60% Improvement in Production

“Grass America had a particular manufacturing area that was underperforming and struggling to meet customer demand. The only solution we had at first was to increase manpower. This was not acceptable so we turned to The Dorsey Group for assistance.

Working with The Dorsey Group enabled us to achieve improvements in production pieces/hour of 60% and 75% and improvement in OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) of 18 and 26 percentage points. Their training has also enabled us to not only maintain these improvements but to continually improve on them as well. Needless to say, these results more than paid for this investment.”

Tom Kipp, President

Grass America

5x Increase in Production

“As a  start-up biotechnology company, we were scrambling to manufacture enough product to meet the demands of the impending flu season.

Thanks to The Dorsey Group we experienced a dramatic increase in production. Our units/day output for 2 product components went from 1,400 to 2,500, and from 40 to 200.

This allowed us to meet demand and focus on other rate-limiting factors to increase productivity even more. Just as important, the tools and knowledge we gained from The Dorsey Group jump-started a cultural change where productivity improvement has become a key organizational strategy.”

Why Your Performance Will Kick into Overdrive with Kaizen Plus

We’ll teach you how to use Kaizen, the renowned Japanese improvement process, to turn around any area of your business. Operations, product development, customer service, or sales.

  • Increase product availability, capacity, and on-time delivery by turning around performance killers that slip by 90% of business leaders.
  • Save money by eliminating the root causes of your performance problems. You’ll no longer waste resources fixing symptoms that don’t resolve your issues.
  • Eliminate hidden waste and errors that silently shrink your profit margins.
  • Raise your customer-satisfaction scores by rectifying elusive quality and service issues.
  • Remove accountability headaches. You’ll have a collaborative structure that gives employees more control and motivation to deliver on their commitments.
  • While your team’s enthusiasm sustains their constant improvements, leadership can step away to work on strategic initiatives.
  • Let go of the reins and watch morale skyrocket because your employees feel like valued contributors to a winning team.
