Here are just a few things our clients have had to say about their experience with the IMPAC® productivity system.

BCM Electronics Corporation Sdn. Bhd.

The new management system that was installed in the manufacturing areas helped the supervisors to control operations at the point of execution. Furthermore, the installed controls made our people more aware of the cost implications of lost time, rejects, rework and scrap, thus making them more proactive in addressing such problems. Productivity has improved dramatically during the course of the project, from 60% last year to an average of 90% to date.

As Japanese, what IMPAC did for the last 10 months during the project, is the most basic things to do but despite the method we had before the project, if Japanese implemented the project it will not as we don’t understand the mindset and behavior of the local people. And after 10 months of the project, I can see that this project has become successful, and in this 10 months, the change on working attitude is happening among leader and group leader. I also see operators working faster than before.

IMPAC has opened a hole in the big wall which is barrier to change, and IMPAC has prepared system and coordinators (people) to demolish the wall.

I will recommend IMPAC to other companies to experience the benefits which I had and will continue to gain.

The results of the past 10 months showed that the installation of IMPAC Implementation program successfully activated a transparent system enabling a better understanding and follow-up responsibilities.

Our supervisors and managers were able to utilize performance indexes to measure and confront low performance. They have become enthusiastic and proactive in achieving their responsibilities.
