Workshop: The Manufacturing Game®: Create a Reliability Culture
- 24th May 2016 - 25th May 2016
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join The Manufacturing Game® Workshop on 24th – 25th May to accelerate performance improvement and cultural change in your organisation. The Manufacturing Game is
a dynamic experiential learning simulation, which has been used by more than 150 of the world’s best organisations to help deliver superior bottom line results.
The Game teaches systems thinking; how the actions of one area impacts the function of another and the profitability of the whole. It helps people to shift their thinking to new ways of working – cross-functional, cross-asset, and cross-organisation.
- Developing strategy for performance improvement
- Facilitating cultural change
- Creating high performance teamwork
- Accelerating results from current improvement programmes
- Significant reductions in failures and costs
- Up to 10:1 ROI within twelve months
A primary output of the workshop is the formation of small cross-functional action teams of your people to implement workshop learning by eliminating real life defects. These defects are often ‘invisible’ to managers and engineers as they are ingrained in work practices and operational methods, but can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds in lost productivity. Typically such defects can be eliminated in less than 90 days for little or no expense, but often with significant benefit for the business – a return on investment of up to 10:1 in twelve months. But it’s not just about a two-day workshop, it’s about imbedding the improvement process in to your organisation and transforming organisational culture to achieve sustainable results.
The Manufacturing Game® Workshop:
- Allows you to experience how operational excellence can be achieved in a true-to-life simulation, providing
inspiration and highlighting areas where improvements can be made within your own organisation.
- Demonstrates the value of balancing a top-down project approach to performance improvement with
a proactive bottom-up focus on defect elimination.
- Shows the different impact that functional and cross-functional thinking can have on the efficiency of other
departments and the profitability of the whole enterprise.
- Provides the experience of turning theory into practice. The theory of reliability and operations excellence
is largely well known. The Manufacturing Game® provides a practice ground for how it can be realised
- Helps align the functions in your organisation to your overall business goals.
- Energises frontline staff to take action to remove thousands of defects that are the root cause of Reliability,
Quality, Efficiency and HSE performance issues.
