Enterprise-Wide Cost Reduction

Synaptic Enterprise-Wide Cost Reduction℠ (SECR℠) delivers an average of 10% to 15% reduction in Bill of Materials (BOM) cost -- with savings in the 20% to 25% range not uncommon. In turn, when Product Cost is reduced, associated indirect costs fall commensurately for greater savings.

Synaptic's SECR℠ methodology reduces product and process cost and improves quality by bringing together -- in a single, integrated process -- the power of

  • Customer Focus Groups
  • Value Analysis
  • Lean
  • Design-for-Manufacturing
  • Kaizen
  • Root Cause Analysis

In drawing on all functions across the enterprise, SECR℠ breaks down intra- and inter- enterprise silos to build a value- and quality- focussed culture -- spanning your business and your suppliers' and customers'.

Risk Modulated℠ Project Management

Synaptic's Risk Modulated Project Management℠ (RMPM℠) methodology helps our clients achieve industry-leading time-to-market, project budget compliance, and product quality by delivering

  • Time-to-Market reduction on the order of 25%
  • Estimation accuracy improvement of 20% to 30%
  • Field Failure Rate reduction on average by more than 20%

RMPM℠ does so by blending Agile, Lean, and classic PMBOK / Critical Path Management (CPM) methodologies dynamically on a per project basis -- creating the right project management regimen for the specific risks and challenges facing your particular project, and not "shoehorning" your project into a "cookie cutter" project management system.

See Synaptic's RMPM℠ Whitepaper and Video for a more in-depth discussion.
