Many of today’s best run organizations have embraced continuous business improvement principles as propagated by Lean, SixSigma and the like. At the start of optimization trajectories, the ‘as-is’ situation is mapped and measured. This provides a clear point of reference for investments in lab automation and innovation for example. Concerning the measurement part, business cases often contain many estimates. Although being educated guesses by experts, the lack of hard data is perceived as risk by many involved in investment decisions.
To help managers to deeper understand their investment needs, to strengthen their business case and supporting better investment decisions, Cushion consultancy collects these hard data with Multi Moment Analysis (MMA) from Me2Any AG. This is a data collection tool for work sampling, determining statistically the relative time distribution of daily activities as executed by workers, as for example those of laboratory personnel. Using mobile technology, MMA has made work sampling less intrusive for lab personnel than old school consultancy techniques and is cost effective for customers.
Please feel free to contacting us for conducting the work sampling for you or in case you need assistance in using MMA yourself. For more information, you can also visit the MMA website and download the MMA eBook.
