Helping Companies Drive

Continuous Improvement

Kanoa Consulting has over 30 years of experience implementing MES and continuous improvement projects in the semiconductor, food & beverage, automotive, mining and hi-tech manufacturing space. We work with end users and systems integrators to avoid the pitfalls and risks common to these types of projects. Application development is just one small piece of the puzzle. Having a clear vision and objectives, managing risks and stakeholders, building teams and re-aligning your organizational structure to take advantage of your future digital factory are just as important for guaranteeing project success.

We provide PMP certified project management, utilize lean six sigma techniques, and rely on the Ignition platform with Sepasoft modules to help companies deliver high returning manufacturing solutions.

Kanoa combines project management, lean six sigma and application development with business coaching, team forming and facilitation to help companies implement continuous improvement strategies. Trust us, it is just as important to prepare, coach and align people across departments as it is to implement the solution to get any kind of return out of these type of CI strategies. Adding MES or lean six sigma solutions when people aren't on-board or ready to use the new found knowledge just doesn't work. We provide the leadership, training, mentoring, project management, development and coaching to help make your CI Initiative a success.
