    Why do organisations need to continually improve?

    Implementing good Governance, Risk, Compliance and ISO Standards as a once-off activity will no doubt lead to stagnation in this rapid-paced business environment. Clause 10.2, of most ISO Standards, sets continual improvement as a mandatory requirement. Thus providing a framework for deeply-rooted practical, consistent, and sustainable improvement through all levels of your organisation. This culture is supported by various ISO Management System documentation. Once certified to a Standard, Legal or Governance Framework, or similar, the External Auditors will return the following year and ask the key question. How have you as an organisation improved?

    This improvement can be linked to your objectives, risk status, integration of new legislations, or being able to embed the system and its controls into the culture of your organisation. These challenges are never-ending and can quickly spiral out of control.

    The solution? Continual improvement. WWISE provides a Maintenance Plan for organisations that are ISO certified by enhancing organisational processes with various Industrial Engineering toolsets. These toolsets range from Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, Theory of Constraints, work and method studies, team building, productivity studies, and culture and change management. The function of this activity is to improve your processes and workflow. Thereafter objectives are linked using strategic tools – this will assist in improving the organisations’ performance, with a key focus on efficiency and productivity. We utilise a unique blend of social engineering, linked to behaviour and cultural change, associated with the organisations’ mandate to achieve our results. At WWISE we provide the turnkey solution to transform challenges into success stories – with years of experience to back our words.

    The issue faced most often after implementation and certification is knowing how to continually improve. Here are a few of the many solutions that WWISE assists with.

    Business Process Modelling

    What is Business Process Modelling?

    Businesses rarely function at optimal efficiency. This is generally due to miscommunication, redundancies, or wasteful processes. To ensure that your company is operating at its peak, optimally functioning work processes must be established. Therefore, business process modelling is the best way to identify inefficiencies and in turn help develop a strategy to maximise your company’s operations.

    How does it work?

    Our Consultants have worked with clients in all industries, and across the globe, in creating a personalised structure of processes that will ultimately exceed requirements and expectations..

    Your current processes will be analysed and assessed to be improved and automated in a structured and documented manner.

    Our Business Process Models govern the flow of work and increase efficiency in your organisation to support its core processes.

    What are the benefits?

    • Our customised Process Flows significantly increase the efficiency of an operational function, which in turn will increase the quality of work.
    • Reduced errors will decrease operational costs and expenses.
    • Our Consultants work very closely with your organisation to effectively deliver implementation support that is aligned with your business strategy.
    • We improve the overall business architecture to optimise workflow and business practices.

    Data Analysis

    Data Analysis

    What is Data Analysis and Analytics?
    Data analytics is the management of data which consists of data collection and data inspection. Data analytics main focus on the future and can be utilised for demand predictions based on previous data.

    Data analysis is a sub-component of data analytics, where data is investigated, transformed, and sorted into specific sets to study and extract useful information.

    Why do you need it?
    As work environments are becoming increasingly dependent on technology, the necessity of data analysis and analytics will continue to grow exponentially. Data analysis allows organisations to make informed decisions in order to improve business efficiency.
    What are the benefits?
    • Make faster, more informed decisions for your business based on gathered data.
    • Gain a better understanding of customer requirements, which can lead to improved customer relations.
    • Greater awareness of business risks.
    • Ability to make predictions based on data.
    • Removes redundant data.
    How can WWISE assist you?
    WWISE can analyse your organisationʼs data to transform it into practical and improved business processes. We can also determine production rates based on predicted data, while establishing demand forecasts.

    We will assist every step of the way to ensure your organisational needs are met.


    What is LEAN?
    LEAN is a frequently used term for businesses across the globe. This concept is summarised as “delivering better quality goods or services while requiring less resources.”
    Why do you need it?
    To stay competitive, organisations must deliver quality products at reduced prices. To ensure customer satisfaction, your business must focus on quality. Therefore, it is an organisation’s duty to find a perfect balance between good quality and low prices.

    By implementing LEAN, your organisation will require less resources to produce products, which will in turn decrease product prices. This is achieved while ensuring product quality is still prioritised to keep your customers satisfied.

    How do you implement it?
    What are the benefits?
    • Improved productivity.
    • Lead time reduction.
    • Increasing the efficiency of your current business processes.
    • Waste reduction.
    • Improved process management.
    How can WWISE assist you?

    Facilities Planning

    Facility Planning

    What is Facility Planning and Optimisation?
    The physical layout of the work environment is one of the most important aspects of any organisation. The layout defines how an organisation’s operations should run. Therefore, it impacts the performance of any process. The purpose of optimising and planning a facility layout will ensure that the facility runs at optimal efficiency.
    Why do you need it?
    By taking the facility plan into account, you can ensure that your organisation operates at optimal efficiency. Facility planning and optimisation can assist in eliminating any inefficient or avoidable processes that result in undue delays.
    How do you implement it?
    What are the benefits?
    • Increased flexibility.

    WWISE will be there every step of the way to ensure that you are constantly updated throughout the process to ensure that all your needs are met.

    Six Sigma

    What is Six Sigma?
    Six Sigma is a continuous improvement methodology based on statistics and data that focus on eliminating defects in products. Six Sigma works hand-in-hand with LEAN manufacturing, as it ensures that waste is eliminated by reducing the quantity of defective products.
    Why do you need it?
    Six Sigma is a feasible solution for organisations seeking to reduce defective products and enhance overall output quality. This methodology identifies problematic areas in production lines. Once these problem areas are eliminated, it will assist in increasing the overall activity productivity and product quality.
    How do you implement it?
    What are the benefits?
    • Standardisation.
    • Improved business processes.
    • Product quality improvements.
    • Operational costs reduction.
    • Improved efficiency.
    • Improved customer service.
    How can WWISE assist you?
    WWISE can assist by assigning project teams and managers within your organisation. We can guide you through the process to design a specialised project plan to implement the DMAIC method. WWISE strives to ensure that your organisation’s needs and requirements are met throughout the entire step-by-step process.
