Projects for global Competitiveness

The cost for the project will be lower than 50% of the savings obtainable during the first year

ITEMSA can help you design an Integral plan for the enhancement of competitiveness and productivity suited to your needs at any time. We will carry out a previous report, including the analysis of the actual situation, the quantification of the objectives to be reached and the cost, fixed and variable, of our collaboration (based on the obtainable results). We will schedule the required actions and make them viable through the use of the resources at your disposal (with the exception of minimum investment or expenditures, which are easily and early paid back) and with the application of the more appropriate techniques, ensuring the necessary levels for the participation and engagement of all your company’s chain of command in order to succeed in the attainment of the objectives proposed. And we will do it together, you and ITEMSA.


Our intervention process for the design of your Integral plan for the improvement of competitiveness and productivity is fundamentally based on the joint development (Customer/ITEMSA) of the following activities:

  • Previous analysis of the situation and relevant background (knowledge of the present organization of work, study of the current legislation, applicable collective agreement and other internal pacts in force).
  • New strategy of the company (definition of the objectives and strategies of the Plan in terms of organization of work; productivity, quality and flexibility; appropriateness or inappropriateness of design, negotiation, agreement and implementation of a suitable system of productivity incentives, defensible before any relevant authorities, ensuring the systematic maintenance of the improvement and cost reduction process and a better use of working time, and attempting to share part of the profits resulting from this contribution to the increase of the company’s efficiency and competitiveness with the affected personnel (direct and indirect manpower).
  • Identification and quantification of the possibilities for improvement.
  • Design of the General Plan for improvement and scheduling of specific actions to be developed (work study: analysis and improvement of the current operational methods, determination of the relevant execution times, study of job posts saturations and establishment of the relevant manufacturing cell balancings or assembly lines; devising of an incentives system and drawing up of its Regulations for application).
  • Validation of the Project (defence before the legal Representation of the Employees and their Trade Union Advisors and, if required, before the relevant Labour Jurisdiction).
  • Implementation and Training, if required (support to the Technical Office and to the Senior staff of the company during the implementation of the new System for the Organization of work and Incentives; training of Senior Staff and members selected by the Employees Representatives in terms of methods and time measurement, and establishment of load balancing).
  • Monitoring and control of the fulfilment of the scheduled actions.
  • Guarantees in terms of results achievement.

We are convinced that the improvement objectives that are planned are more easily achieved through the application of ITEMSA’s Model and with the joint contribution of the following elements:

  • The organizational and mentality change, required to undertake the Plan.
  • La irreplaceable engagement and collaboration of the management and technical team of the Company.
  • The necessary training for their technicians, senior staff and workers
  • The use of the most appropriate techniques.
  • The indispensable and adjusted treatment of the aspects related to the Company’s human resources.




The cost for the collaboration of ITEMSA will be lower than 50% of the savings that can be obtained during the first year of execution of the Plan, under homogenous conditions in respect to those considered in the plan.
