Case study 1

AMI Consulting reported on a business with novel technology and a proposition that required its customers to change established manufacturing practice. The novel technology was positioned to benefit from structural changes underway within the downstream industry. The questions assessed were the probability of the company delivering on its sales plan, an analysis of threats to the business plan, an assessment of the strength of the defensibility of the technology and the level of resources required. 

Case study 2

AMI Consulting reported on a multi-sited operation providing a detailed assessment of the production assets, Capex requirements, site development, actual and optimal manning, accident and safety records, organisation/organisational development, process technology, application know-how, new product development. On completion the client reported 'AMI's commitment has been greatly appreciated as indicated by the fact that we have recommended to our colleagues to use you again'.
