IMIG Supplier Assessments make your company fit for the future

Lean processes and management systems should inspire the sustainability and productivity of your company in the long term. IMIG supports your company in this lean transformation. The starting point of this continuous improvement is a 3-day assessment, which is specifically tailored to your needs. At the end of the assessment, an evaluation of the current performance status, the causes of the problems and an implementation plan for your company are provided.

 

The change process is initiated

Not only production is subjected to the change process, but all areas of your company! In the assessment, a comprehensive picture of process, organization and leadership is described. "We have the task to support your processes, your organization and your leadership with special knowledge in the direction of best practice" says the expert team of IMIG.

In the first step, the goal of the assessments is to provide a clear picture of the current situation of the company for the respective topic category (see Figure 1). To this end, we conduct interviews and small workshops with your employees, obtain data and compare it with best practice criteria. In addition, a simplified value stream analysis is carried out in cooperation with you, which includes the visual representation of the flow of goods and information from the supplier to your customer.

After this recording phase, we get to the bottom of the current problems and causes. These can vary greatly depending on the company and industry. Here, we conduct more in-depth interviews with the departments and persons concerned or analyze further data.

Based on the results of the as-is analysis, potential for improvement is derived and recorded in an implementation plan. We differentiate between quick wins, medium-term measures and long-term measures. At the end of the third day, we present our implementation proposal to management in a final report. This usually results in concrete implementation projects (so-called lighthouse projects), in which we are happy to provide you with active support!

Ideally, IMIG experts accompany the companies during the implementation of measures and contribute to process stabilization. We also want to support the companies with innovative ideas and systems. Currently, supplier assessments at a large OEM are running very successfully, as is the training of their employees in so-called train-the-trainer courses. In the first lighthouse projects, very good results have been achieved in terms of productivity, quality and lead times.

 

Conclusion

The IMIG Supplier Assessment is therefore much more than just an ordinary audit but it is the starting point for initiating a change process into a new corporate and leadership culture!
