WCOM, or World Class Operations Management, is a management philosophy focussed on improving process within the organisation so that we become truly “World Class”.
It is the philosophy of being the best, the fastest, and the lowest cost producer as measured by our customers and industry experts.
WCOM is part of Somerton’s Operational Strategy, and is driven by a culture where losses (anything that adds cost but not value) are systematically identified and reduced or eliminated.
By default, it implies the constant improvement of products, processes and services so that we remain the industry leader and provide the best choice for customers.
It requires the Somerton manufacturing facility to systematically and constantly measure, review and improve our activities across all areas - including Health & Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy.
The first stage of the process, gathering, presenting and analysing production data is well underway. There are a number of new information boards around the Somerton site and presenting and reviewing data now forms the basis of our shop-floor meetings and discussions.
