Most manufacturers look to improve their factory efficiency by controlling scheduling, job costing, inventory, and engineering systems in their facility but by what means and how much can you really improve that efficiency? The difference really comes between being accurate and being precise; and no they do not necessarily mean the same thing.
Accuracy is the ability to hit your target efficiently, whereas precision is how consistently you can maintain those factory efficiency percentages. What level of efficiency can be achieved when your company leadership is able to have real-time data and control over the costs? What systems will help achieve a 99% efficiency rating and lean your manufacturing through predefined workflows in an all-in-one system?
