How do your operational processes compare against the world’s best practice companies?

What are the areas for improvement in your company?


Fourier has developed a manufacturing specific benchmarking framework based on the Operations Excellence Model and manufacturing specific best practices including:

  • Lean manufacturing principles;

  • Supply Chain Operations Reference Model (SCOR);

  • Capability Maturity Model (CCMI);

  • APQC Framework;


The online benchmark platform enables automated data capturing and comparison with international best practice companies. Our benchmarking scope is not only limited to manufacturing but also extends to other industries.


The FE manufacturing benchmark framework analyses the operations in terms of processes and operational performance and identifies the drivers which would enable a company to improve. It analyses all levels of the organisation over the elements of finance, product , production, people, layout and business strategy. The outcome will compare industry ratios such as OEE, TEEP, financial value vs. employee, lead time on products etc. so that a company can realise its status quo relating to operational performance.  The benchmark will identify and quantify gaps in key business processes so that a company can make informed operational, tactical and strategic decisions.
