During the process we encourage maximum participation from client company personnel to ensure effective knowledge transfer and solution ownership to achieve sustaining success.

Clients always receive active direction and involvement only from senior level consultants who focus on measurable results and the development of the client organization's capabilities.

Our Competitive Edge
What makes EW #240  & Co., Inc. appealing to prospective clients is having only people who are seasoned, career consultants that perform the work with our clients. We do not use inexperienced, junior personnel. This means our clients receive active direction and involvement by consultants with substantial experience and technical abilities -- not just sometime, but ALL THE TIME. This is one of the cornerstones on which the firm was founded and conducts its consulting practice. Our consultants have acquired firsthand knowledge of what to do, and equally important, what not to do as a result of line experience and from a wide variety of consulting assignments.

Our philosophy is to develop the capabilities of client personnel through the effective transfer of knowledge and experience.

World Class Manufacturing
Creating a World Class Manufacturing enterprise is certainly no easy task. Achieving the goal requires much more than just new ERP software. Information Technology, however good, will not by itself contribute very much to being a World Class Manufacturer. In fact, there are many more instances than not where the improper and unbalanced application of new technology has done very little to nothing (or worse) toward improving operating performance. If you think a software company alone can deliver what you need to be World Class, think again.

The elusive goal of World Class manufacturing can only be achieved by the proper and balanced application of tools, techniques, methodologies and information technology. Understanding what proper and balanced application should be in a given company's situation requires high level, objective expertise. That's why you should call us.
