An assessment to understand your problems - what is the problem, how often, what are the implications of the problem to our business, what is the cost of the problem?
From this assessment, NSK then goes away and considers how we can solve the problem(s).
Having understood the extend of the problem, this is where we present our solution to you, including the costs and other associated issues (lead times, redesign, etc...).
This is your opportunity to ask any questions or raise any other issues regarding our value proposition.
Once you have accepted our value proposition we work with you as necessary, to create a mutually agreed implementation plan, taking into account any deadlines, key milestones and who is likely to be affected by our proposition.
The correct implementation of our value proposition is key in order that you achieve the forecasted savings.
Once the NSK proposition has been implemented, we work with your own personnel to ensure that the forecasted savings are actually realized, through best practice maintenance of the implemented proposition.
The savings generated by utilizing NSK's Asset Improvement Program are both significant and varied, in terms of their nature and in the industries where they have been implemented.
