More than just a methodology that aids manufacturing and assembly lines, if used correctly and across a whole business, sixsigma can go much further.
Plastic injectionmolding experts NS KUNSTSTOFFTECHNIK - CZ are a prime example of how, if implemented throughout every aspect of your operations, a lean approach can benefit your customer service provision as well as the throughput of the production itself.
Co-owner and Executive Director Jeremy Svoboda summarized it perfectly when he stated: “By maximizing the productivity of our plant, and identifying and removing issues before they happen, we are automatically improving customer satisfaction”. As one of a number of black belts across the business, his take on things goes further still.
He continued “but we believe that just a knock-on effect goes nowhere near far enough; at NS-K we believe that even the interaction between us and our customers should be configured in a way that demonstrates professionalism”.
The underlying message is that dealing with customer queries, information sharing, and help requests should also be optimized in a way that ensures quality responses, comprehendible replies, and indeed the ability to speak to a real person who knows your project and who has the authority and knowledge to make decisions.
Utilizing modern software, internal process reviews, and excellent inter-team communication, the results are a slick flow of information both ways, and critically, customer service that is world-class.
The age-old view that manufacturing is a remote business where factory workers are on a product line and repute interaction has been turned on its head; now the quality of the service is as key as the quality of the end product.
