http://ift.tt/1dH0rtS This Key Performance Indicator (KPI) will not be found on your P&L, is not something your financial accountant has provided and you’re probably NOT utilizing it now – so read on to discover this KPI that can help you to increase your profits! These are the same KPIs we use in Velocity Scheduling System (VSS) – http://ift.tt/15nqGkG This is the first of a series of infographics displaying the KPI’s we use in VSS. What is it? This KPI is Throughput vs Operating Expense (T vs OE). In Dr Goldratt’s, The Goal, we were reminded, that the goal of any for profit organization was to make money. After working with Goldratt, I developed this key performance indicator – T vs OE.

The Velocity Scheduling System Blog for job shop scheduling and machine shop scheduling has moved to: http://www.velocityschedulingsystem.com/blog/

Contour Tool did not think it was possible to improve their scheduling  to substancially improve due date performance or ship more with fewer people, but they did just that and more with the Velocity Scheduling System. 

Read their full success story and check out their results, here:  http://www.velocityschedulingsystem.com/On_Time_Shops/Contour-Tool-VSS-success-story.pdf

This is not your typical drum buffer rope or Theory of Constraints success story.  Contour is a highly custom machine shop with lots of chaos, ever changing customer needs, a moving constraint and in short, an environment where job shop scheduling is tough.

What VSS clients are saying …

“Lisa, Thanks for all of your help throughout the years. Your recommendations have helped us reduce our turnaround time by at least 50%! I hope you and your future clients have the same successes we have had. To all of your prospects out there I would say: If you have a custom job shop, "Dr. Lisa" and the Theory of Constraints will help you acheive the goals that seem impossible! Thanks again!” Vern Harris

"We decreased the time it takes to get a job to get thru the job. Using the visual VSS board gives all the employees a chance to see what is going on." John Popescu (also check out John's video by clicking on the Testimonials and Case Studies at the top left of this page).
