Voortdurende Verbetering

Status quo is equal to moving backward

Continuous improvement is an evolutionary journey—not just the current state—for situations, systems, and processes. Today’s organizations are awash with data, providing endless opportunities to build incremental efficiencies in many areas.

To maximize improvement opportunities, CI initiatives focus efforts around specific objectives in order to drive targeted improvements.

Wat Diagnostiek is

Inject clarity and speed while ensuring the right results are achieved

  • Doing nothing is not a viable option! 

    To thrive you must continuously improve and refine all aspects of your business. Success is found in identifying the best areas for improvement to maximize value creation with the limited resources you have available.

  • Prioritize what’s most important

    Finding the most direct route to the best improvement opportunities yields greater results in an accelerated timeframe. Executing too many projects in an unfocused manner diminishes the potential for value.

  • Build and support analytic thinking skills

    Understanding how to use data to support analytic problem solving and decision making enables employees to pursue improvements and identify potential risks and opportunities.

  • Without sustainability, performance will regress

    After a period of time, people tend to revert back to the previous norm. Sustainability must be built into improvements so that change continues to be reinforced and measured going forward.

CI is more than transformational, enterprise-level changes

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

When structured, analytic problem solving and decision making work in concert with Six Sigma and Lean initiatives, organizations maximize continuous improvement efforts to build quality and efficiency and to drive out waste.



After a major capital investment at its biscuit factory at Papakura, Griffin's needed to address several variables impacting overall conversion cost. The site was struggling with high waste, high downtime and planning deficiencies. Overall workflow was not conducive to producing at the lowest possible conversion cost.


Verbetering van de operationele efficiëntie


Verbetering van het productietempo


Voor de algemene resultaten werd de Operationele Efficiëntie (OE) - de meting van de lijnprestaties ten opzichte van een theoretisch maximaal haalbare verwerkingssnelheid - gebruikt om het succes te meten. Om een OE van 100% te bereiken, moet de productielijn tegen de maximale theoretische verwerkingssnelheid draaien zonder uitvaltijd en productverspilling. Aan het einde van de KT-opdracht bereikte de fabriek:
