Easier and More Flexible Brainstorming Sessions and Overall Increased Efficiency
MindGenius was initially installed at Oil Control soon after it was released in early 2001. The mind mapping software was primarily purchased to improve brainstorming of processes, projects and to perform fault tree analysis. Since its introduction employees have reported many benefits including an increase in efficiency and significant time savings when carrying out various tasks.
Oil Control Ltd, which is based in Coventry, was founded in January 1987 and is a member of the Italian Oil Control Group. The Oil Control group manufacture and distribute a vast range of high quality hydraulic valves, solenoid valves and power packs to many of the world’s most famous manufacturers, and is recognised as a market leader in the production of ‘motion control’, ‘overcentre’ and ‘hose burst’ protection valves.
Employees found MindGenius to be a simple to use, yet very effective and useful tool. The benefits of MindGenius became apparent almost immediately. When carrying out fault tree analysis, MindGenius is an
effective tool in drilling down to identify main causes of the problem.
Brainstorming sessions are now easier and more flexible, MindGenius saves time as ideas are quickly typed into a MindGenius map, replacing the time-consuming traditional pen-and-paper approach. All amendments are easily carried out without having to redraw complete maps, and once the brainstorming session is over all maps are easily e-mailed to all concerned – a major time saver!
MindGenius was initially installed in the Quality Department, but soon other members of staff were utilising the software and reaping the benefits. The software is now widely used within the Quality & Design and Development departments.
