Productivity Improvement

”Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.” (Paul J Meyer)

Productivity is measured by comparing returns or outputs by the inputs into a system.
Many businesses are surprised when after a quick assessment they get to see how much more there systems could produce. Frequently we become slaves to the established system, and we unwittingly restrict our productivity by placing unnecessary constraints (of our own making) in the way.
Frequently there is an interesting relationship between productivity, Environment Health and Safety, employee wellbeing and Quality. The best tweaks in a system will have a positive impact on all the other indicators.
For the most part, improving productivity generally comes from identifying and reducing wastes in the system, as we say, working smarter, not harder.

Main benefits:

  • Team recognition of system capability.
  • Obliteration of sacred cows that constrain productivity.
  • Reduction in lead time, so improving throughput.
  • Rightsizing of resources to needs, balancing resources according to load.
  • Understanding supply and demand profiles.
  • Rapid changeover or downtime reduction.
