Process Improvement  /  Operational Excellence

Operational Excellence, OPEX for short, easy to say – hard to do.

Some of the concepts seem to be straight forward but getting your team to embrace them and execute constantly can be quite another.  OFI can help. We will help you and your team:

  • Clearly identify roadblocks
  • Understand and address the root causes
  • Design and help you implement practical solutions that your team can and will use.

We apply the principles of Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints,  FLEX methodology, and other optimization techniques to your challenges. We also help your team learn to use these techniques so they can continue to improve your processes long after the project is done.

How do we do this?  We’ll work with you to create a project team, engage them in finding the root causes and solutions, and help them work through implementing the solutions.

Typical projects include:

  •  Establishing Key Metrics / KPI’s and S.M.A.R.T. goals
  • Lean Process Optimization & Simplification
  • Throughput Improvement
  • Profitability Optimization
  • Scrap reduction
  • Cost reduction
  • Efficiency and organization through Five S
  • SOP improvement and compliance
