Spectrum > Effective and Efficient Decision-making

Effective and Efficient Decision-making

Spectrum supports effective and efficient decision-making in operations (e.g. load balancing), purchasing (e.g. “pay for performance” contracts) and HR (e.g. time management), through reporting, work flow tools, historical data and trend analysis. The information allows management and operators to optimize resources, increase through-put, facilitate continuous improvement, saving time and cost.

In a manufacturing environment, Spectrum allows organizations to maximize the optimization of resources, helping them navigate the work load of resources on a daily basis, helping them in every manufacturing stage so as to allocate their resources at the right time and in the right place. Spectrum has functionality focused on identifying and reducing waste and inefficiency, by devising or improving the existing functioning of the manufacturing process, using analytical methods, reporting and information management.

In laboratories, two of the major challenges are time management and workload balance, where analysts spend half of their time working on analytical testing, and the other half spent on reporting and procedure management across a variety functional areas. In the typical scientific laboratory there is a large amount of data that must be tracked and analyzed, processing possibly thousands of samples per week. As a result, laboratories are continuously striving to automate processes, to reduce cost, remove manual errors, and to efficiently use their valuable physical and human resources. Spectrum has in-built tools to manage resources, balance workloads, and improve utilization.

Supplier Performance Management is a business practice that is used to measure, analyze, and manage the performance of suppliers’ products and activities in an effort to cut costs, alleviate risks, and drive continuous improvement. Potential quality and cost issues and their root causes are identified so that they can be resolved to everyone’s benefit as early as possible. Successful supplier performance management is a continuous cycle of supply and capability assessment, performance monitoring, and improvement identification, and employs analytical techniques to identify defect patterns and unpredictability, to eliminate root causes and to identify new opportunities to remove cost from the supply chain. With Spectrum, companies can define, measure, and enhance supplier performance to meet their business goals. While it cannot completely eliminate supplier-based risk, Spectrum can minimize it by identifying and collaborating with suppliers to remove inefficiencies, introduce improvements, and proactively address potential trouble spots.

Client case studies:

  • One client, operating 3 labs before implementing Spectrum, was able to consolidate activities into 1 lab through the resource monitoring and automation benefits of Spectrum.
  • A second client used the reporting facilities of Spectrum to demonstrate to regulators their efficient use of inputs (gas in particular), which resulted in approval to build a new $1billion plant.
