Process Quality

ERPs and supporting systems

Green indicators are good, meaning company objectives or targets are being met. Every company has its own and industry strategic processes which are a competitive advantage when leveraged together. Harmonizing these processes in your ERP and supporting systems is the way to achieve performance gains. Clear processes, metrics and indicators promote green performance for IT projects and overall Company KPIs.

We use Lean and Six Sigma methods to improve the quality and speed of processes through improvements and waste reduction which minimizes variability in business, production and logistics processes (e.g., product defects, orders on credit hold too long, orders shipped early or late, back orders, out-of-stock material, customer satisfaction, process measures and many more).

"Quantity or Quality?  When companies are asked this question, it is usually both with cost effectiveness. Time is precious. A key concept in Lean is queuing or wait time. We focus on all aspects of Lean and Six Sigma; however, speeding process time and reducing wait time is key. When time is measured, organizational efficiency and effectiveness increases, speeding operations across the Enterprise."

ERP ecosystem - build your Company's own process-based data models for supporting applications, Industrial big data and analytics

All areas above are handled with "clear visibility" through process-based structures, data models and applications. We also provide key Lean and Six Sigma models and charts in HTML/CSS applications, webpages and in many analytic and visualization tools. These methods and improvement techniques are geared toward boosting a Company's performance with efficient and effective use of ERPs, surrounding applications, other data sources and analytics.
