DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) has launched a new operational excellence offering for application across a wide range of industries. The aim of operational excellence is to help companies improve financial performance by increasing productivity and asset uptime, while also improving quality, human safety and environmental footprint.
James Weigand, President of DuPont Sustainable Solution, commented: “DuPont Sustainable Solutions is unique in that we are able to draw upon our company’s own experience managing more than 200 plant sites around the world. That means our operational excellence solutions have been proven to improve business performance, and we can show specific examples of how we have optimized productivity, quality, yield and safety to achieve sustainable and measurable results both inside DuPont and with our growing list of external clients”.
CEOs regularly cite operational excellence as one of the most important issue that they face. They say that several external factors are pressuring companies to improve operational performance. Among them are global competition, public accountability, investor expectations and rising plant demands. DSS aims to help companies address these issues so they can improve customer satisfaction, increase production efficiency and capacity, create value and reduce costs.
Brian Rains, global operational excellence manager, said: “We are working with companies in industries like oil and gas, utilities, chemicals, food and beverage, mining and natural resources to assess and manage their operational risks and improve productivity”.
“We serve companies that operate an asset base that needs to be optimized without major capital investments, releasing locked value to deliver on growth objectives, or to generate a step change in productivity”, he added.
Practice areas within the operational excellence offering include operations transformation, asset productivity, process performance, energy efficiency, integrated business excellence and supply chain, mindsets and behaviors, learning and development and process safety/environmental management.
