Welcome to o&i consulting

o&i consulting is a specialist operations consultancy. We design, plan, and improve aviation, logistics, and service sector operations, helping clients to achieve operational excellence through practical solutions that are transferable and achievable in live operation.

 

Clients receive solutions that are based on broad sector experience, and operations research and industrial engineering disciplines. These core capabilities are at the centre of everything we do and are represented in the ‘o&i’ in our company name: ‘o’ for ‘operations research’ and ‘i’ for ‘industrial engineering’.

 

Our team is regarded for successfully combining strong analytical and production skills, attention to detail, industry knowledge, a hands-on approach, and a lot of enthusiasm to get the best results for our clients and partners. We provide them with a detailed understanding and accurate representation of current operations performance, quantify the potential of their operation, and design and recommend approaches to improve performance and service. This includes designing new processes and improving existing ones, providing detailed layout designs, and developing achievable, efficient operating plans.

Whatever the challenge, it is important that operations remain efficient. Therefore, our solutions are geared towards improving flow, achieving high productivity and desired service levels, and providing customers with a positive experience. In larger development projects, we support clients and partners with our specialist skills to enable them to successfully integrate change, and create future-oriented, efficient facilities and operations. o&i consulting has a broad, international client base, and a history of repeat business with long-term clients.

 

“There are a number of reasons why clients come back to us… our critical eye, subject matter expertise and first-hand operational experience. However a key point is that they know they can leave us to get on with the job and we will confidently deliver a useable solution.”
