Factory consumables are goods which must be replaced regularly as part of the manufacturing process. Lubricants or cleaning supplies for machinery are factory consumables; industrial light bulbs, glue and tape are also consumable factory supplies. Controlling the total manufacturing costs of these supplies — direct manufacturing costs and variable manufacturing costs — is vital to an organization’s financial health. Focused on helping their clients manage non-core costs, ERA consultants review expenses to assess manufacturing cost-savings opportunities. We help determine if incumbent suppliers are offering the most advantageous pricing for factory supplies, applying years of experience and supplier knowledge to improve companies’ cash flow.
