Leveraging Plant Floor Messaging and Communication Solutions Reduces Downtime
With the manufacturing industry clearly rebounding, global markets are expanding and capital expenditures seemingly increasing to support worldwide demand. Domestically, plant capacity utilization is at all-time highs for many verticals, especially for the automotive OEM’s. Business is good for most and many are forced to make critical decisions as to how best to spend their capital. Do they invest in expanding their current operations? Or, do they look to build new Greenfield plants? Regardless, because you can’t improve unless you measure, you need a proactive monitoring system.
Downtime is widely considered the “root of all evil” for manufacturers and negatively impacts plant efficiency, performance and the bottom line. Leveraging plant floor messaging and communications solutions enables hourly and salaried employees to make better informed decisions as they have access to Real-Time information that can limit downtime occurrences.
For those manufacturers who have adopted global standards and common systems, the decision to expand or build becomes a little easier. Why is this, because they have likely implemented some sort of production monitoring solution as well as adopted methodologies such as Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma or TPS to Lean out their operations.
To support our customers’ continuous improvement initiatives by providing cost effective solutions that identify out of tolerance events in real time and distribute critical information in a highly visible way to decision makers.
