Versatech recently implemented a company-wide initiative aimed at using data to improve manufacturing performance and reduce reliance on overtime work. Their continuous improvement department was a part of this initiative and was able to successfully leverage their new centralized data to get off of paper and streamline processes. One of the biggest benefits for us[…]
Versatech recently sought to improve their ability to impact and enhance manufacturing quality, efficiency, and performance. Versatech CEO, Chad Hill, knew that further centralizing their manufacturing and machine data would allow the organization to improve operations and reduce their reliance on overtime work. Verstech understood that their paper tracking system and reliance on manual tracking left[…]
Recently, we finished a comprehensive case study with Versatech – a full service engineering, manufacturing, and consulting company – who recently launched a company-wide initiative to leverage data more effectively to reduce overtime and improve manufacturing production and efficiency. In this article, we’ll highlight their manufacturing engineering efforts, approaches, and results inside of the overall initiative. Manufacturing[…]
One of the biggest issues that manufacturers face is inefficiencies in their manufacturing lines. This looks like manufacturing cells with bottlenecks, unscheduled downtime, and inconsistent throughput. This is one of the first places that experiences lean manufacturing leaders look to cut costs and increase important metrics like OEE. The secret to reducing costs and improving[…]
The world of big data, AI, machine learning, and the Industrial IoT has become extremely convoluted. These innovative new technologies are now marketing buzzwords. What’s more, manufacturers are often being misled, confused, or intentionally tricked about what these technologies can and can’t do for them… now and in the future. GE and IBM do a[…]
I talk about OEE more than just about any other subject. Manufacturers that understand the benefits of lean concepts and continuous improvement philosophies, know how impactful properly calculating and measuring OEE can be. Today, I’m going to highlight the top 3 ways that manufacturers can improve OEE quality. As you may remember, there are essentially 3 pillars[…]
Just about everyone sells their product based on the premise that it will generate some form of ROI (time, money, efficiency). OEMs are no different. The key to sales growth is demonstrating to customers that the new machine they buy will bring them some measurable ROI. A lot of OEMs have traditionally done this in[…]
Continuous improvement projects have never been more important to manufacturers. Companies are getting pressure from their customers to reduce margins and produce more. Doing this well requires the collection and review of production data to increase the effectiveness of operational equipment and production lines. Unfortunately, these projects fail at a very high rate. Below are[…]
I spend a lot of time speaking with and working with some of the world’s smartest lean manufacturers. They embrace the idea of lean manufacturing. They live and breathe it and every part of their business; however, many of them admittedly struggle in one area in particular. Staying lean through periods of growth. […]
It might be surprising to some, but the manufacturing community has a pretty strong presence on Twitter. Over the years, I’ve been surprised by the quality of content and conversation that has taken place on the choppy social platform, and wanted to do my part by sharing manufacturing Twitter accounts that are must follow’s for any manufacturing professional.
Regardless of department, there are high-quality Twitter accounts that are constantly providing great information and insight. Sometimes you can uncover this information by keeping tabs on industry hashtags, but the best way to stay on top of industry rumblings is by following the manufacturing twitter accounts I’ve listed below.
