Interruptions, caused by misplaced drills or out-of-stock parts, may seem minor, but their total effect can be significantly disruptive. Fine-tuning your operations will reduce machine downtime and increase your manufacturing speed.
Research shows that:
Around 6 percent of all scheduled jobs suffer delays due to a lack of the right tool.
Sometimes the right tools are there but cannot be identified or are inaccessible.
Operators spend about 20 percent of their time searching for tools.
Unforeseen disturbances and delays can add 20 to 30 percent to the overall time expended on a job.
Production time is lost when your staff has to place orders for tools and materials, improvise solutions and alert colleagues to disruptions in the process.
Order processing and tracking are time consuming
Invoice reconciliation is labor intensive
