The Business Excellence program initiated by Gekko Systems
aims for the holistic improvement of the business in all key result areas.
This program has been undertaken by the company to further improve assistance with the efficient delivery of equipment and services to customers.
Gekko Systems is at the midpoint of the program, having implemented visual mini business boards to engage the teams in measuring safety, quality, delivery and cost relating to their activities. Targets are set and corrective actions are implemented to improve team performance.
Each team’s mini business board is supported by the Gekko Leadership Group, which visits fortnightly to discuss the progress and achievements, and assist with resolving actions outside the team’s scope of control. This system provides an excellent cross function communication forum with all employees having the opportunity to attend this process on a rotational basis.
The workplace organisation phase is also underway with improvements in physical workflow and documentation, warehousing and equipment storage, as well as visual management.
This will be followed by practical problem-solving in the third phase with teams creating continuous improvement action lists and then applying specific lean tools to resolve the identified problems.
All teams have made significant progress in Gekko Systems’ Business Excellence program.
Gekko Systems specialises in the design, development and distribution of innovative mineral processing equipment and systems with particular focus on gravity separation.
