Why Manufacturing Situational Awareness Matters

It is no secret that the more timely you are aware about your production, the better you can manage it. This blog post shares our learning from manufacturers about situational awareness. We explore the topic from different perspectives in the shop floor: from operators to production and business managers.

Lead Manufacturing with Data

Every manufacturing company has a lot of different data sources. Whether from shop floor devices, or from IT systems, the database exists. However, being able to utilize such data is another story, yet it is one of the keys to success in part manufacturing industry. Read the blog post to understand why and how to get started.

Understanding OEE in Manufacturing

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a key metric in monitoring, measuring, and improving the current performance of your manufacturing. However, it is not the most straightforward metric for one to understand and follow correctly. Read the blog to be aware of how to use OEE and what benefits it can bring in the context of part manufacturing.

Collaboration and Ecosystem Thinking in Manufacturing

While not widely addressed within the manufacturing industry, close collaboration among stakeholders is one crucial key to improving efficiency in production. Understanding the concept and taking actions towards ecosystem thinking and collaboration, part manufacturers stand high chances of leading the competition in unique ways.
