Manage Capacity Constraints

ARE CAPACITY CONSTRAINTS hinderING OUTPUT? WHAT IMPACT DO THEY HAVE ON CUSTOMER RELATIONS? NEED TO INCREASE CAPACITY TO MEET CUSTOMER DEMANDS? 

Do you have real-time visibility of capacity to schedule production effectively and understand the capacity required to make more product with the same resources?

Many companies routinely hit capacity constraints and immediately consider adding overtime for existing workers, hiring new staff for a new shift, or buying a new production line. Manufacturers often overlook the benefits of optimising the efficiency of existing equipment and production lines. To meet customer demands and stay competitive an organisation's ability to improve capacity utilisation, whilst reducing operating costs has never been more important.

Cimlogic help manufacturers uncover their true capacity to fulfil production output, improve customer relations and reduce cost per unit by:

  • reducing process variabilityCapacity contstraints

  • reducing changeover times

  • improving operator performance

  • reducing overtime expenditures

  • improving the bottom line of production operations

 

Do you have the systems and processes in place to answer these questions accurately and explore capacity challenges further?

  • What is my cost per unit (labour included)?
  • How do I get more output from the same amount of labour?
  • I want to expand our products but don’t know if we have the capacity to do it?
  • Are we investing in the best areas of capacity improvement? 
  • What is the cost of losing a customer due to poor lead-times and unfulfilled orders?
