Our Mission: Delivering Value

Bourke Consulting Associates' mission is to assist configurable product manufacturing companies to gain a significant, competitive advantage by means of a comprehensive Configurability Strategy.  We deliver value by assisting clients to thoughtfully select and implement appropriate solutions from a wide choice of proven business processes and enabling software tools.

Some companies may need to develop an overall comprehensive Configurability Strategy; to implement a major supporting system, such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM); or, to invigorate its Lean methods.  Other companies may need only to tackle individual sub processes of major systems.  These tactical point solutions could include selecting and implementing new configurator software, improving CAD file management, integrating PLM with ERP, to cite a few of many possibilities.

From a full development of a Configurability Strategy to tactical point solutions - BCA is here to support your company.
