Longevity Consulting Demonstrates Successes in USDA’s Business Process Improvement Program

Washington, DC—January 23, 2013— Longevity Consulting, one of the Washington region’s leading providers of Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) training and support to the federal government, was honored with commendation for their project successes with the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services (APHIS), 2012 Business Process Improvement (BPI) program.

USDA’s Business Process Improvement program employs BPI methods and Lean Six Sigma tools to improve its processes and generate faster, higher quality and lower cost results. Longevity Consulting has served as the coach and mentor to the USDA’s APHIS agency in learning and applying the BPI methodology and Lean Six Sigma tool set to its business processes. Successes in 2012 include reduction of 100 days of process cycle time for the Veterinary Biologics process, over $26,000 in labor costs eliminated in the Time and Attendance process and an over 50% lead time reduction in the Biotech Position process.

Longevity continues to support the USDA going forward in 2013, helping to identify a new set of BPI project initiatives, train new BPI practitioners and support specific project work to achieve measureable business improvements. Longevity Consulting CEO, Bobby Long, is “honored to have received such prestigious recognition for our efforts at USDA and will continue to strive to exceed their expectations.”
