Optimization of the manufacturing process
Our company offers a complete range of services so that customers have only one contact for all their products. Naturally, we remain at your side from the technical study to the finishing and delivery of your products.
The internal management of the complete production cycle with the ability to check each component and each phase of production, has determined an optimal operating circle. In this way, in a path of continuous innovation, the ever increasing expectations of customers leaders in their fields, find ever improving solutions.
Anticipate market expectations
Estimated production volumes required. Sales are forecasted by reviewing historical sales data and market trends. With advanced reporting tools, SOTEMAG can obtain accurate information on its sales and inventory.
A key tool for production planning and optimization is a quality inventory management process. Automating the inventory management system helps the company see what resources it has available at any given time. With a quality inventory management system, production planners can track inventory levels and automate inventory replenishment. Automated systems also forecast inventory requirements.
Prepare staff for production
Assurance that equipment and manpower are available at all times. For a good optimization of the production, we estimate how many employees are needed in the production process and what their skills should be. That’s why we provide employees with the right tools and the necessary training on advanced machines.
Standardize steps and time management
We know where and when each step takes place and how long it takes to complete. We keep in mind that not all steps occur in order – some occur in tandem, while others follow a fixed series. Once the process has been mapped, it becomes easier to understand how long it takes to complete each step. For any repetitive activity, it is best to standardize the process.
Identify potential problems
The best way to anticipate potential problems in the production process is to collect historical data on similar jobs. With access to processing time, materials used, and failures, we apply the technique of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis to analyze the potential for risk and reduce the chances of it occurring. Through failure mode and effects analysis, we are able to study its processes in depth and find ways to reduce the impact of any potential problems in operations.
Communicate the plans
Employees are aware of all plans to optimize production, which is done through manufacturing software. The plan, associated work orders and production schedules are shared so that employees are aware of their responsibilities at all times and can check the production system at any time.
Production optimization does what we hope it does: consistently produce quality products in a timely manner, meeting market requirements.
