We all know that throughput is at the heart of all manufacturer’s success. It is a constant battle to meet ever-increasing production targets while getting your products to their destinations. Focusing on analyzing, planning, and implementing ways to increase your throughput can be the difference between impressive uptime and productivity-crushing downtime.
Read more below on the three ways to increase throughput in your facility.
Analyze Existing Equipment and Procedures
To reach the end goal of increasing production capacity, you have to take stock of your equipment and analyze procedures. To do so, Genius ERP explains that the three areas to look into include labor, equipment, and processes.
Labor: Do you have sufficient staff to get the job done? Are those employees fully trained to confidently complete their job? In most cases, productivity starts from the top. Meaning you should prioritize hiring a skilled manager to educate and lead employees.
Equipment: This is where Seetech Systems comes in. it is easy to let old worn-out equipment go unnoticed in your plant. But with advanced technology and equipment, your production can increase significantly. From items like conveyors to palletizers, the money you spend upfront will greatly benefit your throughput in the end.
Processes: Our experts can help you map out a new process that addresses the challenges and clears up congestion in your production line.
