Our expertise.

Our expertise is in lifting operational productivity to a level beyond that of your competition. To do this, we focus on strategy, process and people.

OPERATIONAL STRATEGY

LMAC has developed and refined a Strategy Build Model specifically for the New Zealand business environment that engages all levels of an organisation. It is unique, tried and tested, and has delivered amazing results across different industries from Healthcare, Veterinary and Laboratory, to FMCG and Manufacturing.

We use our significant first-hand experience of leadership to develop training and mentoring programs that align directly with your organisation’s problems and goals. Unlike many leadership programs, our mentors have years of experience tackling persistent problems and helping teams achieve business goals. Our programs are results-based, and we’ll help you measure the outcome of your investment.

People Development

process design

Any business operation from service provision to manufacturing products is a series of processes. Whether automated or manual these processes need to be balanced and work in harmony to ensure inputs are minimised and outputs maximised. Process architecture is the foundation of operational productivity.

LMAC are leading Industry 4.0 initiatives across New Zealand by partnering with highly regarded institutions such as Callaghan Innovation and EMA (Employers and Manufacturers Association). Together, we’re focusing attention on technologies that are capable of delivering significant benefits to New Zealand’s SME landscape in an affordable and practical way.

Complete the questions below to test your data maturity.

Over the next two years, which three of the 14 key performance indicators do you most want to improve on as a business?

Make a note of these before you carry on reading.

The key 14 performance indicator categories:

Productivity

  • Asset & equipment efficiency
  • Inventory efficiency
  • Materials efficiency
  • Utilities efficiency
  • Workforce efficiency

Flexibility

  • Planning & scheduling effectiveness
  • Production flexibility
  • Workforce flexibility

Speed

  • Time to market
  • Time to delivery

Quality

  • Product quality
  • Process quality
  • Safety
  • Security

Now ask yourself – what is your current performance against these three KPIs? Can you tell me how you performed in the last hour, yesterday or last week?

If you can’t answer this question for all three because you aren’t measuring the data, then the next step is clear. Figure out what data you need to enable you to measure it, and decide how you are going to collect that data.

If you can answer it historically; last week or last month – ask yourself, is this retrospective view sufficient for me to really make improvements?

If you can answer it for all three up to the minute, then it is quite possible that shopfloor intelligence isn’t a number one priority for you. Look out for parts 2 and 3 of this blog series for some more insights into how you can make the data work for you.
