Good manufacturing controls have been around for many years. They have helped companies go through the point in their growth cycle when the initial fly-by-night system they struggled to put in place as a young company no longer satisfy demands or schedules.

The changes required to move from batch processing and other manufacturing models to a more efficient customer-oriented model are generally established when companies hit the wall in terms of continually trying to balance demand and output capabilities.

Good manufacturing control systems demand that companies gain greater cooperative control over suppliers, smooth out scheduling and manufacturing flows, improve quality, and bring employees into the overall operational authority structure where some decisions and improvements are moved to lower levels as ordering, receiving in-process and customer teams work to smooth throughput.

Lean systems, for example, result in on-time deliveries without the usual high stress often associated with ramming product through to meet daily, weekly, monthly ends and quarterly volume commitments.

Changes in attitude, purchasing and ordering, production flows, training, shared responsibilities, shipment schedules and all aspects of the operation are impacted.

Once a controlled manufacturing system is in place and functioning, inventory turns will improve resulting in higher process capabilities, smaller lot sizes, quicker cycle times, simplified processes, reduced overproduction and lower costs while satisfying customer demands in a more timely and profitable manner.

Common manufacturing system controls may be applied to just about any type of manufacturing system.

Why you should Attend: During the pandemic months, companies have struggled with a completely new set of manufacturing problems.Many manufacturing companies have lost key employees and systems have been disrupted to the point that great imbalances have occurred.

This webinar is designed to help new and returning employees get a comprehensive but quick review of the manufacturing control concepts needed to reestablish lost controls.

Companies whose inventories are piled up in receiving, in process and in finished goods have succeeded in tying up operational funds and exposed themselves to industry demand changes that result in obsolete as well as excessive inventory. If you take a minute to walk around your manufacturing facility and look at inventory piles, you can quickly get an estimate of how much of your capital is tied up rather than working to increase profits.

Basic proven manufacturing control concepts are designed to remove those costs, allow the company to respond more quickly to changing demands, deliver on time, save space, and establish a more mature manufacturing model capable of expansion when needed. This review will help to get you and your staff back on track.
