Productivity is the ratio of output to input. This measure is routinely applied to individual resources or departments within an organization. It is not always true, however, that an increase in individual or departmental "productivity" results in an increase in organizational productivity. What may occur is simply an increase in work-in-process or finished goods inventory, without a corresponding increase in shipments of sold product.

Improve your bottom line by focusing on organizational productivity - the ratio of company-wide output to input. The productivity improvement team uses a variety of methods including Lean, Constraint Management (TOC), and Simulation.  By leveraging improvement in the areas that have the highest capability to impact your company's bottom line, your company will realize a high return for the dollars invested to improve quality, cost, and/or delivery.
