Faster to the top: Critical Process Questions

Kinetics has walked the halls, clean rooms, and production floors of semiconductor companies around the world. As a noted supplier of systems support to R&D and manufacturing teams, the specialists at Kinetics continue to field thousands of questions a year — including some pointed, problem-solving ones. Among them are these five that warrant serious attention.

  1. What is your mission? While this sounds like a pure metrics query, there’s more to this prompt than the obvious. Whether consulted about a single line, sub-system, full system or entire facility, Kinetics is quick to look beyond the urgent to the important. Centrally, what is the enterprise out to accomplish?
  2. Where are you seeking research or production advantages? Sometimes, the answer focuses on chemistry. Other times, its materials handling. Perhaps operating or labor costs are a competitive factor. While the mission question addresses the end result, the advantages question elicits specific strategies to be considered or implemented as part of a roadmap to success.
  3. Where is parity sufficient? The belief that every stage and step should be a “winner” can often be a matter of pride or pressure from leadership. Sometimes “good enough” is sufficient, particularly when the cost of “great” outstrips the economic return.
  4. What performance barriers must be anticipated? Are market requirements unstable, in flux or more predictable? Will materials or components be subject to fundamental transformations in formulation, handling or application? What localized variables must be eliminated, contained or accounted for in every process?
  5. Is there a wise migration path to a better future? Few ventures are a matter of all or nothing. Most function by degrees in balancing bold moves (including investments) against a logical progression of more modest steps.

Even in the case of modest client purchases, these sensibilities are part of the Kinetics culture. For technologists, engineers, and process managers, asking these five questions daily may prove to be effective. To learn more, simply click HERE.
