PRODUCTIVITY STEP UP

To increase the level of productivity within firms, MPC, in collaboration with training centres and digital solution providers, has come out with a programme called “Productivity Step Up” that covers three main components: diagnostics, process analysis, and intervention.
  • Diagnostics

    Diagnostics

    Productivity assessment is introduced for companies to identify the overall company performance an readiness to adopt technology. The companies will understand their strengths, weaknesses and potential areas for improvement.

  • Process Analysis

    Process Analysis

    The second phase of the programme examines the current processes of companies. Participating companies will be guided to analyse their key processes and understand their pain points and problem statements. Furthermore, it can help the companies determine the best solution and intervention.

  • Intervention / Implementation

    Intervention / Implementation

    The third phase of the programme introduces a solution through process intervention and the use of technology within the identified indicators (cost, waste, time, capital, etc.). Companies will come out with a project report on the solution proposed, either through digitalisation (dashboard, IoT, big data, AI, etc.) or other process improvement solutions.
