Operational Efficiency – Setup Your Factory Floor Operations for Success

Are you unable to meet the growing demand for your products? Do you think you are operating much below your plant capacity? You want to improve the efficiency of your operations but don’t know how? All these questions will be answered as we proceed forward in this blog. Organizations lay great stress on increasing the demand for their products and often fail to consider the implications exaggerated demand might have on their production line. It is often seen that promotions and intense marketing causes the Bullwhip Effect and forward buying. In such cases the efficiency of the plant becomes indeterminate, due to the skewed nature of demand. However if the demand remains buoyant on a regular basis without a noticeable negative trend, the importance of improving the efficiency of current operations becomes critical before considering an increase in the plant capacity.
Complacency and lack of process knowledge are the two major reasons for decreased efficiency among others. Being complacent implies that the management believes that there is no further scope for process improvement and thereby no chance of enhancing efficiency. But this belief is self destructive in nature, as the great gurus of TQM have rightly proclaimed “No process is ever perfect”, which means that there is always a scope for improvement. Organizations should strive for integration of internal and external processes and avoid complacency. Lack of process knowledge is even more lethal, as what can’t be measured can’t be improved. The best way to improve process efficiency is by the use of technology to integrate the process and make the process related metrics available to all levels of management as required. The degree of integration of various facets of the production line will determine the degree of improvement in efficiency.
