EFQM, Knowledge and Asset Management Source: EFQM (2010)
Criterion 4: Partnerships & Resources 4c Buildings, equipment, materials and natural resources are managed in a sustainable way 4e Information and knowledge are managed to support effective decision making and to build the organisation’s capability (EFQM, 2010)
WAVERIDERS current situation No formal knowledge management process for leveraging knowledge No policy/strategy for managing buildings No physical security for the assets No maintenance database and plan Dyes are harmful for the environment and the health of the workers Fibreglass used in the manufacturing No health or safety measures regarding it No emergency plan
WAVERIDERS current situation Excessive inventories Controlling pollution strategy Reactive maintenance No strategy for life cycle management No IT department Suppliers not eco-friendly Boat engine modification for fuel Packaging of accessories and manual not in eco- friendly plastic bags
4-LEVEL LEARNING IN ORGANIZATIONS Source: adapted from Sun & Scott (2005) Individual Level Team Level Organizational Level Inter- organizational Level
WAVERIDERS’ current situation in terms of KM Generating knowledge Generation of knowledge to a certain extent (but no storing) Storing knowledge No conditions for knowledge management system (formally) Disseminating knowledge Barriers on dissemination of knowledge among departments Censorship - limitation of information sharing Applying knowledge Repeating mistakes - no lessons learned especially in NPD
Nonaka’s Knowledge Creation Spiral Model Source: Frost (2010) Socialization: Leadership create circumstances for KM (open and free environment) Regular meetings Abolish reward practices Weekly workshops for interaction Externalization & Combination: Database (document experiences, knowledge from NPD, problems and lessons learned) Intranet Subscriptions to journals and websites Internalization: Application of knowledge Embed it in everyday routines
ASSET MANAGEMENT Facilities Management – Action plan Year 1: Hire Facility Manager and create a facility management plan (annual and long-term) Create an IT department Outsource not core competencies activities (e.g. cleaning, mailing, data backup) Space management: Ergonomic interior design and health and safety issues concerning the raw materials (fibreglass) Create an emergency plan
ASSET MANAGEMENT Facilities Management – Action plan (cont.) Year 2: Review current property portfolio and perform real estate management (e.g. Exmouth potential options) Utilization of Information system and Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) Year 3: Consider future actions on Design & Build activities Reconsider long-term facility planning
Physical security Action steps Action steps to implement physical security in the WaveRiders: 1. Fencing along the walls of the company and no unauthorized entrance until confirmed by any manager inside. 2.Putting up CCTV cameras in all the rooms and the production area for the safety and keeping a check, also in the parking space. 3. Access cards to workers, allowing them access only to places they belong. 4.Increase the lighting in barren parts of the buildings 5.Increasing patrolling by security officers especially at night. 6.Putting up alarms in case necessary that will notify the nearest police station. 7.Security personnel having control of the main gate. Can keep it locked/unlocked according to their will. Automatic access. 8.Having Fire protective mechanism in the company.
Virtual security Action steps Scope: strong network security Zero-Knowledge Protocol About the passwords: Hard to guess Changed every couple of months People should also avoid disclosing their passwords Outsourcing data backup Contract with service provider Create IT policy and provide training
ASSET MANAGEMENT Health & Safety Step 1: the company writes Health & Safety (H&S) policy Step 2: the company does risk assessment (identify risks that might cause harm to people) Step 3: provide training and information about health & safety to ensure that employees know how to work safely and without risks to health Step 4: provide welfare facilities to ensure employees well-being Step 5: make arrangements for first aid, accidents and ill health
ASSET MANAGEMENT Environmental Management Cleaner production system – way of thinking Hierarchy of waste reduction Integrated approach to design, manufacture and use of products Product Modification and new product design Beyond your organisation itself – concerns suppliers and customers as well Third party audit (ISO 14001) CSR policy
ASSET MANAGEMENT Environmental Management - Action Restructuring of the products’ engine (fuel: butanol instead of ethanol )(Bevill, 2012). Notify suppliers of raw materials Search for eco-friendly suppliers Recycle raw materials Change packaging material to eco-friendly Change dyes Offer eco-friendly accessories and cleaning products Environmental considerations about future products
ASSET MANAGEMENT Life-Cycle Management Year 2: Evaluation of the current assets of the company to ascertain the conditions Document the lifespan of all existing assets based on evaluation data Implement a framework to monitor lifespan and quality of assets Year 3: Integration of product requirements from customers’ into our system to ensure customer satisfaction. Commitment to continual improvement of all processes through regular assessment and appraisals Database that covers all assets location, performance and lifespan shall be established
ASSET MANAGEMENT Maintenance Poor machine performance Leads to low profit, loss of production, etc. Maintenance is important so that: Get reliable and effective plants Gain a competitive advantage Increase the profitability of WaveRiders Implementation of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) plan
ASSET MANAGEMENT Maintenance – Action steps Year 1: Define and Create a database Collection of data, timing and recording Year 2: Measure & Analyze the situation Training program Measurement of overall equipment Effectiveness (OEE) Year 3: Improve & Control Methods for minimizing time loss Focus on the improvements that can be achieved Application of maintenance policies, replacement Continuous Improvement and Continuous Training
Material Requirements Planning MRP focus on: -Bill of Requirements -Master Production Schedule -Opening Inventory -Opening Capacity -Safety Stock
ASSET MANAGEMENT Resource Utilization (cont.) Implement and master the plan within 3 years It is believed that will increase inventory turnover by 40%, if it is implemented sucessfully Once, knowledge management becomes a way of life, then the company can proceed into MRP II.
Conclusion Limitations It is suggested that if WaveRiders follow the suggestions and implement the plan they can significantly improve their approaches toward knowledge and asset management and comply with EFQM. However, certain limitations has to be taken into consideration: Financial aspects Finance Director has to supervise the entire process Soft aspects – people resistance to changes Stakeholder analysis All directors be in touch with their teams
