I’ve written a lot about OEE before: is it a magic number, is 100% OEE a bad thing, and why many manufacturers are wasting time trying to measure it. My expertise on the subject recently attracted the attention of a COO of a major automotive parts manufacturer who wanted to discuss this in greater depth. Ultimately,[…]
How much money am I losing by not running these machines? Am I producing to capacity? And, what is under production and downtime really costing my manufacturing business?
These are questions that even the best manufacturers should constantly be asking themselves. In the name of continuous improvement, these questions should permeate the walls of your shop floor like a metronome. Why? Because improving upon these answers can save you a lot of money!
What’s the difference between a dollar spent and a dollar saved? In this case, the opportunity to impact the bottom line through savings is much greater… let me explain.
Downtime is a big problem for manufacturers. Whether that downtime is caused by planned maintenance, tool breaks, adjustments or bathroom breaks. Every minute a machine is not running represents lost revenue for the company. We talk a lot about Overall Equipment Effectiveness, the benefits of measuring OEE and using it in process improvement projects. As you[…]
Most manufacturers realize if they had the right data they could improve their manufacturing operations. Every manufacturing company wants to make a high quality product, as quickly and cost effectively as they can. Having the right data on production processes can help improve quality, update and increase throughput. “If you can’t measure it, you can’t[…]
A lot of our blog content comes from talking with customers, prospects and other people in the manufacturing industry. Just before Thanksgiving I had a discussion with a long time manufacturing executive who has used Overall Equipment Effectiveness in a lot of process improvement projects. He said something interesting to me: 100% OEE would be[…]

When I talk to people especially tech people about SensrTrx they always say “Oh, that’s like IoT for manufacturing” and then they start asking me if I have heard of this sensor or that IoT company. Then I get asked if Amazon, Microsoft and Google are competitors. What is interesting about IoT today is that[…]
I have been talking to a lot of manufacturing executives lately, discussing how they measure the performance and efficiency of equipment in their plants. During these discussions, I hear the same 3 things over and over again to the point where I might label them as Manufacturing Urban Legends. Here the myths: We are too[…]
Last week I attended IMTS, which is a large advanced manufacturing show focused on machine tools. And I learned something interesting: Depending on who you talk to only 3% – 8% of the worlds manufacturing equipment is connected to a network. Over the last 10 years most companies have offered some kind of connectivity solution[…]
