"Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can't measure something, you can't understand it. If you can't understand it, you can't control it. If you can't control it, you can't improve it."
- H. James Harrington
ProMISe helps with incorporating Continuous Improvement as a way of working, as the improvement cycle PDCA is completely embedded in the system. It is an integral system with centralised information provision, event registration and actionlists that are transparant to everyone. To be able to improve and to apply fact-based management it is key to collect data. Data is gathered by registering all events in the processes. For example disruptions in the production process or incidents related to QHSE. Improvement actions can be initiated based on analyses of these disruptions.
To successfully integrate Continuous Improvement in your organisation it is essential to make the employees aware of the importance of it. They are gathering the data on the workshop and can make improvement proposals. By stimulating them to do that as good as possible and to come with those proposals, in small steps you ensure greater involvement and an increased job satisfaction. A more efficient production and cost reduction are logical effects thereof.
Continuous improvement in three steps with ProMISe:
1. Collecting data
2. Verifying the data
3. Analyses and improvement actions
