Key Performance Benchmarking
Whitehopleman have been providing benchmarking services and surveys for the worldwide cement industry for more than 10 years. Cement companies from all continents and most countries of the world have availed themselves of these services. During that time a database has been established with performance statistics from more than 350 cement factories of all cement manufacturing processes and with equipment from all the world’s major equipment suppliers.
Cement companies have used this benchmarking to obtain an independent comparison of their performance across six major aspects of cement factory operation: safety, manpower productivity, energy efficiency, equipment productivity, equipment reliability and co-processing. Areas where performance can be improved have been identified and realistic improvement targets have been able to be set. A number of cement companies have demonstrated year-on-year success with these performance improvement efforts.
After 10 years of serving the international cement industry in this way Whitehopleman benchmarking services continue to evolve. Those cement companies who wish to continue having a annual benchmarking comparison across all six aspects of their cement factory operation will be able to do so. Those who wish to compare a single, a few, or any combination of these aspects will also be able to do so. These comparisons will be available at any time of the year, as and when required by the particular cement company. The Whitehopleman cement industry performance benchmarking database will continue to expand and comparisons against that database for any aspect of cement factory performance will be made available at any time.
