Key Performance Indicators

The KPIs

Waste Handling is monitored daily through fourteen KPIs under the Operational KPIs Category. The types used here can be grouped under Process Performance Metrics, and Human Resource & Staffing.

They evaluate the quantity and quality of the incoming waste stream, the factors that influence performance, the performance, and the outcomes.

The Confounders

As with all statistical exercises KPIs are affected by Confounding Variables that influence both the dependent variable and independent variable, causing a spurious association. A simple example is that of the re-sorting process which is totally independent of baling operations – but a breakdown of the concerned machinery will cause an apparent lowering of the sorting rate for the quantum re-sorted cannot be determined as only baled material can be conveniently weighed.

The viewer is requested to refer to the table listing out the various Confounders, before arriving at a decision as to whether the outcome is real or spurious
