A collaborative assessment
for a single-site operation
Build an effective manufacturing operation.
Spearhead is a coordinated onsite assessment of a manufacturing operation that provides reports and analyses via a dynamic dashboard. The process involves people whose opinions are valued in either setting business aspirations or determining the current state. It is a collective approach to building a strategy aimed at operational, cultural and financial improvement.
Questionnaires are assigned to selected people to establish the strategic aspirations and current state of manufacturing. Financial data is captured to calculate the potential gross margin improvement for achieving aspirational goals. The process is coordinated via the Spearhead dashboard and once complete, reports are generated to display, analyse and download.
The questionnaire focuses on seven components that influence operational and financial performance. These components are divided into six sub-components, each with five levels of grading. For each sub-component, an assignee contributes by either setting an aspiration level, a current state or both. The assignments are consolidated via the site dashboard to achieve a collective result.
The dashboard manages the completion of the assessment and when finished, enables quick access to analytics and reports.
This is a summary of the results of the assessment process. It shows an overview of the strengths and weaknesses by component plus the potential for operational and financial improvement.
The questionnaire identifies the gap between the gap between strategic aspirations and the current state of the operation. The financial data Net sales + Cost of Sales (CoS) are used to establish a current gross margin. The improvement expectation is combined with the assessment result to produce a gross margin improvement forecast.
This is a high-level report focusing on the overall assessment result. It highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the operation and the financial benefits for improvement.
The detailed report examines the strengths and weaknesses overall and for each individual component. It shows the financial benefits of achieving sub-component aspirational goals and provides an action plan to achieve them.
