Manufacture more, for less

Presentation

Manufacturers around the world are facing many challenges and opportunities to remain competitive. Manufacturers’ prices are now set in global markets – and are determined by global supply and demand. For most manufacturing sectors today, intense competition and excess capacity are driving prices down, but the cost of raw materials is rising in line with worldwide industrial growth.

It has never been more important for companies to take a closer look at each step of their manufacturing process and implement best practices throughout their organization. We can help you do this.

Chasing the bottom line

With prices falling across industrial markets and business costs on the rise, manufacturers around the world are having to restructure their businesses, market strategies, production and supply systems in order just to remain profitable, let alone grow. Innovation is driven by bottom-line pressures. Most companies need to use methodologies such as Lean Manufacturing to reduce waste and Six Sigma to increase quality, in order to improve manufacturing productivity.

By implementing these programs, and other manufacturing process improvement techniques, companies bring products to market more quickly, ensure customer satisfaction and maintain their market share. Improving manufacturing productivity involves measuring and analyzing data and making effective decisions based on real data. Ensuring the success of these operational excellence initiatives often depends on divisions working together to share data and interpret production data appropriately.

Process optimization can’t happen if you don’t know where you are starting from. The first step to improving property management is to understand where you are losing time and money, the best way to do this is by measuring.

Understand Value Added versus Non Value Added time
Work activities that do not add value to your product or service are considered Non Value Adding activities (NVA). Continually monitoring how time is spent is the best way to determine where the highest rate of NVAs are within your Manufacturing process. Implementing professional work measurement tools is the first step to maximizing productivity by understanding and eliminating NVA time.
