Whether we like it or not, change is on the horizon for steel manufacturers and fabricators and there are many challenges facing the steel industry. According to our research, the businesses that will survive are the ones who are prepared to change.
We hear there is a need to develop new structure and operational business models for Australian manufacturers and fabricators with a focus on productivity improvement to ensure that your business survives, grows and stays safe.
A continuous improvement ethic needs to be embedded into all work, which provides an umbrella above incremental improvement to stimulate significant productivity gains by directly rewarding employees.
We have noticed real time feedback must be provided in order to respond to leading rather than lagging indicators and develop daily corrective actions in line with the demands of the business.
Most of our customers are way ahead with this journey of change and some have completely reinvented themselves. Our SER® process has identified ways in which we as a supplier can improve and change the way we do things also to directly impact these customers in a very positive way.
We have found, our customers pursue the SER® as a vehicle to look at their business in a different way to make some small changes to reap big rewards. The Steel Efficiency Review® aims to provide recommendations to support our customer’s business and at the same time improve our product and service offer.
