facilities, equipment, manufacturing operations, and processes for many industries.

TPT’s experts can be used to support your long or short-term needs. We can simply provide a current state assessment (CSA) of your current operations, be involved throughout all phases, or provide support on an as-needed basis at any point during your project.
