TrainiNg & Expertise
That Make A Difference.

“Young Metallurgical Consulting will work with your staff to teach the day-to-day processes necessary to manage and improve your organization. Your employees will learn the aspects of heat treating that are not taught in a classroom and can only be gained through direct, hands-on experience."

production scheduling

Production scheduling requires the interaction of several key factors to satisfy customers, insure high quality and maintain your desired level of profits.

Sample Preparation & Hardness Testing

Proper sample preparation and inspection techniques are critical in maintaining the highest quality standards and results. Incorrect procedures can lead to unnecessary reprocessing and customer rejections.

Quality Procedures, control plans, written instructions, pfmea & cqi-9 compliance

Written procedures, documentation, record retention and lot traceability are mandatory. Without these systems, you will not be able to meet most customer and industry requirements.

Customer Service Essentials

Customers are the life blood of any business enterprise. They can be mean and miserable but they still pay the bills. With a well-trained staff, you can handle the situation and improve the relationship.
