What we do

Improvement of productivity

A typical Vocum project increases productivity by 25%

Productivity = Production throughput / Resource input

A typical Vocum project increases productivity by 25%

This means either :

  • 25 % MORE production throughput given the same resource input
  • the same production throughput with 20% LESS resource input
  • a combination of both

Improvement of machine effectiveness

Increase of the output of bottleneck machines.

We help you systematically question and improve uptime, machine speed and quality.

In many production environments, machines are used that deliver as much qualitative output per unit of time as possible. Only the production of the operators does not apply in this case. Together with the operator and managers of production and maintenance, we will ensure that the high-quality output of the machine increases.
In order to be able to tackle the losses with the right priority and also to see to what extent the actions taken reduce the reduction, we often use the method of measuring the machine efficiency, namely OEE (Overall Effectiveness of Equipment). This KPI expresses in % the output of a machine compared to an ideal machine that never stands still, with the right movements and no rejection.
It is crucial that the operator himself makes the subdivision of the types of stoppages, that they help determine the optimum machine speed and that there is a choice of what is rejection and what is not.

Guaranteed results

Most of our clients achieve returns on investment surpassing 2,5:1

We guarantee you will achieve a one to one return on your investment

Just like you, we want the improvement to be measurable

We measure the savings achieved weekly on the basis of a commonly agreed measurement basis. The idea is that the productivity achieved on a weekly basis is compared with the productivity before the start of the project (in a comparable period). From this a difference is calculated between the number of man-hours required before the start of the project and the man-hours actually performed. This difference in man-hours is then expressed in Euro.

Guarantee

We guarantee that the annualized realized savings will at least equal your investment in our fee.

If we fail to meet this performance – we will refund or continue working at our own expense.

Expertise in various types of business sectors

Vocum helps achieving measurable results in both production and administrative environments and does so in different industries :

  • production
  • maintenance
  • logistics
  • administration
  • construction
  • catering
  • packaging

Do things first time right and keep it simple

If it ain't broke, don't fix it

During an analysis we’ll identify the bottlenecks, quantify them and find out what is causing these losses. We’ll determine which aspects of the organisation work and which don’t work. We consolidate what is working and only focus on issues that have an important impact on your profitability.

What one of our customers has to say about us

“Initially I was hesitant about Vocum’s possible improvement projections. During the analysis, it was nevertheless determined that a potential saving of 22% on direct wage costs was possible, which corresponds to €2.3 million. During the project it turned out that this was indeed possible with the end result being a strong increase in productivity. Our managers have demonstrably started to function better and also act more proactively. All this has led to the achievement of the anticipated savings.”

Filip Cordeel - Owner / CEO Cordeel Group

What one of our customers has to say about us

Daarbij ontstond er bij onze medewerkers eerst ongeloof over de haalbaarheid want in hun ogen deden we al heel erg goed ons best. Dat laatste was juist maar de wij sprongen niet goed met onze krachten om waardoor er veel zaken niet op een effectieve manier werden uitgevoerd. Door deze verbeterpunten stuk voor stuk te benoemen en daarna met een actieplan aan te pakken, hebben wij onze doelstellingen snel gerealiseerd. Door het enthousiasme en de overtuigingskracht van het Vocum team is er al snel een sfeer ontstaan dat de voorgestelde verbeteringen ook echt gerealiseerd konden worden.
