We Solve BIG Problems


From order entry to paid invoice, people and process issues arise that negate the full potential of all production systems.  Expeditious resolution of issues not only saves time, money and resources, it differentiates the competitive advantage between companies. 

1. Critical Thinking

Partnering with internal company content and technical experts, our experienced consultants provide the mechanism of critical thinking that allows internal SMEs to function as “force multipliers” to solve complex and often costly problems. 

2. Production System Performance

Working together, we address "single event" issues requiring immediate resolution, design "continuous improvement" programs to fine tune and maximize production system performance, and transfer all the necessary knowledge and skills to your internal staff.  

3. ROI Results

We identify bottlenecks of key production processes, fix the root-cause, implement solutions, and track ROI results. Our clients have experienced hundreds of thousands in improved EBITDA within days or weeks of using our methodologies.

Thinking Dimensions LLC was awarded the Medallion of Excellence for its contribution to the fleet by  the Commander of U.S. Naval Sea Systems in 2012.  This is the first time the award has been presented to an outside organization.
