After delivering 14 modules and 14 coaching sessions to the supervisory team in a Military Manufacturing environment, they have identified over $1.1 million of improvement opportunities on the production floor that have been integrated into the strategic planning for execution.
The approach consists of “LISTENING”, “SEEING” and “UNDERSTANDING” in the process of developing the desired approach that will best assist the company.
The second step consists of putting into action the different recommendations coming from the analysis of the current situation”ACT”. At this time, out team of consultants will act as teacher, helper or coach depending on the different steps of the proposed projects. However, in all cases, we assume our role as project manager and work in collaboration with your team.
The last step will help you “MAINTAIN” what you have improved, because, too often, this is the step that is most neglected, and that we have not structured. This phase will introduce to you the concept of audits. These audits are a means of measuring on a regular basis what the present situation is in regards to the overall objectives of the organization.
Our Productivity Business Concept
In a prefabricated home manufacturing plant, working with production employees in implementing some lean concepts on 10 workstations out of 22, the company was able to save $201,000 in its first year.
It all started in 2014. We knew we had to start a culture change within the municipality, but at the same time we needed to be guided. Our progress has not been easy. Some projects have been successful, other have been less successful. There were skeptics and people outright opposed this idea. With the perseverance of the implementation team at the municipality, the use of proven tools, structured training, and the coaching that the DirecSys team gave us, we can say that we have made big steps. Today, after 6 years, we can see the daily impact of this initiative, employees who think and act differently with a common goal of improving the way we do things.read more
