Super Powerful Benefits of Real-Time Monitoring
Real-time monitoring gives your manufacturing business several benefits. The following are some examples:
- Allows Accurate Tracking for Production Runs
If you can’t track how long each of your production runs takes, then it’s difficult to make a schedule that makes the best use of all your resources. This includes your employees, along with raw materials and your other costs, such as utilities. Once you get a handle on how long each production run takes, you can minimize downtime and improve efficiency.
- Identifies Production Bottlenecks
No one wants production slowed down by bottlenecks in the system. Real-time monitoring identifies bottlenecks when they occur, as well as why they happen. You and your team will be able to act quickly to deal with the source of the problem, as opposed to simply trying to “put out fires.” Scheduling in your facility will improve as a result, along with on-time delivery rates to your customers.
- Streamlines Inventory Counting and Reconciliation
What takes place on the warehouse floor directly impacts your manufacturing business. It simply doesn’t make sense to have your employees performing physical counts with paper and pen or pencil and then having to wait for someone to transcribe the data into your computer system. There is always a margin of error no matter how meticulous your staff tries to be. In the meantime, you need to have accurate inventory data to determine whether you have enough materials to complete existing orders. As new orders come in, they need to be scheduled for production and inventory must be assigned to them.
Real-time monitoring lets you stay on top of inventory levels by making counting a streamlined process. Smartphones, barcode scanners, and other hardware devices make the process much quicker and easier. Any discrepancies in the inventory count are immediately apparent, even if you have some inventory stored at a second location.
