Manufacturing engineering

Choosing the right materials, suppliers and processes

Make-or-buy strategy

Our market breadth enables us to provide objective information when considering the strategic decision to manufacture in house or to out source supply.  

Design for manufacture and assembly

Our highly experienced teams use a structured assembly step-by-step review to highlight assembly concerns and provide feedback directly into the design process for DFMA improvements. 

Supply chain management

We actively manage supply chain activities to maximize customer value and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. We cover everything from product development, sourcing, production and logistics, as well as the information systems needed to coordinate these activities.

Manufacturing cost optimization

Ricardo has extensive experience of cost-optimization initiatives, including engines, transmissions, vehicle and other specialist equipment. Our manufacturing engineers can review parts and compare them individually against our benchmark database, or utilize proprietary cost-estimation software in order to generate improvement ideas and recommendations.
