我们的运作是否有效?? 跟踪运营效率的指标

2019年9月5日,星期四 写的 贝斯科

operational_efficiency_KPIs不管你的生产目标是什么, every company should have a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) that are used for measurement, 基准测试, 跟踪成功.

Determining the right manufacturing KPIs for your company helps establish goals that are tracked and monitored over a course of time—weekly, 每月, 季度, 每年,.

One of the most important metrics to track to gauge operational success is efficiency. Manufacturers know operational efficiency equals more production, 更好地分配资源, 快乐的客户, 更多的利润.

Unsure how to start measuring your plant’s operational efficiency? 这里有4个kpi来帮助你开始.

1. 机器停机时间

开始跟踪整个业务的效率, begin with the lifeblood of your manufacturing plant—the machines. Specifically, track unplanned downtime as a topline KPI.

According to downtime consultants, the majority of manufacturers face a 效率损失5% 由于停机时间,但它可以高达20%.

Unexpected downtime causes serious hiccups for operational efficiency. If one area of the production line is backed up due to an unusable asset, full production may come to a screeching halt—resulting in increased costs, 错过客户截止日期, 效率落后.

To avoid losing profits and delaying production, monitor equipment regularly with 预防性和预见性维护. Consider utilizing a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to schedule maintenance activities in advance.

另外, the ramifications of unplanned downtime are decreased with an environment that welcomes open 员工 communication. 当员工确切知道谁该去的时候 沟通停机相关的问题 to and when, they’re able to relay issues faster, lowering risks and increasing productivity.

2. 产能利用率 

If a machine is not running at 100% output capacity—meaning that it could be producing more products at a higher rate—there is an opportunity to scale production and increase efficiencies.

测量机器容量, 跟踪产能利用率作为KPI, 这是通过观察有多少 制造业总产出能力 你的植物使用. 如果机器开始变慢, your capacity utilization percentage and overall operational efficiency will drop.

通过保持来避免落后 详细服务记录 并根据需要更新现有的机器. When was the last time you replaced significant parts of your machinery? 也许是时候修复了, 重建, or replace if your machines aren’t producing at (or close to) 100% capacity utilization.

 

3. 准时交货 

Manufacturers must be mindful of the time it takes to produce and deliver products to customers or distributors. If a certain timeline was established with an end-user, it’s up to the manufacturer to efficiently produce that product to meet deadlines and keep customer satisfaction up.

A helpful KPI to measure the efficiency of your production schedule compared to customer demand is on-time delivery (OTD). 定单计划措施 the amount of finished goods or services delivered to a customer on time and 完整的.

OTD also helps manufacturers identify areas of inefficiency and bottlenecks within the production line, 是否是滞后机器, 员工, 或流程. 结果? Improved operational efficiency across production and fulfilled, happy customers.

4. 收益率

Although manufacturers generally think of total yield as a measure of quality, 它还对运营效率产生重大影响. This KPI indicates the percentage of products that are manufactured correctly the first time through the production process.

这对效率有何直接影响? 如果生产的产品有任何缺陷部件, 整个产品可能需要大量的返工, which inevitably affects total cycle times within production. A manufacturing company should aim for 100% yield to avoid rework and scrap, as both of these outcomes will negatively impact daily efficiencies.

开发 early- and late-stage strategies for reducing defects. 例如,你可以考虑 原型设计 new products or product advancements to identify and fix defects before advancing in the production process.

Is Operational Efficiency An Area of Concern for Your Facility?

Operational efficiency has a trickle-down effect, either positively or negatively impacting revenue. Do you believe there is room for improvement across your operations?
