Transforming Industrial Operations Challenges into Success Stories

In today’s fast-paced business landscape, industrial operations projects often face complex challenges that can lead to costly failures.

In today’s fast-paced business landscape, industrial operations projects often face complex challenges that can lead to costly failures. According to the Standish Group, 65% of projects encounter significant difficulties, ranging from missed deadlines to budget overruns. 

Understanding the Challenges

At RESAB Engineering, we recognize the critical need to address these challenges to achieve better outcomes. Drawing from extensive experience, we’ve identified three primary factors contributing to project failures:

Vague Scope and Management: Unclear definitions of project scope and management approaches leading to confusion and inefficiencies.

Lack of Performance Tracking: Failing to monitor performance resulting in deviations from project objectives and hinder overall progress.

Absence of Planning and Methodologies: Projects often falter without structured planning and methodologies, leaving them without a clear framework for success.

In this article, we’ll explore how our value-driven problem-solving approach can help your organization to overcome these obstacles and achieve project success.

Addressing the challenges through our Value-Driven Approach

Our value-driven problem-solving method is built on LEAN principles, and particularly relevant within industrial operations. It serves as a structured framework to improve key performance indicators (KPIs) related to quality, delivery, and cost. By combining structured problem-solving techniques, data-driven insights, and effective collaboration with people.

The approach consists of 5 steps: 

1. Preparation: Understanding the Situation

The problem-solving journey begins with preparation, focusing on gaining a deep understanding of the problem at hand. This phase includes defining the problem’s scope, understanding its historical context, assessing its impact on the organization, proposing an approach, identifying key stakeholders, and establishing a realistic timeline.The result is a comprehensive one-page project charter outlining purpose, deliverables, estimated impact, project team, milestones, and a timeline. Additionally, a tactical implementation plan including resources and timeline.

2. Analysis: Digging Deeper

With a well-defined problem statement, the process moves to the analysis phase. In this phase, a comprehensive perspective is sought to uncover hidden root causes.Outcomes include an issue tree with quantified problems, root causes with quantified impacts, and actionable recommendations for solutions.

3. Solution Design: Planning for the Future

After identifying root causes, the focus shifts to solution design, refining the top three solutions to maximize their estimated impact while ensuring seamless alignment with existing processes.This phase produces a conceptual solution design, a project charter for each solution, and a tactical implementation plan specifying time and resource requirements.

4. Implementation: Putting Plans into Action

The planning phase is just the beginning. During implementation, collaboration with clients and their teams is essential to bring solutions to life, ensuring smooth integration into existing operations. This collaboration not only ensures successful implementation but also fosters competence development within the clients’ team. As implementation progresses, benefit realization begins, with positive impacts becoming tangible.

5. Validation: Measuring Success

The commitment to delivering value extends beyond implementation. In the validation phase, concrete data and metrics are employed to assess whether solutions have achieved the desired impact. Outcomes include confirmation of solution design and impacts, the possibility of adjustments, and invaluable learnings for future projects.
