It seems that every new robotics package, software, and seminar promises greater productivity and efficiency for manufacturing.
So, with all these advertised results, why hasn’t national manufacturing productivity skyrocketed?
It’s pretty simple really.
There is no one thing or idea that can do it.
Efficiency is the result of a carefully managed and choreographed dance between optimized employee skillsets, equipment, technology, and processes.
If any of these individual components are out of sync, there is no way to get the productivity boost you desire.
The next question is…
What is the ONE THING that optimizes the efforts of your employees, the function of your equipment, the role of your technology and the fluidity of your manufacturing processes?
From the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, every advances in efficiency have come about because a new technology made it possible for a person, a machine, or a process to operate faster or at a larger scale.
What about your shop floor? Is it running like a well-oiled machine?
Okay. Next question…
Is it a well-oiled machine from Henry Ford’s era or a modern, data-driven, globally competitive machine?
Sure, you can have efficiency with manual labor and tools that date back to the turn of the century, but it’s tough to meet the deadlines and nearly impossible to compete.
