Make 2015 Your Year for Efficiency
In 2015, customers will be demanding lower prices without sacrificing product quality. Manufacturers need to make sure efficiency is at the top of their list of New Year Resolutions.
Cimlogic, who specialise in Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), have put together six essential changes your business should make in 2015:
#1 Be informed – Having a lack of visibility and knowledge into production processes and inefficiencies can impair the quality of decision making. Implement processes and systems which provide the data and information needed to collaborate between departments.
#2 Ditch the paperwork – Using paper based manual systems can result in inaccurate information and cause poor decisions to be made. Replace paper based systems with electronic systems to benefit from accurate real-time manufacturing intelligence.
#3 Improve quality – Fixing quality problems can be time consuming and costly. Eliminate common quality problems and reduce the number of defect products.
#4 Track and trace – Reduce the cost of product recall and the damaging affect to brand reputation caused by poor quality products. Track and trace a product from ‘Farm to Fork’ for increased product quality, safety, transparency and improved recall responsiveness.
#5 Use less energy – Drill down the factors that impact energy efficiency of existing assets and machinery, in order to eliminate unnecessary energy costs. Start saving by monitoring and recording energy consumption.
#6 Keep getting better – Continuous Improvement (CI) is at the heart of any LEAN initiative. Have a dedicated CI team in place from day one.
You can address all of these challenges with the support of MES technology. To read the full article, go to http://220.127.116.11/~cimlogic/2015-year-efficiency/
