Nahm Sanitaryware Co., Ltd

As we have seen, the managers and supervisors have improved the control of their operations, and now have a much greater awareness of their performance. We are now able to better communicate goals through all levels of the company, plan our resources according to our real needs, follow-up to ensure the plan is executed and tackle all variances to plan. As a result of the reporting system installed and the key performance indicators tracked, our people are now very much focused on taking preventive and corrective action promptly.

As a result of the ACCESS Communication and Leadership training that has coincided with the installation of the Management Control System, we have noticed a positive change in the supervisors’ behaviors. The IMPAC team was worked very closely with our people throughout the process, to ensure a successful transfer of skills and methodology, ensuring ownership on the systems installed.

Our people, especially the first line supervision, are now equipped with sound management fundamentals and had learned to utilize performance indices to confront poor performances. 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 this project, from 60% last year to an average of 90% to date.

The ACCESS training sessions had aided the managers, supervisors, and group leader realize, to a great extend, their roles and responsibilities in the management chain. The one on one coaching sessions had helped a lot in transforming theories and concepts to practical on the job application.

Results of the past months showed that the installation of IMPAC 10000 gives a transparent system enabling an easier definition and follow-up of responsibilities. It makes it possible to track frequent and avoidable problems and take actions in order to eliminate them.

 Working together with IMPAC showed that it is an important role and task of the managers to make sure that the time available for preventive maintenance is used in the most effective way. This leads to decrease in the frequency and duration of emergency breakdowns.

Paglieri Sell System

The management systems have been changed, there have been changes in the planning procedures and in the methods of evaluating results.

We achieved good results in the warehouse operations and in labour savings. These results have consolidated and they keep improving.

In 2006 we started another, more difficult, project with IMPAC, with the goal of improving the productivity, and therefore reducing the costs, of the merchandisers organization that refills the supermarkets all over Italy.

We’re achieving very good results and there are signs that show additional improvements.

Latinusa, Pt. (Krakatau Steel Group)

As for the results, it is quite obviously seen and felt in our bottom-line. As in any business prone to mood swings in the market, we too had our fair share of up and down moments but in the end I can say we had achieved the set targets of 100 % payback in pocket and an annualized savings of 300 % by end of the project.

I am very satisfied with the behavior change of my people.

I have personally benefitted from going through this IMPAC project. I now know it is possible to measure performance at the point of execution through selective key performance indicators.

Sanyo

The first reaction to IMPAC supervision was that we were astonish that the IMPAC team could, through their professionalism, collect and analyze data from various sectors with high efficiency and accuracy within such a short period of time. And furthermore, the “Training” and “Monthly Progress” presentations to the Sanyo’s staff was excellent in which I myself had gained much knowledge and experiences that I was not aware during my years of working life.

The very thing about IMPAC System program is that, it is also mean to reform PT. SANYO Compressor Indonesia to achieve cultural assimilation. We could know see significant changes in the attitude and way of thinking of the Local Managers and Frontline Supervisors and Leaders, even though they were not that enthusiastic in the beginning.
