THE OUTLIERS WAY
The Outliers Way describes the values and fundamentals that are the foundation of our unique culture. It explains how we relate to our customers, as well as to each other. It’s who we are and it’s what drives our extraordinary success.
In 2016 Outliers initiated a work scope with Ferrexpo to improve the productivity and efficiency of load and haul fleet at Poltava and Yerestovo mines. This scope included the deployment of the Outliers Performance Management tools such as the Short Interval Control tool and the rehabilitation and effective use of the Wenco Fleet Management System to deliver improved truck allocation.
Our clients will tell us they know they should be hot-seating; they know that there is an opportunity, but it hasn’t been implemented.
Of course, it would be ideal to have a true hot-seat, one where trucks roll up to an elevated platform, one operator walks off, the other walks on, and the truck cycle is barely interrupted. A hot-seat shift-change process like that can virtually eliminate production losses during shift-change.
Managing a warehouse requires addressing some principles that we often see ignored or only loosely followed. Managed properly, a warehouse can be a major contributor to effective asset management and mine site operation.
