Creating a Single Source of Truth for Manufacturing Teams
Are the production teams working against each other?
Unfortunately, the answer is likely yes.
If your goal as a manufacturer is to maximize production output and minimize waste in the process, this should concern you.
Your teams are working against each other because they’re not able to operate on the same page. They have their own independent goals, objectives, and metrics to live by. Without a North Star to navigate by, the wins from one team could come at the cost of another team. The root cause of problems being shifted from team to team without improving the overall business.
Many metrics can be chosen to get an idea of the overall performance for a factory. One of the biggest investments in production is in equipment or CAPEX. Many companies use the percentage of time that this equipment gets used or overall equipment efficiency (OEE). The most powerful way to improve OEE and your production performance in general is by building a single source of truth for your manufacturing team, getting everyone moving in the same direction to the same beat, and addressing instead of moving problems.
