In any business venture it is critical to understand the progress that has been made. As a data-driven organization we are consistently tracking and analyzing data in order to ensure continuous improvement of our operations. Creation a data driven organization requires the development of a culture that values data, building the infrastructure to capture the data, and establishing clearly defined standards.
Capturing data is only the beginning, analyzing this information is what makes it valuable. Tracking Key Performance Indicators (KPI) is vital to ensuring that we are reaching optimal performance of our teams in the field. These metrics assist in keeping our staff aligned on common goals across the organization.
The following graphic provides a high-level summary of the KPI we are tracking on our Certified Cargo Screening Facility – K9 (CCSF-K9) program. The traditional yardstick measurements used to judge work performance within this space are drastically different from those of a normal industrial company.
Since January 2019 our teams have searched over 158,694 boxes and 169,866 skids. Clearly understanding the number of items that our CCSF-K9 teams have searched is essential to determining the Alarm Rate. Our 0.008% Alarm Rate is significantly lower than that of traditional X-ray screening which we have found 53% of mechanical parts and 22% of electronics are identified as suspicious items. These items must then be searched by an additional method which increases the total time required to ensure that they are clear of any hazards.
