Making the same things everyday – while simultaneously reducing the cost
In today’s global marketplace remaining competitive means you must continually evaluate the effectiveness of your business performance and its associated costs. You know that if you aren’t cost competitive you won’t be able to grow your business. Your customers get more demanding as time passes and as contracts come up for renewal. So, it becomes imperative to be able to analyze and dissect your costs so that they are understandable to you, enabling you to take action. And that is the “three-legged stool” of cost reduction. Performance, analysis, correction/improvement.
If cost reduction is one of the pillars of repetitive manufacturing than another is the ability to meet customer demands without carrying excessive inventory. This means that you must be able to properly plan and manage your supply chain more proactively than ever before.
Repetitive manufacturing requires stability and predictability. On-time delivery is of the utmost importance when your customer is an automotive assembly line that costs thousands of dollars per hour to operate. And your job is to make sure you don’t let down your customer.
