KPIs provide feedback on the current state or condition of a given metric. Engineering is taking something and making it better; Engineering Departments should operate with the same ethos. The only way to ensure improvements are happening is to know what it was and what it now is, this is where Engineering KPIs come into their own.
This course targets not just the performance of Engineers, but, more importantly the performance of the Engineering Process(s). The course is ideally suited to Senior Engineers and Engineering Managers who want to increase the value of their team.
An engineering Key Performance Indicator (KPI) or metric is a clearly defined quantifiable measure that an engineering firm uses to gauge its success over time. With engineering being a very broad field, KPIs are employed in a variety of ways, ranging from company-wide analysis to project specific performance metrics.
The course is broken down into three 1-hour Webinar sessions, an overview follows:

“I am currently on my first run of ladder in management in the manufacturing industry, I found the root cause analysis session a great tool to have learnt, the learning was delivered in a confident approach, and the content was well thought out and structured and no question was overlooked, not only did I get an insight into problem solving, but a lesson in how to deliver in a confident and professional approach without being too ambiguous."
“Tunley Engineering has delivered a thorough review of our Engineering process and performance in a very short period of time with the key steps identified that we need to take in order to move our team to the next level. Our Engineering function is critical to ensuring we deliver what our customer needs, on time and to the highest standards – our work with Tunley Engineering is part of our continuous improvement strategy for this area of our business.”
“Tunley Engineering is a great way to sharpen any engineering team, whether they are part of a massive corporate structure or a smaller team. Their method of instruction strays far from the dry methods of old, in which you are simply spoken to and not engaged. With Tunley Engineering, the teaching process is much more interactive with lessons being structured more like workshops than university-style classrooms."
"We hired Tunley to help debug our engineering processes and to improve delivery time for our custom engineered systems. William Beer took the time to do a thorough survey of our existing engineering activities and was able to quickly understand the nature of our processes. He recommended changes that were easy to implement and which gave us immediate positive results."
