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.

This is the best I’ve seen this line run…I never thought we’d be able to get it up to this speed.

Before LI came we were a family run company and things had been done the same way for a hundred years. There was a lot of apprehension but the LI team had such a great way with people they won us over. People took to them. LI were great for our company and the systems they introduced are still in place.
