World Class Process audit


By Measuring the KPI's that impact process performance, cost and risk

We can determine if your process is stuck in one of the 6 states that's keeping you from World Class.

 

Un-managed Process Variability

impacts performance, wastes resources and puts your people and process at risk

 

A Lean-6-Sigma approach

Reducing process variability with a focus on the systematic elimination of waste is how a sustainable Lean-6-sigma process gets delivered.

Non-core processes are wasteful and put your people and process at risk.  The World Class Process Audit is designed to see if your processes are operating at World Class Levels or not.



"EVERYTHING that a business does, is a process, EVERYTHING.  It can be measured, it can be compared, it can be quantified, and it can be improved."  W Edward Deming.  Our World Class Performance Audit determines which of the 7 process states your plant's non-core processes currently exist in.  By 1st identifying the state, we can develop the steps necessary to bring it to world class so that its supporting not limiting your primary focus.   


7 Process States

Unidentified

Processes that are silently hurting productivity, stealing resources and generating waste and wasteful activity. 

Incomplete

Some KPI's have been identified, there are systems in place and data is used to drive corrective actions, problem is that many of the KPI's have not yet been identified or integrated into the process

Anecdotal

Processes that are based on past experience vs data, they are "managed" based on tribal knowledge.

Broken

The KPI's are known, the systems are in place, however the system is not robust, aspects of the control loop are just not happening on a consistent basis leading to unexpected events and waste.

Contained

When time based Preventative Measures are used to keep a process in control, very wasteful with no real opportunity to improve over time.  

Ancient

Beautiful and robust, however ancient systems have not kept up with innovation and change.  Ancient processes are very sustainable however offer a step change in improvement by introducing more innovative and efficient approaches. 


World Class

To be world class, a process needs to be delivering 100% quality, 100% on-time at the lowest cost possible.  A forever moving target, world class is an ideal that manufacturers need to be working towards relentlessly.  To be world class you need to combine the expertise necessary to identify all the KPI's that impact performance, risk and cost, you need the robust systems in place to ensure that all aspects of the management process are occurring and changing based on data and that you have focused data driven execution to be able to minimize and manage process variability.  The path to world class is endless, however its critical that you identify the processes that are holding you back from your plants true potential.
