DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) has launched a new “operational excellence offering” that it says helps companies across a wide range of industries improve financial performance by increasing productivity and asset uptime, while also improving quality, human safety and environmental footprint.

“DuPont Sustainable Solutions is unique in that we are able to draw upon our company’s own experience managing more than 200 plant sites around the world,” says James Weigand, president of DSS. “That means our operational excellence solutions have been proven to improve business performance, and we can show specific examples of how we have optimized productivity, quality, yield and safety to achieve sustainable and measurable results both inside DuPont and with our growing list of external clients.”

Practice areas within the operational excellence offering include operations transformation, asset productivity, process performance, energy efficiency, integrated business excellence and supply chain, mindsets and behaviors, learning and development and process safety/environmental management.

“We are working with companies in industries like oil and gas, utilities, chemicals, food and beverage, mining and natural resources to assess and manage their operational risks and improve productivity,” says Brian Rains, global operational excellence practice leader for DSS. “We serve companies that operate an asset base that needs to be optimized without major capital investments, releasing locked value to deliver on growth objectives, or to generate a step-change in productivity.”
