Has anyone attempted to measure the progress of CI programme? If so what was the method and criteria you used?

Thanks

Welcome,

A Gantt Chart for tracking planned versus actual progress and reporting/indicating percentage ahead or behind planned progress should be useful in most circumstances.

The results of the projects that are part of the CI programme should drive your plant performance metrics (scrap, uptime, ppm, ontime delivery, cycle time). The metrics should show a positive trend if the CI programme is effective. If not, you will have to look into the reasons why and augment your CI programme. (Why continue a project, if we do not see and/or can nt measure the benefits).

For precision machining the correct way to evaluate continuous improvement is to attempt to reduce the slope of tool wear, as shown in the X hi/lo-R charting methodology. This represents slower tool wear rate and fewer operator adjustments. Compressing the control limits - often the result of incorrectly using the X-bar-R chart - will only create more operator intervention and adjustment, or classic overcontrol.

For more information see: Statistical process control for precision machining

Hi !

I think the measurement comes from the target you defined. You coul associate some actions to the progress.

This is a measure of definition. We do this also in our location.

I have a similar question with respect to rolling out an enterprise wide improvement program (think Lean here). We have had good discussion on how best to measure and report on the overall program and have converged on using the business metrics (KPIs), rather than program metrics such as # of people trained, etc.

However, we are looking for a good indicator of employee engagement. So far we have "# of kaizen suggestions per employee per month" on the basis that if they are making suggestions, they are engaged.

Does anyone have a good/great way to measure this aspect of a program? Any help is appreciated.

Cheers,

Adam

I do agree that we need to focus on process and results follow. A day-to-day monitoring of the parameters like OEE, SMED, AM steps activities, 5S score-card and making them visible for all in the facility would boost this.
