Laying Out Your Process
At first glance, your production process may look flawless, although it’s possible it is, it’s improbable, in most cases there could be a way to optimize production. Maximizing the production process can mean more than just producing the most product possible; cutting waste, removing downtime, and proper planning can all make a difference in your business’s wallet. Laying out your process to identify inefficiencies can be difficult, here are some places we think you should start.
Can Your Production Be Automated?
Is there a place in your production that is manually done that could be done autonomously? Whether that’s checking products or activating equipment? Things like quality checks and button pushing can be turned into an automated process.
Is it possible to save material waste? Could you reduce waste by setting up a system that improves the cutting or measuring of raw material? Saving money is gaining money, and the more waste that can be saved and turned into product means more money in your pocket.
The Advantage of Being Ready vs. Reacting
Proactive maintenance uses data to seek out possible issues before they happen. Being preventive and aware of your equipment needs versus reacting when they are broken can be a time saver. Reactive maintenance seeks to restore critical process equipment, and repairing critical process equipment means that your process is down. Here are a few benefits of proactive maintenance as an effective production booster.
Proactive Maintenance Advantages
- Reduced Long-term costs
- Planned downtime
- Longer Equipment Lifetime
- Increased Efficiency
