Healthcare experts are unanimous in their advice that individuals should have regular examinations to achieve optimum health and longevity, rather than waiting for a problem that requires inconvenient and expensive emergency care.
That scenario plays out precisely the same with manufacturing processes. Outside optimization services are often called in only to solve acute problems like poor quality or low productivity. Tran says they are equally valuable in addressing chronic, but often unseen, hindrances to an optimized process. In almost every process, regardless of how stable or reliable it is, there are opportunities to advance its performance. OEMs and third-party engineering firms can apply the tools and insights needed to bring about major, sustainable process improvements that deliver an impressive return on investment.
“Inviting optimization experts to investigate a process typically results in some combination of enhanced quality, reduced costs and shortened production time, all of which may provide a business advantage, “Tran says. “Most plant managers are surprised when they discover the improvement – and fast return on investment – from optimizing a process that has no apparent problems.
