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

Nizhpharm OAO

We have, over the years invested much into gaining our current position in the top 3 of the Russian pharmaceutical industry.

I am glad to say that our decision to employ IMPAC this year in order to increase the productivity of our production department was a move in the same direction. In the past six months we have seen a productivity increase that has brought us savings due to the efforts of the IMPAC team.  We have seen our supervisors go from tracking the processes they are responsible for to actively planning and seeking out improvements.

IMPAC’s approach is simple, systematic, and effective. The Management Control System installed have been of great help in identifying improvement opportunities and subsequently, in taking prompt action.

During the project, our Managers and Supervisors have received valuable management training both theoretical and practical, this together with a simple, systematic and effective Management Control System has given us significant improvements in all installation areas.

Due to your method of combining management training with process development, we have managed to change the behavior of our managers and supervisors. In addition, communication within and between departments has also improved significantly.

 IMPAC worked closely with our people to design new systems that focused on the key points of control. Everything was examined and analysed in detail, including our standard times, crewing levels and scheduling. Improved scheduling with tighter control allowed us to save in excess of $100,000 in Overtime costs in the month of October alone.

Training of our people has been integral part of the project. I found Access Management training to be simple and effective in getting our people to see their roles and responsibilities in the new systems and change process.

I would njot hesitate to recommend IMPAC to anyone keen on seeing sustainable improvement made in their companies, especially in these challenging times that we are faced with.

We see the improvement everyday. IMPAC’s team showed us hidden opportunities, which we did not see before and show us capability of our people by increasing their involvement. IMPAC team cooperates with all levels of our management very professionally and helps us to structure responsibilities at all levels. Our managers see now new opportunities for their departments and the whole company. People started working as a team, are more involved in their every day tasks and are happy when they see improvements.

The IMPAC operation covered the determination of precise operational goals for all management levels, optimization of planning process and resource allocation, implementation of control, performance follow up and reporting tools, and as the most important point improving information flow channels and personal responsibilities.

Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad

Two main goals were to improve the overall performance of our operations through behaviour change of the employees and to realize a break-even situation between fees paid to IMPAC and savings in operational costs before the end of the year. Both targets were met as promised and your enthusiastic and professional project team was instrumental in this.

Our people, especially the first line supervision, are now equipped with sound management fundamentals and have learned to utilize performance indices to confront poor performances. The new management system that was installed in the manufacturing areas helped supervisors to control operations at the point of execution.

Furthermore, the installed controls made our peoples more aware of the cost implications of lost time, rejects, rework and scrap, thus making them proactive in addressing such problems. Productivity has improved dramatically during the course of the project.
