Operational Improvement

Operational improvement is often a fundamental requirement and continuous effort for any organization that wishes to succeed in today’s environment of change and challenge. Along with operational efficiency, it can play an enormous role driving growth and profitability. Kepner-Tregoe (KT) works with clients to reduce waste, lower costs, and set up sustainable programs that achieve dependable outcomes. Kepner-Tregoe often uses overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), a valuable key performance indicator, to diagnose the utilization of operations. 

KT processes improve operational efficiency by ensuring intelligent use of limited resources. Kepner-Tregoe methods engage our clients in a diagnostic process tailored to uncover opportunities which may include improving conversion cost, unit cost reduction or increasing throughput to generate higher yields.
