Manufacturing Breakthrough Blog

When I begin any manufacturing process optimization consultation, I start by asking a set of key questions. Please watch my video to find out what those questions are, and why I ask them.
Why you should answer these questions about your manufacturing process
This is how I can start you down the path to real transformation for your manufacturing operations. Your answers to these questions will form the basis of my upcoming posts as I explain how to tackle the potential manufacturing deficiencies you've uncovered.
Here are the questions in text:
Is your process clogged with excessive Work In Process inventory?
Are you using Manpower Efficiency or Equipment Utilization to monitor your process?
Is your On Time Delivery less than 90%?
Is your company's bottom line anemic and/or stagnated?
If you could sell more product, do you have the capacity to produce it?
