Britest is a leading exponent of whole process design for the chemical, pharma and other process manufacturing industries.
Our expert consultant technical facilitators use a suite of proprietary tools to help our clients define, structure, and translate working knowledge into process understanding. Effective mentoring and training allow organisations to embed this approach to derive sustained business value. Britest members share knowledge and dilute research risk through a unique collaborative ethos,defining and delivering innovative solutions to key process and manufacturing challenges.
Right across the process industries manufacturers use similar unit operations and face similar challenges as they strive to optimise their performance. At the same time, collaborative research projects often struggle to disseminate fresh insights about process technologies widely and in ways that endure. Britest Knowledge and Understanding Domains (KUDOS) collate process understanding, generated through projects, in a form that allows process sector companies to learn about different process operations and challenges.READ MORE

The study allowed the manufacturing value stream to be seen end-to-end in great detail for the first time ever, highlighting value gaps and the scale and location of improvement opportunities, and catalysed both "quick-win" actions, and a plan to deliver the pipeline of improvement projects identified.READ MORE
