Productivity Improvement by Mind Map: Productivity Improvement

1. PIM Formulation

1.1. Is based on considering all the necessary aspects for selecting the best techniques to perform significant operations that improve the productivity without increasing the risk, the fatigue, cost and time

1.1.1. 1) Needed relaxation allowances are less than those of the current used techniques.

1.1.2. 2) Associated risks are less than those of the current used techniques.

1.1.3. 3) Funds required for implementing selected techniques are less than available fund.

1.1.4. 4) Installation time for the selected techniques is less than the maximum allowable installation time.

1.1.5. 5) Allowable payback period for selected techniques is less than maximum allowable payback period as per organization policy.

1.1.6. 6) Savings from using selected techniques (or cost reduction) are in high level

2. What it is?

2.1. Some people proposed four techniques as an integrated model that shows significant improvement on both quality and productivity of products and process

2.1.1. Statistical Process Control (SPC)

2.1.2. The seven basic tools

2.1.3. KAIZEN

2.1.3.1. Japanese term of continuous improvement.

2.1.4. Total Quality Management (TQM)

3. PIM implementation

3.1. The implementation process of the PIM model requires calculation of the relaxation allowance, the standard productivity, and risks.

3.1.1. The implementation of PIM model will help the administration in the production organization.

3.1.2. To decide which techniques should be selected to reach the maximum productivity.

3.1.3. It needs input data that is related to candidate techniques and production workplace budget, annual saving.

3.1.4. Without affecting the risk, the fatigue, cost and time.

4. Relaxation allowance

4.1. It is intended to provide the worker with the opportunity to recover from the physiological and psychological effects of carrying out specified work under specified conditions and to allow attention to personal needs.

4.1.1. Fifteen factors, or variable allowances, will be evaluated which are endorsed by International Labor Office (ILO)

5. Standard productivity

5.1. The calculation process needs conducting performance rating of the worker who performs the operation and collecting observation time for all activities in the operation.

5.2. Then some formulas are applied to find the standard productivity of the technique, this calculation is carried out for different operations in a single workplace.

6. Risk calculation

6.1. A risk is combination of likelihood and consequences of a specified hazardous (potential harms in term of injury or ill)

6.2. Each methods and techniques for carrying out production operations has its level of risk

6.3. The application of this method is carried out to evaluate the risk (or collecting the severity points

6.3.1. For the selected technique and before implementing the technique at the workplace.
