Bright Site Programme
To further optimize their operations worldwide, Sibelco has introduced the Bright Site Programme (BSP). Through this programme, they are training their operations teams in a new, lean way of working. It encourages local teams to generate ideas which are helping to improve overall efficiency. Those ideas have led to improvements in service for their customers, as well as savings in operating costs.
For the Bright Site Project at their Maastricht Site, Sibelco asked PDM to support them in optimizing their operations. The ambition was to save 7-8% in operation costs, focusing mainly on site productivity, energy, and maintenance. We gladly accepted the challenge!
Working towards LEAN
Two of our change experts supported the local team in reaching the project goals. They helped the team with:
- Identifying improvement potential for each work stream
- Identifying and implementing several quick wins
- Implementing several tools to improve the way of working in daily operations
- Capability training for the site management team in using LEAN management techniques
Because of their approach, our change experts and the local team were able to achieve an overall cost reduction of 7-8%. Those are great results!
Creating an impact
During this project, we were able to provide Sibelco Maastricht with a custom made solution to help them achieve their goals. By combining our expertise with teamwork, we have been able to achieve great results. And that’s exactly how we were able to create an impact!
