The OTIF Improvement System

Do you want to improve your OTIF (On Time in Full) delivery performance without the need for ‘blood, sweat and tears’?

Over the years I have helped numerous companies to improve their on-time delivery performance as part of my consulting services. These companies used a combination of the tools, strategies and methods that I share in this system.

This system is designed to be used ‘out of the box’ to give you a quick start to achieve results if you are under pressure right now. It also includes guidance to help you fine tune the system for your business and implement a management system to consistently achieve high levels of OTIF.

Objectives for The OTIF Improvement System

When I work with my consulting clients I want them to benefit from all the good things that delivering on time can bring:
  • Eliminating the ‘blood, sweat and tears’ of juggling / ducking and diving to achieve good OTIF levels.
  • Winning additional business from being the best supplier in a sector.
  • Realising higher levels of productivity and capacity from eliminating the chaos that can cripple your teams.
  • Improving profit levels from reducing the lag, rework, overtime and confusion in the business.
  • Having more fun at work!
These are the same objectives I have for The OTIF Improvement System, this is what I expect you to experience if you buy and implement the tools I share within this system.

What results are possible with this system?

Whilst there is a raft of case study examples that I could quote to you about the results this system can achieve, let me tell you briefly about three that stand out:
  • One of my clients was at the bottom of their supply chain league table and at risk of being ‘exited’. This would mean closure for the business but through the rigorous application of this system they became the top supplier within 3 months and guaranteed more business.
  • Another client was staggered at the amount of extra business they won from being a ‘reliable supplier’. With the changes my system brought them they were able to increase their output by 150% without the need for any additional staff through the enhanced productivity the system naturally releases.
  • I personally used these tools (as I started to develop my system) as a Production Manager. Our OTIF performance was around 22%and we had a lead time through the business of just under 20 weeks. Within 6 months we were averaging 98% OTIF and our lead time had dropped to just over 3 weeks. We became the global #1 in our group for performance and profitability.
I should add that most of my clients don’t use all of the parts of my system either; you can witness great results by just applying a handful of the elements.

So, what’s included in this system?

When you purchase this system, you get access to the following:
  • A 44 page PDF instruction guide that covers the main system elements and a range of continuous improvement opportunities.
  • 4 ready to use (short) management meeting agendas – the backbone of this system.
  • 8 worksheets to help you refine and develop this system for your business.
  • 7 worked examples so you can understand how this system works.
  • 1 improvement action plan format to help you capture and manage this period of change through your business.
  • 1 PowerPoint slide deck to help you explain the system to your team as part of your implementation.
  • A 30 day email coaching programme, to help you get the most out of this system.
Based on experience, this should comfortably help you achieve your OTIF improvement objectives, even if you are incredibly pushed for time. The email coaching course is designed to help you implement the ideas by showing you some shortcuts through the system. When you start to see improvements happening your day-to-day working life should improve, allowing you to fully implement the rest of the system.

Delivering results for my clients

If you are wondering what my credentials are to create this system,then let me assure you that I have been through this particular journey many times. From my early days in Production Management, through to leading a complete business transformation as an Operations Manager, or with my clients as a Consultant.

I usually get brought in to help businesses that have a delivery related problem:
  • Customer complaints based around poor delivery performance.
  • Project deadlines that don’t look like they can be achieved.
  • Too much management time being required to get products, or services, delivered.
  • Reduced profit margins due to excessive overtime/ rework / inefficient management systems.
The OTIF Improvement System is designed to remedy all of these above points; it is a system based on experience and real-world results.

If you don’t think that this system is going to help your business improve its delivery performance and improve your business’ overall results then just drop me a line and I will arrange a full refund for you.

So, this leaves me with one question to ask you…

“Are you ready to stop running around trying to achieve your OTIF improvement objective and try a systematic approach instead?”

I hope that you take advantage of this offer and look forward to hearing about your results!

Take the pressure off! Using the Y-curve with your Kaizen improvements

Do you feel under pressure when you have to make changes happen in your business? It can be scary when we try something that we have never done before. I remember thinking to myself 'how on Earth am I going to figure this out?' on many occasions. I think the last time was a few weeks ago! Years on from becoming reasonable at the art of change I am still faced with the same dilemma. It is scary and it is clear to me why so many people shy away from making change happen. It is natural to get stuck in this oscillation. On one hand you need to make change happen; the business needs the improvement benefits. On the other hand you don't want to screw up... Last week I was talking to a young engineer that I am mentoring. He was paralysed. Changes were not happening at all. There was always some early promise with his projects and then, as completion (and judgement day) loomed, progress would evaporate. The engineer asked me for my views on this  during a recent conversati

Do you need a burst of improvement ideas for your business?

If you haven’t created your improvement action plan for 2020 yet then I have something for you. I have just completed my latest project – The CI Focus Tool . This Android App is now available on Google Play and provides a simple method for generating as many effective improvement ideas as you need. This is the same basic method that I describe in my book Effective Continuous Improvement  and is now available as a simple to use app. In essence it is a brainstorming focus tool. Press the focus button and you will be presented with a random continuous improvement focus. Brainstorm ideas around this focus with your team (whilst the timer is running) and there you go – a number of great ideas for you to prioritise and implement. The reason that this works so well is because of the focus. When your business runs out of its immediate problems to fix you need a different strategy. Very focused brainstorming helps you break past this problem and configuring the app to meet t
