DATA FUELED

​In the root cause analysis stage, we deploy a unique blend of logical deduction paired with DOE (Design of Experiments), regression analysis and other statistical methods in sample selection, analysis and confirmation testing. Our approach is largely data fueled and analytical.

It's well known among experienced problem solvers that problem definition is a key tenet to a successful problem solving endeavor. Of course, achieving strong problem definition, is a key part of our approach. 

What it sometimes lesser known, however, is the importance of recognizing related business process flows which can run in conjunction with the problem solving process. 


Our approach includes strong provision for clarity between two central aspects: 1) problem management, and 2) problem solving (a.k.a. RCA).


We are very well versed in defining and leading both aspects for industrial problems to include:

  • Part Quality Problems

  • Other physical process / mechanical problems affecting productivity or efficiency

  • General business process problems

  • Problems of a perplexing nature - those which no one can seem to figure out. 

We utilize 8D, A3 and other structures which your company may prefer as a general framework for managing problems, yet we more rigorously approach the RCA aspect. 

Additionally, we establish a structure that coaches your team with a more sustainable approach that feeds strengthening inputs into related business processes, such as FMEA. 

In other words, we encourage a process in which problem solving isn't in isolation (on an island) so to speak. We encourage pathways to strengthening systems which should inevitably prevent problems from occurring in the future.

STRATEGY BASED

There's not exactly a one size fits all approach when it comes to problem solving. We develop a custom tailored strategy to fit the problem at hand.


While each strategy is unique, our guiding principles, discipline, competencies and experience leads us reliably to successful outcomes.

COLLABORATIVE

Where structure meets collaboration.


With decades of experience, our team has the capabilities and expertise to confront your challenges so you can focus on running your business. 

The Montague Quality Approach (MQA) was designed within the existing framework of the industry standard core tools. We align advanced practices within this framework so it is easier for your business to learn and scale. This means we place cross functional participation at the core of our process. Additionally, we take a parallel coaching approach as work hands-on to solve problems. 

We teach what we do and we do what we teach.
