Laundry Suite - the details

Realising your potential step by step through maximum daily operation effectiveness and factbased long-term decisionmaking

TARGETS : Maximum operation effectiveness in the daily operation and maximum decision effectiveness in the long-term decisions – because bad planning ruins good production

Maximum operation effectiveness in the daily operation

• Optimised flow of goods

• Optimised capacity utilisation

• Optimised employee allocation.

Maximum decision effectiveness in the long-term decisions

• Fact-based decision basis

• All alternatives are clarified, analysed and impact described

• The optimal alternative is pinpointed for each decision

• Each target alternative is followed by a production plan draft

• Each production plan can be trained in a virtual model of the laundry

BOTTOMLINE : The advantages & value creation

• Higher production efficiency and/or greater output

• Fewer person dependencies

• Clarified & fact-based decisions, on short & long term

• Full documentation of decisions, their alternatives, and their consequences

FOCUSPOINT 1 : Maximum operation effectiveness focused on tomorrow’s bottom line

• Put numbers on the assumptions (objectify)

• Identify & handle bottlenecks

• Focus call-off at net demand

• Optimise call-off sequences

• Eliminate person dependencies

• Usher specific measures to improve daily operations

• Introduce systematic alignment of expectations of efforts & performances

• Introduce systematic, focused follow-up on efforts & performance

• Implement model-based cost accounting of all items in the production

FOCUSPOINT 2 : Maximum decision effectiveness before the decisions turn into costs

• Model and calibrate the laundry, as it is today (the baseline scenario) – for comparison

• Put numbers on the assumptions (objectify)

• Analyse and document the consequences of alternative scenarios (investigative scenarios)

• Pinpoint and recommend the optimal set-up (the target scenario)

• Carry out and document all relevant calculations and KPIs for the target scenario

• Implement model-based cost accounting of all items in the target scenario

• Analyse the target scenario’s sensitivity to volume and product mix changes

• Craft an implementation plan for the production in the target scenario

• Supervise implementation in the real laundry

THE 10 STEPS : The normal project process

1. Initial analysis

2. Task delimitation, requirements specification, and kick-off with the laundry

3. Data collection and operating logics

4. Modeling & calibration, baseline (“as-is”)

5. Modeling, the alternatives (“futures”)

6. Simulation runs & analyses

7. Selection and documentation of target scenario(s)

8. Final report & delivery, incl. visualisations & video clips

9. Support in the laundry’s presentation and decision making process

10. Instruction & model training

Normal project duration: 1 month from the dataset is available.
