About Us

We are effective at creating a value-based organization that flows value, is visually managed, and is continuously improving by engaging all employees in solving problems by eliminating root causes.

• We typically achieve 20-30% labor productivity improvement, 60% reduction in WIP, 20-25% floor space productivity improvement, and 60% reduction in manufacturing lead time, even in organizations that have been pursuing lean manufacturing, six-sigma, or demand flow technology for several years.

• We achieve the above while improving Safety and Quality.

• We facilitate, train, and lead at all levels of the organization, from operators to executives.

• We are effective in both union and non-union environments, and have worked with a variety of cultures.


Tom M.

Senior Director of Quality Operations at Siemens Healthineers

I have known and worked with Ray for my duration w/ Zimmer and have found both the caliber of his work and work ethic itself to be outstanding. Together we worked on exploring new inspection and test options for our products. […]  I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking a hardworking and dedicated engineering/six sigma professional.


Aldo Perez

General Manager at Toyota Boshoku America

Very eager, very motivated and excellent coach. During the year I worked with Ray he coached me and my team on improving our negotiation, tactical and strategic skills. He also showed his commitment by contributing his personal time and resources to improve the condition of our team, something that not everyone is willing to do. He is also a very honest person who is not shy of telling the truth when needed.

Senior Vice President of Quality and Regulatory Affairs at Conformis, Inc.

Riad (Ray) worked with me at Zimmer. His expertise in process improvement activities, his institute and nimble mental process as well as systemic approach at viewing problems and generating appropriate solutions, educating others and leading the team to implementing such solutions reduced costs and save millions of dollars in operations. He is an asset to any organization seeking to improve its activities and processes.

Kerry McPherson

Program Manager at ZF Steering Systems

Ray is a dynamic, forward-thinking leader who continually looks to improve the environment he is in. He has an entrepreneurial spirit unlike most people I have known. He can be successful working in any industry and in any function that requires fresh eyes and demands continual improvement.
