Analytical method for improvements – reorganization


What the situations should look like, be aware of improvements evolve analytical methods and systems so as to finally implement the improvements for profitability and over all improvements.

Analysis means getting a grip on the problem and creating a structure so that the problem does not recur. The difference between the problem situation and the desirable / ideal situation is due to the waste, strain, inconsistency and loss being incurred.

Analysis is used as a way to discover clues for improvements, and used in reorganization. Analysis is used to make an improvement plan for the set objective systematize to set standards. In addition, analysis is used to measure the effects of an improvement plan when it is put into practice.

Analysis is used to compare the present situation with what the situation should be. If “reorganization� is supposed to mean “keeping necessary things and getting rid of unnecessary things,� the handling of analysis and problem items will be different than if it is supposed to mean “grouping necessary and unnecessary things into categories, deleting unnecessary things, and grouping necessary things by purpose, function, and type, and storing them for easy access.

Analysis used to set the objective helps choose a main objective which will be profitable, by understanding obvious problems and occurring losses and examining data, etc., and sets sub-objectives which will work as structural elements. This is mainly macro-analysis which looks for loss and waste.

Analysis used for systematization considers what sort of structures each of the system elements should have if the goals and directions of the objective improvements are to be successful. Then the analysis is used to decide whether or not these structures are viable and consider the necessary methods.
Basic analysis and point-of-emphasis analysis the two level structure

(a) Two-level structural analysis is used for setting the objective as well as for systematization.
(b) Basic analysis is used, for example, to analyze what shelves in what work place should be improved. Point-of-emphasis analysis what type of improvements should be done.
(c) After analysis, the results are combined, and creativity is used to accomplish improvements

In analyzing loss, various types of strain, waste, and inconsistencies will appear. Find out at least five. Combine them, and then set about five tentative improvement objectives, and set the direction for improvement. This is the creative indicator for improvement implementation.
In order to fulfill the improvement indicator (purpose) as described above, think of various methods of improvements, and, from these, select the one which fulfills most of the objectives and costs the least.
