Productivity Analysis

bar chart with numbers

Productivity Analysis is conducted to identify areas for potential productivity improvement projects based on statistical data collected during the analysis. The analysis also pinpoints areas of delays and interruptions that cause loss of productivity.

The first step in any productivity improvement initiative is to understand the current state of the operation. Productivity analysis provides baseline indicators that will also yield data which will be used to determine possible productivity improvement objectives and potential cost savings.

Reliable data obtained from the productivity analysis also makes the following outcomes feasible:

  • Determination of productivity improvement goals;
  • Immediate elimination of non-value added activities;
  • Ability to estimate potential savings based on the analysis results.

Examples of Productivity Analysis

Development of a valid assessment of the present work content, work interruptions and delays, as well as the number of minutes, hours, and percentage of time spent on each task.

From the productivity analysis study results:

  • Determine value added vs. non-value added work as well as any potential productivity improvements and/or cost reduction opportunities.
  • Provide recommendations for the most efficient way to perform the tasks.
  • Develop a valid assessment of the current operations.
  • Develop a valid assessment of the present workflow process.
  • Provide recommendations to improve utilization and productivity.
