Our engineers mix managerial with technical skills and are mostly deployed in investment projects. The typical flow of such projects is: engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning.
Investment project management
The success of a new investment often depends on the project management which starts at an early stage with the business case validation.
Once the business case is positive we switch to an engineering mode, designing specs. With the spec list we move on to procurement and vendor selection ending up in the final and most exciting stage for a company: installation. Installation takes excellent coordination skills but it is also technical because we do the I/O testing and commissioning too. The final stage is training your staff so you can embed the knowledge in your organisation.
Project & program management
The two main factors that determine the success or fail of a project are budget and timing. TAG will clearly define the scope, budget and timing with you so that it is clear to all involved.
We will constantly adjust and align all parties in the project but we also look broader to other projects in the company that lead to the same goal.
Every plant has or needs a masterplan that defines how the plant will evolve, grow, change. We design masterplans for new plants (greenfield) but most often get asked to validate or adjust existing masterplans. We then clearly (re-)define layout, look at the surroundings and set up possible scenarios for the future that show the best way to evolve.
Looking at the current (production) processes we design a flow chart where we identify bottlenecks, weak or slower links and then start re-engineering. We adjust the process so that it works in the most efficient way and avoids shut down or loss in production time. Based on clear KPIs, ‘as is’ reporting and results of the adjustments we report progress.

We look at lean in a very pragmatic way avoiding huge amounts of time and budget in getting it 100% right.
We look at the current manufacturing process and the available infrastructure. Then clearly define goals. We go for low hanging fruit reducing waste in time and materials. We implement lean on the shop floor but with the involvement of the management during implementation so that the lean principles are permanently embedded within the organization.
Logistics & supply chain
Almost every Capex project has an impact on your plant and your logistics/supply chain.
This means adjusting flows and optimizing the process to fit new investments and get an optimum return on your investment.
