A large contributor to not meeting those targets is the amount of Account Receivable that are past due. As a global organization the past due amount has ranged from USD 35.2 million to 54.6 million. The company does not have a global risk profile when extending credit to customers or a standard decision process that each location follows. How Is The Need For This Kaizen Tied To A VSM? How Is the VSM Tied To SDP and an AIP, TTI's, or KPI's? In order to reduce the amount of Past Due AR, we must understand and standardize the approaches we take to customer credit risk as a global organization. A reduction in Past Due AR will improve OWC. Kaizen Objectives (Related To VSM, SD, AIP, TTI's, Or KPI's) The objective would be to review current credit policies and potentially create standardized policy/template approach that can be utilized globally. Standard processes can be used in determining how we grant and review customer credit lines to prevent the potential for past due receivables. The focus will be on how we determine when and amount of credit to extend to customers and the tools used in the process to make a quality decision.

Key Kaizen Breakthrough Identified IssueProcess Change in Kaizen Lack of a standard method globally to evaluate data. A standard checklist for data evaluation was established. Differing approval levels and personnel existed globally. Standardized our approach to approval globally. We lacked a standard tool to evaluate customer credit risk. Leveraged the EMEA tool, and put it into the global process.

Lessons Learned Wilma’s Law: The warmer the climate, the higher the Days Sales Outstanding. We have much better understanding and agreement among our three divisions. I learned about the tools and processes that we can leverage. We accomplished far more than I dreamed possible. We learned that we were similar in our approaches.
