Manufacturing Efficiency – Diving Deeper
Applied Engineering dives deep into your manufacturing processes to assess which areas are working and which areas could use improvement. Some areas that often could use improvements include:
- Overall workflow
- Inventory accuracy
- Real-time KPI
- Data flow
Improving a company’s manufacturing efficiency is a continual process.
- Background: Establish a baseline (time studies, throughput, identify and record KPI), evaluate your process and conduct a workflow study, identify bottlenecks and areas for improvement.
- Plan: Make an improvement plan based on the background data – i.e. leverage lean principles (minimize non-value actions), factory layout, software integration, manufacturing engineering software.
- Implement plan: Schedule the complete identified plan. Complete an ongoing evaluation during implementation.
- Review: It is important to review the changes you’ve made and assess their level of success. This should be an ongoing process.
Contact Applied Engineering today to improve your manufacturing efficiency.
