1. PRODUCTIVITY IMPROVEMENT TRAINING

Introduction
With the difficult economic times affecting business, there is a great need to improve productivity so as to produce more products and services at lower costs. This translates to competitive prices and increased profit through higher volume sales while the consumers have a greater value for money.

Objectives of the Course

The main objective of the course is to enlighten the participants on the various ways of improving productivity and measuring it. Specific objectives are as follows:-
1. To help the participants understand what productivity is
2. To show participants how to improve productivity.
3. To show participants how to measure productivity.

Contents of the Course
• Productivity Definitions
• Efficiency Improvement
• Product Quality
• Wastage Reduction
• Time Management
• Energy Conservation
• Productivity Measurements
    i. Production and lost times recording
    ii. Efficiency and lost times calculation
    iii. Output Vs Plan
    iv. Labour Productivity
    v. Material Yields

2. OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS (OEE) TRAINING

Introduction
With the need to improve the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) of the factory, it is very important that the factory team understands how OEE is measured (calculated) and how to collect accurate data for accurate OEE measurements.

Course Participants:
The course is for a maximum of twenty participants.

Objective of the Course
The overall objective of the course is to explain and demonstrate the practical use of OEE as it relates to improved productivity and reduced costs.

The specific gains to the participants will be the following:
1. Understand the concept of OEE and indices calculations.
2. Accurate recording of production and downtimes data
3. Understand the 6 major losses
4. Be able to observe and calculate the effect of the 6 losses
5. Know what actions to take to reduce losses
