Reduce lead time, changeovers and deliver on time

As cliché as it sounds, time is money. Your customers are not going to pay for anything that doesn’t add value to the product they have ordered. That is why you should think about ways to reduce lead time of your goods.

Manufacturing processes are often very complex and include a number of stages and operations – and often even transport. This means there is a lot of space for waste. Maybe your material waits too long between stages – just like the image below shows.

Or you might struggle with defects and need to do frequent rework. Do your line feeders ever bring the wrong material to the production line? It’s not uncommon for manufacturing companies to waste days and even weeks during the production process. Days and weeks nobody is going to pay for. You can reduce lead time significantly by digitizing the manufacturing process.

Productoo helps you analyze your material flow and identify your bottlenecks, create optimal production plans and make sure you produce what you need and when you need it – and fast. In addition, it allows you to stay updated on your production process in real time. If you know what’s happening, you can act faster and prevent small issues from becoming big problems.
