Leveraging Process Mining to Design for Success – Strategic Facility and Capacity Planning
There is a great deal of power in developing a plan for the future vs. reacting to arising challenges. This presentation identifies the benefits of leveraging and analyzing process data during the facility master planning phase to identify capital projects and operational improvements to meet future business drivers. The concept of incorporating lean six sigma tools and techniques will be discussed to understand current maximum capacity and quantify improvements to assist in making informed decisions that focus future investments where it is needed.
The presentation will discuss tools and techniques using specific examples from recent projects:
Leveraging data collected as part of a regulated industry
o Discuss the data that is already being collected and how it can be leveraged to improve operations.
Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques to analyze the data to scope capital projects.
o Understand current maximum capacity and compare it against future forecasteddemands.
o Evaluate improvement impacts with respect to throughput and costs.
Project example using capacity analysis and specific metrics to provide a business justification for a capital project.
o Development of a business case using data on cycle time reduction, throughput improvements, staffing and maintenance expenditure reductions to support thepurchase of new packaging lines.
The presentation objective is to show that a planned, data driven approach to capacity / masterplanning, based on current operations, gives owners the ability to make informed decisions in designinga facility, not only for their current critical situation, but also for the growth of the business.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
Learn how to leverage data collected and analyze it
Learn how to apply lean tools & techniques during the design phase
Understand the benefit of using an Op Ex approach to help facilities plan for the futureand identify scope items that focus on the results
Understand how these techniques can minimize capital investment and staffingexpenditures
Analyze / categorize improvements to provide a business case for the project
