Manufacturing Consulting

Crossmuller's engineering team offers a unique set of capabilities which are supported by a dedicated manufacturing consulting group. Let us help you to unlock the potential of your business through smart digital design and automation.


With a large team of experienced, cross-disciplinary professional engineers and industry experts, Crossmuller can help develop facility designs tailored to a manufacturer's specific operation with a focus on flexibility, efficiency, and practicality.

The Crossmuller design philosophy focuses on a concept whereby the process is the driving force behind the facility. The process is the real investment as it realises the return - it must drive the project.

Additionally, a new development or plant expansion is a considerable investment and requires planning for well into the future to maximise return on investment. Crossmuller can assist by planning staged implementations that allow a modular approach to future expansion by adding additional cells, machines, and automation as volumes increase and requirements evolve.

  • Functional Specifications


Crossmuller has a history of integrating equipment from various third party vendors and can provide consulting services to ensure the right equipment for the requirements is ordered and installed from day one. Via the development of a Project Brief/User Requirements, Functional Specifications, and review of third party tender submissions, we ensure that facility designs address the project requirements and allow for equipment orders to be placed with utmost confidence.

With the development of these specifications, we can also ensure that accurate implementation pricing is obtained, to ensure that return on investment calculations and Capex submissions are well formed, reliable, and backed by clear goals and requirements.

Capabilities include:

  • Requirements Analysis
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Capex Budgeting
  • System Specifications
  • Project Brief/User Requirements
  • Tender Preparation/Evaluation
