Improvement Toolkit / Opportunity Matrix

Opportunity Matrix Model

  • Have you got an accurate handle on the potential benefit from improvement activity, or are you uncertain if you are double counting?
  • Do you find your people constantly creating payback estimations for scratch?
  • Do projects paybacks look good on paper, but then don’t appear to materialise on project completion?

The opportunity matrix model uses debottlenecking method thinking, to build a SKU group level based matrix, that determines what the value return would be from manufacturing performance improvement, or the upgrading of manufacturing or packing equipment.

The Opportunity Matrix Model is always created bespoke for a site, taking into the unique configurations and scenarios that exist on each manufacturing site. The final model can then be used to generate multiple improvement scenarios, and compare the relative benefit of improvement on different lines, generate paybacks for capital projects, and compare them with the opportunities available from non-capital improvement.

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient.
