FELTEN group outlined structural weaknesses Serrig from the practical point of view, March 25, 2010 not only the last critical economic conditions have led to a yet greater views is set on the profitability of the production processes of the companies. The FELTEN group has collected from the practical point of view typical structural cost drivers in the production: 1 unsecured economic calculations in the production: because there is no direct access to business applications, the production manager have no sufficiently reliable figures for the accurate costing of orders or also the relations of production as a whole. Not be uneconomic conditions or only delays noted. Even if short-term planning decisions must be taken by orders of A customer, lacking an adequate assessment, whether the relevant productions at all price just carry out. 2 optimization measures not immediately following errors: the for Production control several days later are often only relevant information, possibly already again very different production conditions. This measures to optimize with corresponding productivity or other economic disadvantages can be often more effectively start enough.
3. no sufficient KPI control possible: the KPI (key performance indicator) approaches in their depth of evaluation are not sufficiently used. A real-time monitoring through intelligent analysis and control instruments is required for the productivity barriers faster, more precise and targeted improvement measures identify make. 4. excess of automation in processes: the MES approaches (manufacturing execution systems) in the conventional manner seek to maximize the automation in the process. But the higher the degree of automation, the lower is inevitably the flexibility, but no longer causing increasingly rapid changes in the Suits markets. This automation generates a cost problem, unless it has sufficient balance for the flexibility. In this respect must be aimed to create a needs-based coexistence of automated and manual processes. 5. the importance of the people in the production process is neglected: many automation strategies ignore that man as carrier of intelligence, is to never fully replace knowledge and experience in processes with technology.
