Operational Excellence Overview

A Strategic Business initiative that aligns and transforms the entire business. In this rapidly changing environment and cut-through competition, Excellence in operations is the only way to sustain and grow as a business. We work with our partners’ side by side and help them improve, transform, and sustain their business processes and operations by leveraging Lean and Operational excellence principles.

Operational Excellence Model

Electrify’s Operational Excellence approach

Practical and Tailored to a partner’s organization would be the two words that describesElectrify’s Operational Excellence approach.
Step 1- Operational Excellence Assessment
We initiate the process with a comprehensive and thorough assessment of your organizational capabilities and challenges. This assessment is Onsite, in-person, and hands-on which usually takes 3-5 business days. Our Operational excellence assessment evaluates fourteen different aspects of your business operations. The purpose of this assessment is to establish the “As-is” model of the company. Upon successful completion, our partners should expect detailed reports about their strengths along with a portfolio of lean and operational excellence project recommendations to take their business to next level.

Operational Excellence Assessment Focus Areas

  • Leadership Alignment
  • Business Systems and Reporting
  • Internal Communications
  • Visual Workplace Management
  • Workforce Flexibility
  • Work Standardization
  • Error Proofing (Poka-Yoke) & Quality Management System
  • Preventive Maintenance Program
  • Rapid Changeovers
  • Plant Layout and Material Flow
  • Inventory Management
  • The Culture of Continuous Improvement
  • Customer Communication
  • Lean Awareness
Step – 2 – Operational Excellence Deployment Based on the observations from our comprehensive operational excellence assessment and detailed discussions with our partners, we initiate the lean operational excellence projects. Most companies prefer to begin their journey towards operational excellence by initiating fundamental lean solutions such as 5S (Sort-Set in order-Shine-Standardize -Sustain), Policy Deployment, A3 or 8D Problem-solving techniques, and Lean Value Stream Mapping workshops throughout the business. These basic workshops and tools help our partners to not only expedite the world-class results but also helps them understand Electrify’s capabilities. However, should our assessment reveal that organization is ready for a comprehensive Operational Excellence initiative, Electrify would help deploy and sustain improvements by becoming an integral part of your organization.
