IPM Stage 3
Technologies for Process Improvement
Our experience has shown that process improvement
is best achieved through the integration of three
proven business improvement technologies:
- Variation Reduction through Six Sigma methods and tools
- Speed, Flexibility and Flow through our blend
of Lean and Theory of Constraints methods and
- Equipment Reliability and Functionality through our blend of TPM/RCM methods and tools
Rarely do we find solutions arising from just one of these strategies. Instead, our experience has clearly shown that the most effective improvement solutions arise from the flexible application of all three, uniquely tailored from one situation to the next.
For a business to be excellent at the "way we
improve," business leaders as well as improvement
specialists cannot limit their knowledge and focus
to just one of these areas, but instead, must
draw upon the integration of all three technologies.
