“Softools enabled us to design, build and deploy an advanced web solution for our KPI reporting process and Kaizen improvement program across all manufacturing operations and distribution centers in Japan. The solution gives us the visibility and control we need to drive and share improvements across the business”. Bruce Herbert, Supply Chain Director, CCBJI
In order to maintain their position as the innovative market leader in Japan, CCBJI are committed to a program of Supply Chain & Operational Excellence based on the principles
and tools of Kaizen, where all 6,000 employees submit new ideas every month. The existing manual process relied on Excel to capture and share improvement ideas as ‘Icards’. The challenge was to deliver a system that would: enable ideas capture on mobile phones, allow teams to work offline, reduce the monthly reporting workload, and facilitate the sharing of best practices.
The CCBJI Supply Chain team chose to implement on the Softools DIY-Apps platform to:
- Enable monthly reporting of KPIs across 20 plants
- Capture Kaizen improvement ideas from 6,000 employees
- Support the quarterly awards program to recognize success
- Accelerate the sharing of Best Practices across the business
