CI-facilitators from a number of food companies meet regularly at ARV Group’s invitation, to share their knowledge and experiences in the field of Change Management and Continuous Improvement. On Thursday, March 8, 2018, the members of this CI-Community applied themselves to the question: “How and when does one apply interactive working formats in the course of change processes?” Here you can read about how they inspired each other in their exploration of this fascinating and challenging theme.
Operations and private equity: from prejudice to nuance and shared interests
What changes are in store for operations when a private equity party takes over the organization? Individuals from both sides talked about this during one of ARV Group's Experience Workshops. In his blog, Roelant van Herwaarden looks back on a successful workshop, during which prejudices made way for nuance and mutual understanding: investor, owner or manager, the interests are virtually always the same.
Smart MES is the basis for better performance and continuous improvement
A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) usually serves only as the bridge between planning (the ERP system) and process-control. Even though an MES can also act as the sole, “pure” information platform. Companies that see to the careful and well-thought-out development and implementation of their MES, Frank Bekkers says, are therefore laying the foundation for better performance and continuous improvement. Read about it in his blog.
ARV experience workshops
The implementation of an MES is a timely theme in many operations environments: what is essential for an effective implementation and application, and how do we go about organizing that?
Interim meetings at ARV Group
On a quarterly basis, our interim managers meet to share their knowledge and practical experiences. During these "interim meetings", they discuss timely issues impacting the process industry.
Direct personnel planning every bit as important as OEE
The goal of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is to achieve optimal productivity on a production line. But aren’t we focusing too exclusively on the process, the technology and the machines alone? Erik Haks (Associate Partner ARV Group) is convinced that productivity and quality will receive a much bigger boost when direct personnel planning is applied. Read his blog about establishing systematic planning for in-house personnel and flexi-workers and their capabilities. Allotting enough capacity to production lines. And mobilizing and developing all of the required know-how and skills.
The hidden power of usefulness, necessity and pleasure
Martijn Cazemier is convinced of it: entrepreneurial targets and personal ambitions reinforce each other when a sense of usefulness is the common drive. Because both companies and individuals want to do things that make a difference. His premise is that as long as change, improvement and growth are worth doing, everyone will feel like making them happen. And, with that, the door is open to success, growth and satisfied customers. Read his blog about the hidden power of usefulness, necessity and pleasure.

Consultancy across borders
Want to get the shop floor involved in programs for change and improvement? Outside the Netherlands, the bottom-up approach is not always the gospel truth. In his blog, Edgar Scheffrahn shares years of practical experience in working abroad. As a consultant, studying the culture and establishing relationships in the right way is the key to success abroad.
A sense of urgency as fertile ground for improvement and results
How can the foodstuffs and food-processing industry go about reaping what they sow? Read about it in the blog by Jan Donkers, Associate Partner at ARV Group.

Working together with Ontwikkelingspartners
Occasionally, our contacts ask us about the cooperative ties between ARV Group and Ontwikkelingspartners. What reason is there for the two to work together? And what are the fields of expertise that go with each organization?

In today’s world, data is sacred. That goes for the food-processing industry as well. From data we can obtain a great deal of information that proves useful in making plans for improvement
