Impruver Continuous Improvement Culture

Provide a proven process for solving problems

The ability to solve problems is the most powerful skill to develop in the development of a Continuous Improvement culture. This single capability, if strengthened systematically across your organization, gives your business an incredible competitive advantage, especially when coupled with clear direction on where the business is going.

Fortunately, there are several tools for systematically solving problems. You’ve probably heard of the 5-Why’s, Fishbone Diagram, A3’s, and other tools. Impruver incorporates the ideal problem-solving method called the Why-Tree Analysis, which can be effectively applied against 95% of all the problems your business will ever face. It combines the most effective elements of 5-Why and Fishbone in one user-friendly tool.

Apply this method to problems of any complexity with a cross-function team of subject matter experts (most importantly the person who executes the process most frequently) and you’ve got a recipe for greatness.

Engage all employees in a Continuous Improvement Culture - making improvements in the right direction

Your base work makes you money today. Improvement work makes you money forever. The key is to make sure a) everyone engages in improvement work everyday and b) that improvement work supports the execution of a solid company strategy. Impruver facilitates these important objectives in the following ways:

Capture Production Data and Calculate Productivity

Use the Global Standard OEE to measure productivity against perfection.

Learn to Love Your Losses

Visualize losses in categories of uptime, throughput, and yield to best understand where to focus value stream improvement activity.

Pinpoint Areas for Opportunity

Quickly identify which person, team, products, shifts, etc. could benefit the most from benchmarking and learning from others who are generating better results.

Encourage experimentation toward results

Transform leaders into coaches who understand that the game is won in practice. In the context of a manufacturing operation, practice is the deliberate effort to form hypothesis about potential solutions, run experiments to validate or disprove the hypothesis, check for results, then take action to run further experiments if needed. This is the scientific method but it’s also PDCA (Plan, Do, Check Act). This is the method at the heart of Continuous Improvement. It is the seed that grows into a lush rainforest when nurtured effectively. The role of leaders is to provide the energy and drive to keep learners progressing through the problem-solving process at the pace appropriate for business success.
