Variability

Variability

You already have many measures to control variability in your plant operations.

One of the greatest benefits we bring our clients is a better understanding of what variability is actually costing them, and how much variability is acceptable. You already have measures to control variability, but the questions you may be asking are:

  • Are the measures working?
  • Are they the right measures?
  • How much variability is acceptable?

Decreasing deviation, getting tight to the mean

You probably don’t know how much variability is currently costing your operations. Your new variability measures will be based on considerations that include cost, resources, and impact.

Following, a few ways we’ll enable your operators to decrease variability, ongoing:

  • Your plant shop supervisors will use our real-time dashboards to make better production decisions, all day long.
  • Our at-a-glance information systems free up your operators to focus on the job at hand, rather than sitting in front of a computer.
  • Exception-based alarming will notify key personnel of what they need to know right now to make that critical difference.

Where will you save money?

By decreasing deviation, you’ll increase quality and decrease waste. A stable process is a more reliable process, driving increased run ability and throughput. We’ll start by focusing on the areas where deviation is costing you the most, so as to give you the earliest and highest return on your investment.
