Cost-Competitiveness Improvement through MCPD Transformation (3 days)

Next Open Session: June 19/20/21, 2019 - Sibiu

What is this program and why is it unique and innovative?

To be honest, many of those who make improvements just review what has already been designed. There are many companies that use certain systems called Continuous Improvement or Operational Excellence (based on Total Quality Management (TQM); Industrial Engineering (IE); Just-In-Time (JIT); Lean Manufacturing (LM); Six Sigma and World Class Manufacturing (WCM), which simply reorient intelligent and well-intentioned people’s efforts, run a large part of Kaizen’s projects unnecessarily, and many production programs are as they have been designed from the beginning. The common denominator of these companies is the same: ensuring an acceptable level of effectiveness and efficiency for current production method, but does not in any way guarantee consistent and scientific cost reduction and continuous achievement of Annual and especially Multiannual Target Profit. As from the MCPD perspective, between 30-50% of the unit cost of each Product Family Costs (PFC) is associated with Cost of Losses and Waste (CLW), MCPD through Exegens® guarantees min. 6% annual unit cost improvement for minimum 5 consecutive years.

During this training program, through the three organizational practice simulation discussions, the participants better understand the practical approach to Cost Improvement by applying MCPD and learn to apply Kaizen and Kaikaku to meet Cost Improvement Targets in order to move towards an innovative management model needed to support a Cost Improvement transformation to ensure continuous and consistent company profitability.

In this context, achieving an acceptable level of long-term profitability requires the full involvement of management teams and all staff from the company and beyond. MCPD through Exegens® does this (see the example below).

Therefore, the continuous reduction of unit costs is – and will remain – one of the fundamental tasks of the management teams of any company to ensure the necessary level of profit. MCPD through Exegens® does this.

The Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD) system was created by Dr. Alin Posteucă, founder and CEO of Exegens®, in over 20 years of practical and scientific research, and has been published in the three books so far published at Productivity Press, Routledge/ CRC, New York, USA.

What can I expect to learn?

During the Cost-Competitiveness Improvement through MCPD Transformation training program, the participants will:

  • understand the principles, phases, steps, essential tools of MCPD development to ensure Cost Improvement;

  • will deeply understand what needs to be changed in the organization to meet Annual and Multiannual Targets Profit by Cost Improvement using MCPD;

  • create a unique and innovative way of working to reduce and eliminate Cost of Losses and Waste (CLW).

What will this program do for me?

This program will help participants to:

  • understand the necessary thinking to achieve Cost Improvement Targets;

  • assess the level of Cost of Losses and Waste (CLW) from company;

  • understand how to develop Improvement Budgets to support Cost Improvement;

  • learn how to set and run the annual strategic Kaizen și Kaikaku projects for Cost Improvement and continuously involve all people;

  • assess the opportunities for changing the current way of working for meeting the annual and multiannual cost reduction targets;

  • clarify the role of each and every man in the company and beyond to support the Cost Improvement culture at the level of daily management;

  • develop an annual and multi-annual action plan for Cost Improvement and to continually assess the required performance level.

How is this Cost-Competitiveness Improvement training program structured?

1) Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD) Concept

2) Develop your Productivity Business Model (PBM) and Start to Live It: Goals and Framework

3) Profitability and Productivity Scenarios as the Pursuit of Productivity Vision

4) Organizational simulation: Pro-Cost Improvement Revolution, Round 1.
Participants will analyze un example of Annual Transformation Example through MCPD System (Manufacturing Cost Improvement - MCI with at Least 6% per Year for a Product Family Cost - PFC) and will develop their own understanding of the MCPD implementation in their organization;

5) Debrief and reflection.

After Day 1, a meeting of participants will take place from 18:00 until 19:00 for networking.

6) Phase 1: Manufacturing Cost Policy Analysis:
• Step 1: Context and Purpose of MCI

7) Phase 1: Manufacturing Cost Policy Analysis:
• Step 2: Annual MCI Targets and Means

8) Phase 2: Manufacturing Cost Policy Development:
• Step 3: Annual Budgets for MCI

9) Phase 2: Manufacturing Cost Policy Development:
• Step 4: Action Plan for MCI

10) Debrief and reflection.

11) Phase 3: Manufacturing Cost Policy Management:
• Step 5: Engage the Workforce for MCI

12) Phase 3: Manufacturing Cost Policy Management:
• Step 6: MCI Performance Management

13) Phase 3: Manufacturing Cost Policy Management:
• Step 7: Daily MCI Management

14) Organizational simulation: Pro-Cost Improvement Revolution, Round 2.
Participants will analyze Profitable Improvement Projects Implementation through MCPD for MCI toward Maximizing Outputs (with real Kaizen and Kaikaku for MCI) and will develop their own understanding of MCPD implementation in their organization.

15) Organizational simulation: Pro-Cost Improvement Revolution, Round 3.
Participants will analyze Profitable Improvement Projects Implementation through MCPD for MCI toward Minimizing Inputs (with real Kaizen and Kaikaku for MCI) and will develop their own understanding of MCPD implementation in their organization.
