We have developed a unique process for Equipment System Integration called (DIVOM™). DIVOM™ ensures the design of tailored solutions to meet client specifications.

The DIVOM™ methodology challenges each stage of a company’s manufacturing process from Design through to Maintenance and drives improvements across all stages. The DIVOM™ process saves up to 30% on equipment operating costs. We derived the structure and design for the application from research conducted over a 10-year period. This research focused on equipment procurement projects in the medical device and pharmaceutical sectors and included the resulting impact on OEE and regulatory compliance.

5 Areas of DIVOM™

DIVOM™ ensures the design of tailored Solutions to meet client specifications. We apply DIVOM™ at the Design Stage of a project to evaluate three key areas:

Equipment Procurement – to make sure your technology matches your manufacturing requirements at the best possible price
Budget – assessing your available budget to make sure you can achieve the level of specification you require
Schedule – to make sure that sufficient time is allocated to test your systems fully

The DIVOM™ process provides clear measurable data on how a new technology will impact or improve Overall Systems Effectiveness (OSE), even at the Design Phase.
DIVOM™ evaluates your integration structures and identifies actions to drive improvements, delivering measurable risk and cost reductions.

We apply DIVOM™ to develop and implement:

Horizontal Integration – to make sure the machines in your manufacturing environment work well together
Vertical Integration – to align your manufacturing process with your office systems
External Integration – to allow service and support from expert professionals outside your company
DIVOM™ ensures the provision of solid documentary evidence that your equipment operates and continues to operate according to specification.

We apply DIVOM™ to analyse your systems and detail improvements for the electronic storage of vital operational information that clearly demonstrates your systems remain in a validated state.

The three main areas where DIVOM™ is applied for validation purposes are:

Software Testing– to make sure your software operates exactly as specified
Security– to make sure that access to your software, and the ability to alter how it works, is carefully controlled
Batch Traceability – to make sure you have ready access to all the information you need to comply with relevant legislation

When you use DIVOM™ to rate your systems, you are in a stronger position to ensure the manufacturing environment remains in a validated state. This prevents costly shutdowns and regulatory infringements.
DIVOM™ increases operational efficiency and supports the implementation of Six Sigma continuous improvement programmes.

We apply DIVOM™ to build the data tools to support operational efficiency improvements in line with the Six Sigma DMAIC approach to continuous improvement.

Management Data – to make sure you can manage your Improve and Control phases
Quality Data – to make sure your Quality Department can implement the relevant Define, Measure and Analyse phases
Engineering Data – to make sure your Engineering Department can implement the Define, Measure and Analyse phases that apply to them using Six Sigma-based operations and analysis systems.

DIVOM™ makes it easier to capture the data needed to ensure you can prove your equipment is performing.
DIVOM™ measures the efficiency of your maintenance systems.

We apply DIVOM™ to measure how efficiently your company’s maintenance is organized. The DIVOM™ assessment focuses on three key areas:

Support– to make sure the right people are there when you need them
Procedures– to make sure you have clear, well-established methods for responding to incidents, problems and changes
Knowledge– to make sure the data you need is captured and transferred to the right people at the right time
