Problem Solving and Prevention
Shainin improves product performance, product reliability, and process performance through investigative strategies. When a client approaches us with a difficult problem, we provide the solution, install systems to ensure the solution remains in place, and leverage the results to strengthen overall business performance. We also discover and solve problems early in the design phase, before costly manufacturing steps are taken and before customers experience failures in the field. Our Red X® strategies are recognized around the world as the fastest way to solve difficult problems with minimal resources.
