10in6 Inc. is unique in that we offer our customers a wide variety of consulting and implementation services. Depending on where you currently sit on the continuous improvement spectrum and how far along you are with production reporting systems, we will be able to find the right mix of solutions and services help you achieve success.
Continuous Improvement Experience / Methodologies
Start with the basics: We can help you design some simple but focused techniques that will be easy to implement and maintain that will generate an immediate impact on efficiency improvements.
We can work with you to identify and focus on a few key metrics/enablers that will generate the highest impact in terms of improvements. Then we will generate the associated key reports that highlight and drive accountability to those metrics and ensure that your improvements are sustained.
We can work with your existing continuous improvement processes and techniques and take them to the next level by streamlining the data collection activities and ensuring that focus is placed on the highest priority issues.
Product Reporting Systems
If you’re just getting started then our advice is to “KEEP IT SIMPLE”. We don’t wish to overwhelm our customers with too much change at once. This is a great opportunity to exploit the ‘low hanging fruit’ of improvement that will become apparent with just a few simple reports and metrics.
Since you have experience with some reporting systems, the next step is determine precisely what data is important and what isn’t. Then you will want to ensure that that data is accurately reported and acted upon. We will transition you from ‘having reports’ to ‘using report’ to drive real continuous improvement.
An organization that is data driven understands the importance of accuracy and discipline of their data usage. You’re most likely on the upper end of the efficiency spectrum so now it’s time to increase the granularity and accuracy of your data so incremental improvement can be achieved. Without this level of detail, most continuous improvement programs hit a wall and stall.
