Specializing in the highly regulated food processing industry, Periscope Consulting offers services in Program and Project Management, Regulatory Compliance Programs, and Maintenance Systems.
We offer engaging and interactive training programs in each of these service areas.
Program and Project Management
Periscope Consulting can help your company set up internal systems for Program Management and Project Management, or we can run major projects for you. We can also help you establish a PMO and project portfolios.
Our food processing project experience includes sanitary process design, new product development and installation of food production lines and equipment. Specialized knowledge includes aseptic processing, aseptic packaging and CIP systems.
We have experience in managing software upgrades, ERP enhancements and logistic improvements. We have also led projects in sales support and vendor managed inventory (VMI).
Available training programs include basic project management (PM 101 and 201) offered in partnership with 4th Echelon LLC, as well as Scope Control.
Regulatory Compliance Programs
With a background in both the highly regulated nuclear power and food processing industries, there is little in the way of complaince programs that Periscope Consulting can't tackle.
Periscope Consulting is familiar with all of the regulatory needs of a food manufacturing environment. We have built OSHA and GMP compliance programs. We have managed environmental programs including potable water, waste water and clean air. We have experience with both FDA and USDA regulations. Through an innovative partnership with Strong Harbor LLC, we now offer an exceedingly thorough HACCP "Check-Up."
We are recognized as a global expert in the area of Food Defense - the challenge of keeping the bad guy from intentionally contaminating our food supply. Periscope Consulting has done Food Defense work for both the USDA and the FDA, in Peru, Thailand, Panama, the Caribbean and of course here in the USA.
Periscope Consulting offers training programs that include most OSHA programs, GMP, Food Labeling and Food Defense.
Our maintenance and engineering expertise dates back to operating and maintaining nuclear submarines, followed by a broad variety of food processing environments from confections to juice to frozen dinners to value added produce.
The principals at Periscope Consulting have established world-class maintenance operations and championed the best practices in EAM/CMMS software (Enterprise Asset Management/Computerized Maintenance Management Systems). We have over 20 years experience with IBM's Maximo® Enterprise Asset Management system.
Our training offerings include courses in Storeroom Control as well as Planner/Scheduler training. There is also a suite of training available for the various users of the Maximo® EAM system.
Periscope Consulting offers customized training as a key element of all our other service offerings. All training programs are adjusted to meet your specific needs. We will develop custom training for any topic.
Through an innovative partnership with 4th Echelon, we can offer the same Project Management training that is given to key units of the U.S. Army.
