If you are looking for a clearly defined and explained set of manufacturing KPIs, this is the guide for you. Each KPI entry includes a full description, worked example, formula and typical data sources. Many of the definitions for more complex KPIs also include advice for dealing with common problems and mistakes. The KPIs included are part of the ROKS ExpressTM KPI selection approach, so are designed to integrate perfectly with other KPIs from the series ('Essential KPIs' books, or 'Getting Started with KPIs’ - the full manual for the ROKS ExpressTM approach). The KPIs in this book have been developed by Bernie Smith, founder of Made to Measure KPIs. Bernie has over twenty years experience helping companies grow and succeed through the effective use of performance measurement and practical improvement techniques. His hands-on experience spans aerospace, banking, manufacturing, defence, e-commerce and healthcare. Prominent clients include HSBC, Airbus, Barclays and UBS.

Despre autor

Bernie coaches businesses to develop meaningful KPIs and present their management information in the clearest possible way to support good decision making. Frustrated by the random way in which performance measures are often chosen and implemented, Bernie set up Made to Measure KPIs in 2007. The goal was to develop simple, structured and repeatable ways to create KPIs that normal humans could design and use to improve businesses. Using the experience (and scars) of working with a huge variety of organisations over his consulting career, Bernie has boiled that experience down into simple, sensible and practical advice on performance measurement. His books aim to share that expertise in a down to earth and conversational style. Bernie lives in Sheffield, UK, with his wife and two children and some underused exercise equipment.

To make best use of this guide you should think about your business objectives (the outcome you want your KPIs to help you achieve), read through the KPIs on offer, select the ones relevant to your objectives then implement them. Nice and simple.

How the KPIs in this book are organised

Many aspects of your business will be similar to other businesses. These similarities are grouped into what I call the ‘traits’ of a business. The ‘traits’ of a business are things that naturally spring from the nature of your business and some physical characteristics, attributes, or features of that business. Example traits...

Customers present and waiting for service - business trait

A coffee shop deals with customers that queue for service. We know that there are certain measures you might be interested in for a business that has queues. For example: How long does a customer have to queue? How many customers got fed up with queuing and gave up?

Selling our time - business trait

Advice-based businesses, like consulting firms, sell their staff’s time. These businesses want to focus on KPIs like consultant utilisation and hourly billing rate. These measures would be pretty meaningless to a shop or manufacturing business. So, for the ‘traits’ of Sales, Efficiency
