Private/Public Utilities Need LeanAs a project-based industry, all utility companies suffer from massive amounts of waste due to inefficiencies that arise from siloed operations, systems and data. Disconnected processes and poor visibility into project performance results in inflated costs with unnecessarily large buffers and slack to account for these inherent inefficiencies.
In today’s ever-changing economy, utilities are required to deal with any number of difficult issues, including aging infrastructure, ever-changing regulations, increasing customer expectations and escalating demand. Utility companies also have to identify and react to new opportunities faster than ever, streamline operations and improve efficiencies.
The utility industry is constantly changing and compliance requirements are stringent. You need to operate as lean as possible to keep control over your processes yet remain flexible enough to respond quickly to external factors.
Applying Lean to Utilities
Traditional manufacturing boosted productivity tremendously by adopting lean and MRPII together in the early 1990s. These changes broke down the organizational silos and transformed the industry. We can apply this same model to the utility sector, using a fully integrated ERP to facilitate a lean transformation in your organization.
By adopting a lean approach, you can:
- Remove Inefficiencies - Align your organization, work faster and respond to changes more effectively.
- Improve Decision Making - Increase visibility to identify and react to risks early before they manifest into bigger problems.
- Increase Accountability - Gain control over your processes, stay in compliance, and learn as an organization.
