How to create and maintain efficient processes
Laubrass can assist your company to increase profitability and be more competitive in the global market by helping your team develop efficient processes. How do we do this? It's easy, we work with you to deliver the best tools and train you on best practices
to optimize your time and thereby increase your profits.
The globalization of the marketplace makes it vital for businesses to become increasingly competitive and well organized. For example, two similar sized companies who manufacture a similar product and who are both established in the same part of the country
will have very similar production costs (same supply costs for raw materials, same labor costs, etc.). The main difference between the two companies resides in their respective manufacturing methods and in the way that they organize work and work-related
These two factors could make the difference between the success and failure of a company. When looking at all work-related processes, whether they are production or administration, we find value added (VA) activities and non-value added (NVA) activities.
A value added activity is defined as being an activity (operation or service) for which customers are prepared to accept the costs (examples: welding, folding, milling). On the other hand, a non-value added activity is, from the point of view of the
customer, unnecessary and even pointless (examples: waiting periods, delays, transportation).
By minimizing your non-value adding activities, you can maximize value adding activities, thereby increasing your productivity.
Laubrass specializes in productivity studies that focus on production units and administrative processes. Using software from the innovative UMT Products line, consultants are able to quickly and effectively identify the Value Added (VA) and Non-Value
Added (NVA) activities within any given organization. For examples of how other organizations are using UMT Products in their productivity studies, visit the case studies section of this website.
