To remain competitive and to continue increasing profits, businesses must constantly work on improving productivity. For manufacturers, this is especially important because the more products you make, the lower your overheads, and the higher your profits.
At the end of the day, improving productivity on the factory floor relies on the efficiency of employees, equipment and processes. In this two-part post, we look at six ways to increase productivity on the factory floor. See part one of this post for the first three ways we discussed as to how you can increase productivity on the factory floor. Herewith the next three ways in which you can increase productivity on the factory floor:
Keep up the maintenance
Running top of the line systems and machinery is of no value if you don’t make maintenance a priority. The costs related to unexpected downtime and unplanned maintenance can rack up quickly and significantly, so while new equipment and systems will improve your productivity, it requires an investment in maintenance to ensure that everything is running optimally.
The new release of Dynamics 365 for Operations is Microsoft’s new business solution for medium to large organisations. Dynamics 365 for Operations was previously known as AX7 and is a single software system that helps run businesses more effectively. It is a digitally transformed financial and operational ERP system.
A lack of organisation leads to a surprising amount of lost profits and wasted man-hours. From the layout of your factory floor to your office, to how you store your data, staying organised can help you maximise efficiency and enhance productivity in no time.
Any manufacturing plant is most productive when everyone works together with the same goal in mind. The better the members of your team can work together the more they will encourage a productive workplace culture. Ensure that you create an environment for collaboration and that everyone has access to the necessary information and tools they need to get the job done.
