Focused Improvement

Focused Improvement is a structured team-based improvement activity linked back to a loss analysis. At OpEx Solutions we use a standard approach to Focused Improvement that is simple, logical and repeatable.

Loss Analysis

Before starting any Focused Improvement its is critical to understand the losses in the Organisation. These losses consume resource and so there is a cost associated with them. At OpEx Solutions we use a variety of tools such as overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), cost/loss tree and value stream mapping to highlight these losses and give them a cost.

The loss analysis gives the focus for the focused improvements!

Improvement Activity

All our Focused Improvement activities utilise a 10-step methodology. We have found this approach gives great results in a huge number of situations and can be readily learned and repeated by teams, there by building internal capability.

Based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, our approach can be used for quality improvement, breakdown reduction, changeover improvement, line balancing, yield improvement, to name but a few.
