Industrial Manufacturing Needs LeanAs a project-based industry, all Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies suffer from massive amounts of waste due to inefficiencies that arise from siloed operations, systems and data. Disconnected processes and poor visibility into project performance results in inflated costs with unnecessarily large buffers and slack to account for these inherent inefficiencies.
To stay ahead of competitors IEM companies must meet mounting government regulations, manage risk and rapidly respond to constantly changing customer demands and evolving markets.
To achieve their manufacturing goals, you need access to real-time information so they can accurately forecast customer demand and coordinate the flow of material and capacity to deliver their projects on time and on budget. You need to operate as lean as possible to keep control over your processes yet remain flexible enough to respond quickly to external factors.
Applying Lean to IEM
Traditional manufacturing boosted productivity tremendously by adopting lean and MRPII together in the early 1990s. These changes broke down the organizational silos and transformed the industry. We can apply this same model to industrial manufacturing, using a fully integrated ERP to facilitate a lean transformation in your organization.
By adopting a lean approach, you can:
- Remove Inefficiencies - Align your organization, work faster and respond to changes more effectively.
- Improve Decision Making - Increase visibility to identify and react to risks early before they manifest into bigger problems.
- Increase Accountability - Gain control over your processes, stay in compliance, and learn as an organization.
