Productivity is an ultimate goal of the manufacturing industry. Especially, high production on a short span of time without any bad quality is a big dream of an Industry. However, to achieve this, the manufacturing industry should think of some key factors like people, process, digital maturity, and good management. Productivity Loss is an addressable hotspot of success. The key issue which every industry faces is the productivity loss which results due to variation of estimation time to execution time, bad quality products, worst raw material, improper Visibility, no schedule, no measurement metrics, unoptimized process, & cost inefficient.
By using the 6 ways mentioned below, you can definitely improve productivity. Let us have a deeper look in it.
Analyse and Understand Availability Loss
The first & foremost is the analysing and understanding about failure which will almost help you choose the successful way. Similarly improving productivity where productivity loss actually occurs is a major point. Losses are activities that absorb resources without creating bringing any value to the organization. The difference between Planned Production Time to runtime is called availability Loss. Mostly Equipment failure & Setup Adjustments are key factors that comes under an Availability Loss. A simple solution is the measurement of OEE which helps to rectify the problem.
Isolate Slow Performing Machines
The Slow and worst performance of the machines will have a heavy impact on productivity loss. It is necessary to analyse and measure every machine in a production line with the performance metrics. Now, compare its performance with various machines & detect slow performing machines. Then isolate such slow performing machines and so it won’t affect the workflow of the production line. Finally, diagnose & find out the reason behind the slow performance of machines and rectify it.
Start Micro Planning
Pre-planning the goal of production is an important one. Micro planning determines the detailed implementation of the identified process. On the whole production process should be segmented as a small process with proper planning. This method has a high level chance of improving productivity.
Monitor WIP (Work in progress)
WIP (Work in Progress) is a concept used to describe the flow of manufacturing costs from one area of production to the next, once the raw material arrives. Monitoring of WIP will effectively improve productivity. This is because, it is easy to rectify if there is a delay in progress.
Up skill your workforce
Collecting brains makes an effective solution that every team members like production unit members, quality members, maintenance members, superior, financial team members, selective members from various shifts, technology team and management will be gathered to conduct an effective meeting about productivity loss, Market status, financial Management, Digital Transformation and futuristic Plans. The outcome of the meeting will definitely decide Industrial growth.
Optimize the Process
Once you have retrospect, workflow and output of meeting will start identifying areas where technology and process need some update or change. Now optimize the process and redefine fine-tune architecture with the latest technologies and follow the optimized process definitively to improve productivity.
