Sedlak Delivers Operational Success and Sustainable Competitive Advantage

Sedlak has helped scores of companies, both large and small, achieve operational successes which result in higher profit margins, reduced operating costs and increased customer satisfaction through process improvement, inventory efficiencies and prudent capital deployment. Our experts evaluate every aspect of your operations, from space utilization to material handling processes to equipment and IT systems to labor. We then compare your operational metrics to industry best practices.

Our assessment process is designed to identify key operational challenges, uncover potential savings and build a business case for any modifications to your facility layout, systems, labor, utilities, transportation and inventory. Our recommendations are sound and practical. We don’t seek change for the mere sake of change, and our assessment report will prioritize solutions based on cost, benefits and ease of implementation. It will also provide steps for execution. We have helped clients streamline their distribution processes, increase efficiencies and capacities, achieve higher productivity levels, reduce costs and even extend the useful life of their facilities.

For clients interested in implementing a formal labor management program, our experts conduct time studies and develop engineered standards and standard operating procedures for each operational activity. We can help you implement a labor management system (LMS) for tracking and reporting. Read more about our IT solutions.
