Continuous Process Improvement

One Best Way work procedures are easier to follow when digital SOPs include videos and other job aids. This helps ensure everyone knows how to complete their work safely and accurately. With each individual following the same repeatable and auditable process, the ability to measure, analyze, improve and control becomes more achievable. Employees will also have room in their working memory to identify new and better ways to do things – making continuous improvement a natural part of your business with manufacturing process improvements.

Skills Management Matrix

Build, track, and mobilize team skills with tools built to help you close skills gaps across your business.

Acadia helps employees understand what skills they’ve mastered and identifies a path for skills they still need to attain. This engages employees by encouraging them to take control of their own career advancement and organically improves retention.

Managers gain visibility into employee capabilities to aid in demand planning and scheduling. They can also identify employees who can fill gaps with a bit more on the job training and learning.

Audit Trail & Accountability

In most operations, standard work compliance correlates directly to performance. When compliance expectations are met, line yield, waste management, and safety KPIs are also improved.

Managers with visibility into employee SOP compliance can identify who is performing tasks according to One Best Way processes and who might need additional training or support. By digitally tracking compliance of policies and procedures, you also create an audit trail that can help you comply with ISO standards, OSHA regulations, or FDA guidelines.

Training & Onboarding

Consistent outcomes in your manufacturing process start with your training approach. We learn better while doing. Job-embedded training programs are immediately more relevant than classroom or course-based activities. They take less time. They require less effort to pay attention.

Acadia improves training effectiveness by injecting training directly into work. Employees have easy access to the right content at the moment they are performing the task. Managers can check comprehension with quizzing and evaluations to ensure everyone gets the support they need.

Reskilling, Upskilling, and Micro Learning

There simply aren’t enough skilled workers to meet the demand for open manufacturing jobs. Unfortunately, training in many companies isn’t effective enough to upskill or reskill existing workers to close the gaps. Skills that are learned while actively performing tasks are learned more quickly and are recalled more readily in the future.

Providing checklist guided procedures with incorporated job aids helps employees learn new job requirements quickly. Quizzing and evaluations help managers see where more training is required and who is ready for more responsibility.

See how micro learning can help upskill your existing team.

Employee Knowledge Capture

If key positions at your company are retiring in record numbers, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, this creates a huge gap in core skills and knowledge. To capture tacit knowledge before it exits the business, you need an organized system.

Acadia provides a way to not just capture information but make it easy to find and convert into training content for those replacing your retirees.

Learn how you can capture knowledge before it’s gone for good.

Employee Engagement & Retention

Engaged employees are more likely to remain with the organization. One of the best ways to encourage engagement is to enable your team members to contribute their ideas for how to improve their work processes.  This approach is only viable, however, if managers act on the recommendations.

In Acadia, employees can provide feedback on content, processes, and other aspects of their work. The data is captured and organized so that managers can quickly identify new ideas and implement the ones that will have a positive impact. Continuous improvement thrives in an environment that encourages everyone to be engaged and contribute.

Learn the best way to capture feedback from your front line teams.

Acquisition Integration

Enterprises that grow through acquisition often increase the complexity of their operations as well. Over time, redundant systems, unnecessary rework, and loss of quality can inflate the cost of acquisitions. Making One Best Way processes clear, and sharing them among all employees, helps to quickly get everyone on the same page. Acadia helps to organize all processes and procedures so that you can identify the best of the shared knowledge from each entity.
