• Provides greenfield projects with a scientific understanding of the basic equipment and labor equation required for an operation before any money is spent on equipment and infrastructure.
• Identifies non-value adding functions that most brownfields organizations accumulate over time eliminates waste scientifically, not opportunistically
• Identifies the lowest fixed cost platform and variable cost flexing to cater for volatility

- Stabilizing Operations
There are several indications that the operational system has reached the limits of its inherent capability and has become unstable. These include:
• Increasing variance from plan
• maintenance reliability issues
• safety incidents and failure to meet short and long-term objectives


- MAGNOM:
• Finds the sources of the instability and develops specific strategies which create enough time and space in the operations to optimize the available capacity
• Develops solutions to increase the system capability or cap the system throughput at levels where performance is stable and continuous improvement efforts are sustainable
