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.

Kaizen improvements need to be specific

Do you find that your Kaizen improvements don't always go to plan? If you do, then you're with the majority! Whilst there is great deal of 'trial and error' there is a simple approach that can help. Available from Amazon Being specific about critical parts of your improvement can uplift your results. So, how do you go about doing this? The most direct route is to be clear about which parts of your improvement are critical. From here you can explain, in detail, what you want for those items. This might take some practice as many of us have become lazy in this regard. We take it for granted that our team 'get us' and will know what they need to do. If you ever feel that something basic is missing from an improvement ask this question: "What does good look like?" The answer should put you back on track.

Where to start with Kaizen, if you just aren't sure

Kaizen is a great word. It is a word that can unleash the potential of both a business and an individual. Kaizen means more than just continuous improvement. It is a word that is linked to: Confidence Growth Exploration Courage Many people I speak to, that are new to improvement projects, aren't sure if they are on the right path when it comes to embracing the spirit of Kaizen. If you are also one of these people then let me share with you a few thoughts that can help you feel at ease about starting and leading change. Start with your concerns A great place to start your improvement life is with anything that isn't right. Getting your concerns out into the open really is the first step for most of us. If you aren't happy with something, raise it. This isn't only a great place to start, but something that you shouldn't give up. Whenever a standard is not being met, or not even defined, get vocal and then do something about it. Start small The intention of Kaizen is

Stimulating Kaizen opportunities - the 'mechanical' way!

I often end up in conversations about how to stimulate Kaizen ideas and opportunities. If you have read my other posts, you will know that I split the improvement journey into two halves. For many people, the initial Kaizen focus is all around fixing things that are wrong / not working properly. Once you get past this point you need something else to focus and motivate you to generate improvement opportunities. The two halves of the Kaizen journey The discussion that I often end up in, is the one around the imagination quandary. People talk to me about not being creative, or not being inspired to come up with improvement ideas. Do you ever feel this way? It seems that there is a popular view that some people are creative and some aren't. Great Kaizen ideas are not just the product of 'creative' people. There are lots of ways that you can generate improvement ideas without having to sit on a mountain top cross legged waiting for inspiration. Finding a 'mechanical' w
