An On Site Assessment put simply, it is a detailed analysis of operational performance.
Getting a comprehensive report, as well as targets, scores, an assessment, a management brief, a gap discussion and an action plan, is the first step to achieving a transformed manufacturing culture and performance.
“If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”. A good score won’t remain good if you do nothing.
“My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that” – Lewis Carroll.
In most manufacturing businesses, you can’t blame the Mercury for producing entrenched ‘Mad Hatters’. The onsite assessment will produce all of the factual information you need to grade the start. As well as, enabling you to monitor your progress. However, how quick the transformation will be is down to the buy-in and involvement of the team – at all levels.
Improvement is nothing but continuous, therefore, targets should be revised periodically. Our team understands the start, setting realistic targets, as well as coaching and mentoring individuals along the way. No matter what the overall score, the role of the operations team is to continuously improve.
Why the On Site Assessment?
In brief, the basic function of a manufacturing operation is to transform sales orders into revenue. The costs associated with this process are managed and controlled by the operations team. If operations are not performing to the expected and budgeted level, the cost of sales increases. As a result, there is a risk of damaging customer confidence, which could threaten future sales orders. You get what you measure, and the detailed onsite assessment has 100 years of combined manufacturing experience built into it.
Our full on site assessment will provide you with a baseline score, targets and improvement actions. As well as, a roadmap with occasional gateways of reassessment, reflection and new or reaffirmed direction.
A meeting with an Oracle Director may be just the boost needed to transform your manufacturing organisation. There’s no obligation so nothing to lose and everything to gain by checking out what the on site assessment is all about.
