Our customers tell us that they experience up to a 40% decrease in the time needed to create and maintain their work instructions.
Sharing work easily across departments and locations and sharing common work across work instructions allows customers to decrease the number of standards required by up to 40%.
Internally managed authorisations with system alerts and emails reduces the lead time significantly,
Increased agility and a reduced effort for change means that continuous improvement can flourish.
Most important of all, we know how hard it is to sustain continuous improvement. The GENEO app makes it that much easier to sustain the good work by shouldering the burden of administration of work instructions.
With an interface that can be mastered in minutes and simple controlled accessibility you can empower your people to become fully engaged in the process of creating and improving their SOPs.
With single click capture of improvement ideas and problem identification it has never been easier to harness and communicate the collective understanding and experience of your teams.
Number of SOPs required
Traditionally sharing SOPs across different processes has been a complex problem employing complex document management schemes and laborious cross referencing when change happens.
The GENEO Software can allow for the controlled sharing of Job Elements across Locations, Processes and individual Work
Instructions, while at the same time maintaining clear visibility of what is shared where, and whether it is up to date.
Number of improvements
Perhaps you are lucky enough to enjoy a culture where CI contributions from your frontline are encouraged and regularly offered. Not a common occurrence, to say the least, but it is still not delivering the incremental performance increases you hoped for. All too frequently the good ideas get lost because there is no clear system for harvesting and implementing them.
Imagine if all ideas could be linked directly to the WI with a single click. Imagine also if the document owner was alerted to the input and could react rapidly to evaluate, implement and submit for sign-off in one seamless workflow. The GENEO Software offers this capability to significantly increase the agility with which your teams ideas become reality.
Time to train reduced
The GENEO Software provide a platform for generating WI that remain standard in appearance and content. Buy providing a simple method for capturing and embedding the elusive tacit knowledge of your experienced operators in your WI new learners can quickly come up to speed with the one best way to carryout out a process.
Combining this with the ability to link supporting information and documents, including video, to standards; and by utilising the on-screen presentation of WI, you enjoy a powerful training system that communicates the current version of the one best way.
Lead time to govern SOPs
Typically anything up to 4 or 5 systems might be employed to help manage the storage, distribution, feedback and progress of the governance of your documentation. The bottlenecks will be there but for the most part will be hidden and therefore difficult to eliminate.
By building the governance workflow into one system GENEO has made it possible to significantly reduce lead time to govern WIs. All dialogue around review and sign-off being kept and all electronic signatures date and time stamped to maintain a complete record of the Governance process for future auditing and understanding of change.
Demonstrating full compliance in a simple yet structured way is now possible with the GENEO Software. By making tangible links between regulations, policies, and other governing principles, directly to your processes, means change can be understood bi-directionally.
See all those process documents that have been reviewed in light of regulatory change, and more importantly, those that have not.
At Audit time demonstrate compliance by function or location, confident in the knowledge all documentation in use has been fully authorised and its visibility controlled.
Time to re-balance
With the GENEO Software, gone are the days of repositioning hundreds of bit of sticky paper in an effort to map and redesign your process flow to meet changing customer demand. Gone also is the tedious, error prone and often neglected job of updating WI to reflect the new arrangements.
With ‘Drag ’n’ Drop of work elements in the graphical Yamazumi interface, understanding of your operations is taken to a new level.
‘See’ the total cycle time in relation to the new takt and adjust in seconds, confident that the GENEO Software is taking care of the new arrangement of work in the WIs.
Tracking parts consumption at the element level, and allowing for both the addition and referencing of parts, an accurate BOM can be generated automatically as your documents evolve. Interrogating the database in terms of parts consumption and comparing this with your engineering systems parts lists provides clear understanding of parts accuracy in your documentation.
