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

Pfizer Chemical Corporation

Control system was designed and implemented in a professional manner by the IMPAC team, giving us a management control system which addresses and solves many of our longstanding problems, such as:

  • Backlog control
  • Planning of work

The system has given us short interval manpower control to improve productivity, as well as variance analysis, crewing guides and performance indicators which enable management to highlight and take action on operational problems hitherto difficult to reconcile and quantify.

SHARP

New management systems for production and maintenance were developed, and tactical and technical workshops were conducted with our personnel. IMPAC identified unnecessary down time in machines, and optimum production line configurations and timing were quickly established by working very closely with our personnel.

Positive behavioral change was apparent in numerous supervisors at an early stage; but this change was of greater prominence and significance towards the middle and end of project.

Improvements in efficiency started in the first few weeks of the project, and savings started to flow in at the same time. Upon reaching two-third of the project, savings were already well above the cost of the entire project.

Kedaung Industrial Ltd, Pt.

Today, our company is one of the largest manufacturers of glassware in the world.

During the 40 weeks project, the IMPAC team along with out management team had achieved the following results:

  1.      The average weekly saving for last month was 244% ROI which when annualized.
  2.       The efficiency (yield) which is used by us to measure the process productivity has been improved 31.5%
  3.       IMPAC assisted us installed a sophisticated data report system which covered all aspects of factory’s operation to summarize and report the KPIs of operation by each level.

IMPAC helped us to set up the preventive maintenance program to reduce the machine downtime caused by the breakdown, this helps for the efficiency improvement; SMED program helps us to reduce the changeover time.

Among all of these changes, I think the most important is that there was a great change, the sense of urgency when our management levels handle problems, and this change had improved the communication and cooperation among departments and management levels.

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.

McDonald’s Italia

We have increased productivity in the restaurants overall by 21% at the same time increasing sales and achieving 1,5 million euro in annualized savings, that were clearly identified in our P&L reports.

These results have been brought about mainly through implementing better behavior on the floor and improving our planning and communication practice.

The achieved behavioral change and improved communication resulting from the project will enable McDonald’s Italy to continuously improve it organization.

Aker Engineering

We entered into cooperation with IMPAC in order to develop a more efficient organization, especially through improved first line management and supervision. Special attention has been given to our staff functions and the resource allocation and planning in our engineering disciplines.

Throughout the project we have developed new and improved systems and practices for day-to-day planning and follow-up, and our supervisors have been trained to support this in the future.

Further, we have taken an important step forward in the quality of personnel planning. We have also developed methods for initiating preventing actions to avoid extensive ad hoc work.
