Solutions Equal Profits!

By synthesizing the principles of LEAN, 5S, and Six Sigma mkd solutions can provide answers to help your business by cutting costs through defect and waste reduction leading to increased profits.

The MKD Solutions Approach

mkd solutions specializes in the principles of Kaizen, Lean, 5S, Green Belt. These principles give us the answers to increased productivity in your company’s Project Management, Minitab, Leadership, Logistics, Warehousing, SolidWorks, Manufacturing and Mechanical Design.

LEAN

Results are achieved by enabling people to fully engage their creativity by visualizing and improving the processes and ways of working.

  • Ability to deliver projects and products on-time and on budget
  • Flexibility and adaptability to change
  • Quality of the new product or service
  • Cost to launch and deliver product or service

Lean Office, Lean Finance, Lean Engineering and Lean Administration (TSM): A lean office transformation begins by visualizing the processes and their targets, organizing teams around daily and project-based kaizen activity, and building simple performance management systems.

Lean Innovation, Lean Startup & Lean Product Development (IDM): The lean approach improves the effectiveness of the process of innovation, startups, new product development, new product launches, new facility design and construction.

5S

5S is a system of five steps to reduce waste and optimize productivity through maintaining an orderly workplace and using visual cues to achieve more consistent operational results. This lean method cleans up and organizes the workplace and is typically the first lean method which organizations implement. It encourages workers to improve their working conditions and helps them learn to reduce waste, unplanned downtime, and in-process inventory. The employees gain a sense of ownership, involvement and responsibility as their improved performance in productivity, quality and morale leads to increased profitability. The five steps are:

  • Sort – clear the work area of unneeded items
  • Set in order – create efficient and effective storage
  • Shine – clean the work area
  • Standardize – the best practices
  • Sustain – make a habit of proper procedures

Six Sigma

Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality output of process by identifying and removing the causes of errors and minimizing variability in manufacturing processes. Six Sigma is associated with statistical modeling of manufacturing processes expected to be free of defects.

The focus is:

  • Reduce process time
  • Reduce pollution
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase customer satisfaction
  • Increase profits
  • Specialty areas

The Lean Six Sigma methodology views lean manufacturing, which addresses process flow and waste issues, and Six Sigma, with its focus on variation and design, as complementary disciplines aimed at promoting "business and operational excellence". Both disciplines implement Kaizen, or change for the better, a methodology which includes making changes, monitoring results and then adjusting the processes to improve the next results.

Logistics

Logistics is the management of the flow of goods between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet requirements of customers or corporations.

Warehousing

Warehousing is the procedure whereby a company gradually builds up a holding of shares in a company it wishes to takeover in the future.

SolidWorks

SolidWorks is a solid modeling computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering software program that runs on Microsoft Windows and utilizes a parametric feature-based approach to create models and assemblies.

Construction/Capital Project Management

Project Management is the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from start to finish; the goal is to meet the client’s requirements to produce a project that is both functionally and financially viable. Human and material resources, cost, time, quality and risk management are all part of the management equation. Capital projects are usually long-term and on a larger physical and financial scale as they deal with corporate infrastructure. Planning, organization, execution, monitoring and control of a project define an excellent Project Management team.

Manufacturing & Mechanical Design

Manufacturing and Mechanical Design deals with different manufacturing practices and includes the research, design and development of systems, processes, machines, tools and equipment. The primary focus is to turn raw materials into a new or updated product in the most economic, efficient and effective way possible.

ASME

ASME is a professional association that promotes the art, science, and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences, continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations, and other forms of outreach. ASME is a nonprofit engineering society, a standards organization, a research and development organization, a lobbying organization, and a provider of training and education.

    “I have known Mario for almost 20 years. The first time I met him, I knew I was dealing with someone that was professional, knowledgeable and honest. Over time, I also found him to be the kind of person that I could also call my friend. I have always found Mario to be an innovative Engineer, whether it is designing LP Gas regulators for commercial use or developing and managing a process to test high end optical devices for use in networking systems, he has never ceased to amaze me in what he is able to accomplish. He is the type of Engineer that can also be entrusted with a great deal of responsibility. Regardless of deadlines or other pressure, Mario always delivers. His superior organizational skills make him the consummate multi-tasker and professional.”

    “Mario was an excellent project manager to work with. He listened, challenged recommendations, checked references and stayed on top of details as the projects progressed. Every project we did together exceeded his expectations because he did his homework upfront. Together we saved $300,000.00 worth of steam energy while improving production efficiency. It provided a 1.3 year ROI.”
