">Delivery Performance Improvement – Next Era Consulting

Delivery Performance Improvement

Our delivery performance service depends on the area of delivery we will work on.  There are three possibilities, or combination of:  

Production performance

The world of production is constantly evolving with newer and better
technologies being introduced, enabling ever quicker, accurate and efficient processing. In a similar way the tools for managing production are also advancing and nowadays IT solutions for production enable meticulous access and control on each and every aspect of the process. Nevertheless, fulfilling all production orders on time, rapidly and cost effectively remains as big a challenge as it has always been.

This is a result of some profound believes that were never challenged and the continuous use of the decision-making practices that were invented in the pre-computer era. 

Through the introduction of appropriate new rules for production planning aimed at maximizing shop-floor flow, focusing attention on production execution and instilling the culture and practice of continuous improvement substantial performance improvements are realized and sustained. 

The objectives of this service are:

Reduce production lead-time

Meaningfully enhance supply reliability

Increase Productivity

Reduce Work-In-Process and Finished Goods stock

Improve cost-effectiveness

Supply-Chain Performance (with/without Production)

Supply chains are the enabling vehicle of companies for executing their business strategy. The current volatile and unpredictable reality is reshaping the business world and enhances the necessity of supply chains to become ever more responsive, flexible, efficient and resilient. The competition is shifting from competition between companies to competition between supply chains. Supply chain leaders, and their organizations are facing new and growing challenges in multiple areas and in the light of this reality of instability they need to re-evaluate, rethink and reinvent their supply chain processes and practices.

Supply chain complexity is ever growing, demands are increasing and the new era technologies for supply chains are overwhelming, still having the right inventory, at the right time, at the right place, at the right quantity remains the key challenge and performance around these indicators is almost not improving. 

What holds performance back is the continuous belief that inventory should be positioned as close as possible to the consumption unavoidably resulting with a “push” to forecast operational model, coupled with the continued use of outdates, pre computer era decision making practices. 

Shifting the supply chain to “pull” based on consumption and up-to-date new decision-making rules that harness the power of technology results with much lower inventories across the supply chain and at the same time, almost perfect availability. 

The objectives of this service are:

Reduce Supply time

Meaningfully enhance supply reliability/ Service levels

Increase Productivity

Reduce stocks

Improve cost-effectiveness

Project Performance  

Anyone that has ever tried to complete a project so that it meets its budget, time and scope requirements, knows that this is a very challenging task; immediately as you manage to get the project under control handling one issue, a new one is bound to arise, taking it out of control again and the task of completing the project on time, in full and within budget seems to be less and less attainable. This difficulty is meaningfully enhanced in multi-project environments, where in addition to the ‘natural’ difficulties, comes a procedural one – the fight over resources availability.

Project environments are an intersection between networks of tasks and a matrix resource organization operating in high uncertainty. Successfully completing all projects depends on effective synchronization.

Through the introduction of appropriate new rules for project planning aimed at maximizing project and task flow, focusing attention on project execution and instilling the culture and practice of continuous improvement substantial performance improvements are realized and sustained. 

The objectives of this service are:

Reduce projects cycle-time

Meaningfully enhance project completion reliability

Increase the project organization Productivity

Improve cost-effectiveness
