Process improvement ideas – Process improvement has never been more important than it is today, when markets are increasingly competitive and margins are tight. Process improvements either reduce time for a task that can free up resources to drive revenue and/or to create a cost base saving. Both these outcomes support increased profit with benefits for the bottom line of your business.
ReThink have helped many brands identify process improvement ideas. We do that by our trained work study analysts spending time in your business and our experience is the best process improvement ideas are identified one of three ways:
• Workstudy that times your processes and looks at the efficiency of your operation provide a robust, benchmarked evidence base that shows opportunities to improve processes
• Our trained analysts are experts in efficient process flow and we provide observations based on their best practice experience
• And lastly and often most importantly, your colleagues will share with us their ideas based on their long experience of working in your processes
Our workstudy analysts have recommended changes to layouts to improve process flow, for example we suggested some simple, low cost to implement work station changes to a coffee shop chain that helped them improve their capacity to make 25% more cups of coffee in an hour – a major change for a business that relies on quick service to drive revenue
We’ve suggested changes to kit and measured system delays that could all shave vital seconds off high frequency processes.
And we’ve had colleagues make some great suggestions based on the time they have spent figuring out that there must be a better way that avoids duplicate data entry or moving things twice.
