Use data to remove process waste

The goal of lean process improvement is to transform a process and ultimately the organization which strives to maximize customer value with streamlined processes.

But do you have a visibility of what you actually need to LEAN? It is challenging to get facts to form a solid understanding of the processes and recognize which changes have the biggest impact. Quick identification of development areas, reacting fast and learning fast are key for making the needed big improvements to operational performance.

QPR provides tools and solutions to identify improvement needs based on facts and to streamline processes. You can use data as a basis for waste identification, and make needed process changes aligned with the overall business architecture. Data will also help you establish a follow-up system to provide visibility on how the made changes impact process performance.

Customer Stories

"Process mining and QPR ProcessAnalyzer basically help you to highlight process inefficiencies. If you have a target to reduce cycle time, to improve your process, or to harmonize and standardize your process. You can leverage this tool to exactly focus in those directions.

The influence analysis is one of my favorites. It allows you to do a root cause analysis on what happened, why it happened, and QPR ProcessAnalyzer is able to showcase that to you. Then, you can build the story on how what kind of improvements can be done in the company based on that finding." 

- Fauzia Khan, Business Process Manager, Nokia

"We can replace opinions with facts and it is easier for people to accept changes when you can justify them with the facts. It's also easier to focus on those areas where the development is most needed. For example, you get away from sending emails with overreaching instructions how people should do certain things. But with QPR ProcessAnalyzer, you can now identify the area where the improvement is needed, and then perhaps just talk to two or three people and get the change done. It's easy to focus on things mentally.

- Matti Ketonen, VP Supply Chain, Metsä Board
