The first step, and perhaps the most important step, with continuous improvement is collecting information and identifying all the disruptions in the production process. After all, first you need to know what goes wrong, before being able to improve. Correct input is essential for correct output. It concerns registration of all kinds of disruptions, in other words: downtime. Often people think of technical failures, like damaged parts or machines with suboptimal line speed. However, most losses are because of bad internal logistics and communications. Think of no or wrong supply of materials, no optimal set up of the production process, or bad instructions.
ProMISe registers downtime on the basis of a "failure tree". S&S Systems has years of knowledge and experience in production processes and we will, together with the customer, comprehensively analyze the production process and create a proper failure tree.
