In today’s production, potential savings of between 30% and 50% – as can be seen in the reports of ProWerk projects – are still going to waste. And when that is the case, transferring production to low-wage countries is often merely a knee-jerk reaction
The reasons behind a company’s inability to exploit the potential in its own production are manifold:
- Production capabilities due to digitalization (Industry 4.0) often remain unused.
- The lack of investment, often over many years, has resulted in cost-intensive employees working with outdated production facilities.
- Considerable potential is often wasted in assembly. The proportion of non-value-creation activities is often unacceptably high here. Besides outdated assembly principles, the departments supplying items for assembly are often also responsible.
- Production systems operate with an availability that can be less than 50%! In the light of this, the cycle times and productivity calculations used for investment decisions are simply waste paper. reine Makulatur.
