Return to Productivity & Waste

Waste E% – Resource inefficiency

  • Efficiency is a measure of how well a resource, task or process performs – how close it works to its maximum, its capacity

  • Possible reasons for wasted capacity include:

  • What if you found that one team took 10 hours to complete a task when another took only six ?

  • And what of the worker or team who are present  ‘in the office’ for long hours but add little of value in their extra hours?

  • The key is to reward only those who add more value – more volume and/ or better quality – over a set period, not merely input more
