Make Continuous Improvement One of Your Goals
It’s not uncommon to hear that a company is striving to be “the best.” But how many of those companies are active in achieving that goal? As they say, actions speak louder than words.
The most successful businesses are never stagnant. They aim for continuous improvement, whether it involves developing new products, adjusting recipes, finding better ingredients, or enhancing production processes.
Don’t let your company fall into a complacent stance. Get creative when considering ways your operation can improve and be proactive in looking for solutions that will make it “the best.”
How to Approach Continuous Improvement
It’s undeniable that making changes to the operations of a baking facility is a challenge. It requires quite a bit of capital, and some companies operate on thin margins as it is. But that doesn’t mean improvement isn’t achievable. It just requires strategic planning and a mindset that the long-term benefits will make the short-term changes worthwhile.
To get the best return on investment (ROI), look for solutions that increase efficiency. For example, if you’ve found that the quantity of release agent needed to produce satisfactory output is high, your operation can be improved by finding a release agent that produces the same satisfactory output with lower quantity used. Or, if release agent application isn’t precise, you can seek application technology that will minimize spoilage and waste.
Yes, continuous improvement can mean an increase in capital expense to get the changes implemented or a changing mindset in working smarter versus harder. Some companies even hire entire teams dedicated to the cause. But remember, once everything is in place, the savings will follow, and you’ll begin to see a return on your investment.
