Increasing the product throughput and reducing the operating costs
An important competitive parameter is a meat company’s ability to utilize process equipment and operators 100%. According to DMRI’s experience, the economic potential for improving competitiveness through productivity in many meat companies are 5-10% of the total costs/kg produced.
DMRI offers a consultancy service where we boost productivity by increasing the kg or units produced, while keeping the same number of staff and by improving the efficiency.
We call this service a Productivity Boost, based on a success fee.
The service focus on two elements, operator productivity and process efficiency.
To track and control the improvements DMRI has developed a simple yet impressive Productivity Management Tool (PMT), which your key personnel will receive training in how to utilize. The PMT will provide you with a comprehensive KPI dashboard, which will provide and ensure constant focus to the level of productivity.
The methodology and work plan for the Productivity Boost is as follows:
To ensure anchoring of changes; focus and cultural, the task runs for 1 year + implementation of needed physical modifications. Our approach will ensure the anchoring in your organization with a sustained performance through the project time.
In general, we say that only minor investments will be needed and we won’t require that the participating company do investments in advanced technology.
We work in two areas:
|OPERATOR PRODUCTIVITY||PROCESS EFFICIENCY|
|Increased throughput||Increased Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE%)|
|Balancing and line staffing||Layout and logistics|
|Work instructions and standardization||Process arrangements|
|Operator skills and training||IT and production planning|
|Implementation of KPI’s and ongoing Follow-up||Process conditions and maintenance|
