UMMC summed up the results of the transformation program for the first half of 2021. The plan was exceeded by 25%: ten enterprises of the company jointly brought an economic effect of 6.9 billion rubles, while the expected - 5.5 billion rubles.
This result was achieved thanks to the well-coordinated work of teams at production sites, as well as additional projects that were not included in the original plan, but appeared at the initiative of business leaders. In total, the teams of enterprises where operational improvements are underway have developed and implemented about 600 initiatives aimed at increasing productivity and reducing costs.
Using the tools of the UMMC Business System - "Ideas Factory" and "Problem Solving Boards" - employees made more than 13 thousand useful suggestions that improved various work processes, and also solved more than three thousand problems that hindered effective performance of job duties.
Kuzbassrazrezugol ( branches Bachatsky, Kaltansky, Krasnobrodsky and Taldinsky), "Holding Cable Alliance" ("Electric cable" Kolchuginsky plant ")," Uralelektromed ", Gaysky GOK, Uchalinsky GOK, Sredneuralsky copper smelting plant," Bashkirskaya copper "," Siberia-Polymetals " Zinc Plant and Nova Zinc.
Employees who participated in the development and implementation of the initiatives received additional awards. As before, five percent of the achieved economic effect is returned to staff bonuses. The size of the bonus fund amounted to 397 million rubles, about 18 thousand employees were awarded.
In the second quarter, one of the most impressive initiatives in terms of economic effect - 73 million rubles - was implemented at Uralelektromed, where they managed to reduce the number of unplanned repairs. To this end, the specialists of the Department for the maintenance of fixed assets have introduced a system of economically sound planning of repairs. Now all the mechanisms, units and assemblies available at the enterprise are taken into account in a special computer program with an indication of their service life. The same program in real time allows you to track the time and volume of planned work, as well as collect data for analyzing the reliability of equipment. The initiative made it possible to reduce equipment repair costs by five percent.
Recall that the UMMC operational transformation program started at the end of 2019 and has already covered 17 production sites. In 2022, at least seven more enterprises of the company will join the program.
Over the past year, the initiatives developed as part of the UMMC transformation program brought 3.8 billion rubles of economic effect. In 2021, the expected economic effect should be more than 12 billion rubles.
- One of the goals of the corporate strategy of UMMC is to increase the company's profitability by 60% by 2025 compared to 2020. A key strategic initiative, the operational transformation program, is helping to achieve this goal. If at the first stages of the program, valuable ideas mainly came from development departments at enterprises, now more and more authors are fellow production workers. And not only managers, but also workers. This is largely facilitated by the development of the UMMC Business System, which enables each employee to improve any work process and receive additional remuneration for this, - said Jahangir Makhmudov, UMMC Transformation Director.
