The ever increasing demands for improved performance, reduced costs and improved quality put a strain on the whole business. Continuous Improvement of processes to achieve these demands requires the systematic elimination of waste.
Industry Forum Process Improvement programmes are all designed to systematically eliminate waste in order to:
- Increase sales and therefore profit, by making more product without additional cost
- Make more profit by making the same amount of product for less
- Increase the cash flow into the organisation by shortening the cash flow lead time
- Reduce the size of the risk the organisation is exposed to along the cash cycle journey
The Process Improvement Programmes
Our Process Improvement programmes are delivered by highly trained and experienced staff who combine their industrial experience with the powerful tools and techniques of the Industry Forum Integrated Business Approach to meet your specific performance requirements.
Bespoke activities address your specific needs and cover as many areas of your organisation as you require. The programmes can be run in single or multiple day blocks and last from 1 day to several years.
Each of these successful improvement programmes is based on a common four step structure.
The cost of a MasterClass is recovered through the direct measures of process performance i.e. Quality, Cost and Delivery.
Our Process Improvement activities typically deliver greater than 400% return on investment.
“The MasterClass provided by Industry Forum has been a real eye opener for the business. The introduction of the techniques has given us a flavour of what we can achieve. The Nova production line at the time of the project was a real concern that we could not achieve the level of production we required. Within the short period of time the project ran with Industry Forum the gain not only in production, but the interaction of the team involved was dramatic. As a result of our experience we are now in the process of employing our own “Lean Professional” at a senior level to lead change throughout our business and I am sure we will look to Industry Forum again in the future to support our plans.”
Richard Beedle, Managing Director, United Steels
“All in all we have measurably improved the bottom line and empowered our staff to drive improvements forward”
James Simpson, Managing Director, Adrian Scripps Ltd.
“It has been a great benefit to have a new pair of eyes looking at what we thought was an already efficient process. Some of the recommendations are being implemented immediately while others are food for thought 2 – 3 years down the line. All in all this was a very useful exercise and we intend to stay working with Industry Forum during implementation.”
