As a business leader, it’s your job to make sure your company puts your talent into the optimal position to produce your desired business results and beat the competition. The essence of leadership is aligning employees with business strategy—and that begins with taking an intentional and data-driven approach to getting the people part right.
The use of management operating systems, or an MOS enables organizations to better control work flow and the production of work, driving better performance in customer service, quality and cost. A well thought out MOS allows work to be forecast, resourced and properly scheduled, resulting in meeting customer commitment dates with on-time and high first-pass yield. These same principles can be used in service industries, cross-functional teams of all types and anywhere people are responsible to deliver work product.
Digital manufacturing brings IoT sensors, cloud business intelligence capabilities, artificial intelligence and the plant automation system together to provide better agility, productivity, and product quality. Thoughtful application of these technologies can provide much greater utilization of existing capacity.
This questionnaire takes less than 10 minutes and will give you tremendous insights into better understanding your natural strengths.
Typically, we find companies that have insufficient management operating systems to be challenged in several key areas:
We can help your organization achieve a 15-20 in operational and/or financial improvements. We roll up our sleeves and work alongside your management team and front-line supervisors. WE optimize your existing resources for maximum impact. We can show you how to:
During this two-week analysis, our team is assessing the management team and finding opportunity. We perform comprehensive studies in areas including work processes, purchasing systems, inventory management, labor and equipment utilization. In addition, we can utilize behavioral assessments and evaluate cross-functional teams.
During this second phase we develop a list and detailed analysis of opportunities/potential solutions and provide this information to your team. Once your team reviews the opportunities/potential solutions, we will facilitate an alignment session and use a matrix method to rank opportunities/potential solutions. This approach allows the team to focus on the least complex first and show quick results.
We develop a concise implementation plan, including scope of work, scheduled and a fixed-price implementation fee based on the opportunity(ies) selected during the alignment session.
There are multiple assessments you can choose from. These assessments are designed to determine where your biggest opportunities may exist. Once the assessment is completed, the results will be provided to you during a free 20-minute, no obligation, phone consultation.
Digital Transformation is a force multiplier. It allows manufacturers to significantly reduce their unit cost, thereby allowing them to preserve margins during a time of economic downturn. In fact, according to McKinsey & Company and the World Economic Forum, the United States is woefully behind China and Europe. Our ability to successfully adopt this new technology will pave the way for overall growth of our GDP. There will be a point in time in the not too distant future where companies that don't adopt this technology will be effectively locked out of the marketplace, unable to compete.
The answer is simple. Your leadership is vital to the success of these projects. One of the biggest reasons digital transformation projects fail is indecisive executive leadership. US manufacturers tend to not define a company-wide strategy, but rather rely on operational-level management to instigate bottom-up innovation in digital manufacturing. As a result, many companies never get out of the pilot test mode and there are many failures because these companies are not adapting a cohesive corporate strategy.
An easy point of entry into digital manufacturing is performance management software. This allows greater engagement of the workforce and provides transparency of what really happens on the floor.
Use of predictive methods for proactive maintenance is another commonly accepted and worthwhile use case providing considerable labor cost savings and increases up-time of critical equipment.
Additive manufacturing using 3-D printers for on-demand parts is gaining more acceptance and is now impacting mass markets like smart phone manufacturing.
Organizations that can figure out other ways to combine digital control with flexible manufacturing will greatly increase productivity and win big.
We can help you develop a more cohesive digital transformation strategy and optimize your talent so you can realize your true business potential.
