Company Primed to Expand Consulting Network
October 13, 2003 (Pleasanton, CA) –Wright Williams & Kelly (WWK), a cost & productivity management software and consulting services company, announced today the formation of a new division, WWK Consulting. This new division brings together a broad-based cooperative of independent consultants operating under consistent project management leadership and with access to WWK’s state-of-the-art software tools.
“Since 1991, we have successfully used our software, developed with International SEMATECH and Sandia National Labs, to help companies in the semiconductor and other high-tech industries identify and control manufacturing costs. However, many other businesses have similar cost management issues. By expanding our network of independent consultants, WWK can help these companies with strategic cost analysis and management,” stated Daren Dance, WWK’s Vice President. “Imagine having the power of skilled consultants at your fingertips to help you identify areas for improvement and to develop creative solutions; Consultants who have weathered the economic ups and downs of their industries.”
WWK Consulting also provides benefits to qualified independent consultants who are looking to grow their practices. WWK Consulting provides these consultants with access to marketing and software specialists, network conferencing, and project management resources.
WWK is a vital business resource as its productivity and cost management tools are powerful antidotes to the effects of deflation and the lack of product pricing power. And, in the midst of pervasive overcapacity, WWK’s tools can rationalize capital allocation, helping to efficiently match capacities and technologies with expected sales volumes.
Additionally, many businesses are facing strategic milestones regarding upgrades, going fabless, consolidation, or niche applications. These involve significant capital decisions and WWK’s tools and consultants can assist in making these decisions efficient and effective.
With more than 2,800 users worldwide, Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. is the largest privately held operational cost management company serving technology-dependent and technology-driven companies. WWK maintains long-term relationships with prominent industry resources including International SEMATECH, SELETE, Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI), and national labs and universities. Its client base includes most of the top 10 semiconductor manufacturers and equipment and materials suppliers as well as leaders in thin film record heads, magnetic media, flat panel displays, and solar panels.
WWK’s product line includes TWO COOL® for detailed process step level cost of ownership (COO) and overall equipment efficiency (OEE), PRO COOL® for process flow and test cell costing, Factory Commander® for full factory capacity analysis and activity based costing, and Factory Explorer® for cycle time reduction and WIP planning.
