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.

Things are getting done since the workshop started

Operative

Firstly, Reckitt Benckiser and LI pulled together to improve efficiency levels and there was a focus on both external and internal resources. Before LI arrived efficiency was not good. Secondly, there was good methodology and training using operators to support its implementation. Thirdly, there was daily and hourly focusing on performance. Since LI left, improvements have been sustained.
