Because there’s a better way to run your factory!
Whether you’re a high-mix/low volume machine shop or a large-scale injection molding manufacturer, you can turn your factory into a more profitable, efficient operation.
How? By leveraging the data that’s already on your factory floor. Why wait?
What you don't know can hurt you
It’s ironic: while manufacturers can run complex, high-skill processes with incredible precision tolerances practically in their sleep, their management processes are stuck in the past. Problems are solved ad hoc, one fire at a time. Data is tracked manually and imperfectly, using paper, whiteboard and ERP systems that aren’t designed for it. There’s no big picture, no coordinated plan.
End result: Late deliveries and lost margins. Frustrated operators and constant turnover. Missed opportunities, measured in millions. You’re stuck in a rut of operating reactively, where every day is Groundhog Day, again.
If you can measure it, you can improve it
Fewer than 8% of U.S. manufacturers use real-time digital tracking to manage their operations. Yet in a survey of 30,000 factories, those in the top 95th percentile in terms of growth share one common characteristic: they use data-driven performance monitoring to manage their business.
Which group do you want to be part of? Do you want to win market share, despite supply chain disruptions and other industry challenges? Or, do you want to hunker down for another six months, or 12, falling further behind?
Why not take your cue from the most successful manufacturers: stop waiting and start tracking now!
Do you really know what's happening on your shop floor?
If you’re collecting data manually, maybe it’s not as useful as you think. Manual tracking is not just time consuming, but has a whopping 15% margin of error. Needless to say, it’s hard for operational leaders make sound plans and good decisions when they’re working with old, inaccurate information.
No wonder a recent Amper survey found that the average machine shop boasts just 26% uptime!
“If you’re not making chips, you’re not making money.”
More uptime enables:
✓ Greater capacity from existing machines and people
✓ More on-time deliveries (via decreased waste & WIP)
✓ More competitive pricing and parts per labor hour
The fastest way to improve QCD: use OEE as a leading indicator
If you’re like most plants, you track P&L and QCD metrics at the end of each month. Here’s the problem: retrospective analysis isn’t that valuable. It often lacks context, as well as actionable information. Besides, you just lost a whole month waiting to fix what’s broken!
