 Why are Manufacturing and Industrial Operations Different?

 

Manufacturing is a high speed and high stakes environment. Processes are interrelated and when something goes wrong there is a snowball effect. This coupled with the large volume and wide variety of specialized equipment make the job of managing maintenance in the manufacturing industry an extremely difficult job.

Equipment is costly to purchase and to maintain. The parts utilized are unique and can be difficult to find. Downtime is particularly costly. Bottom line, performing maintenance effectively is a real challenge.

Manufacturing and industrial facilities require a more comprehensive CMMS Software to meet their specific needs. With such a high volume of  specialized equipment the need for tracking equipment history, inventory, and drawings is critical. The ability to efficiently schedule preventive maintenance to minimize the amount of times you have to shut down a machine is equally important.

COGZ manufacturing maintenance software is designed to excel in a manufacturing environment with powerful features that meet these requirements. We have helped thousands of manufacturing operations effectively manage their maintenance departments. See our article on Five Ways Maintenance Planning with COGZ can increase your productivity.

 

Manufacturing Industry Challenges

 

The manufacturing industry is facing a host of new challenges in today’s economy. The industry as a whole is evolving to address these difficulties. Individual companies will be forced to evolve as well if they hope to thrive in this changing environment. Effective planning and flexibility has become crucial to surviving the rapidly changing conditions of the global economy. Manufacturing Maintenance Software can help maintenance teams adapt. The biggest challenges facing the manufacturing industry today are:

 

  • Shifts in Demand – It is difficult to keep production up to meet increases in demand as well as new demand for different products.
  • Rising Costs and Lower Profit Margins – Inflation and supply shortages have driven costs to all time highs, making it difficult to achieve acceptable levels of profitability.
  • Workforce Shortages – A shortage of employees has made it a challenge to meet production goals.
  • Supply Chain Disruptions – Limited availability of parts and raw materials have made it tough to keep equipment up and running and producing products.
  • Cybersecurity Risks – Cyber threats such as data breaches and ransomware attacks have required manufacturing facilities to take new security precautions to ensure that their valuable data is safe.
  • Emphasis on Safety – The pandemic brought new focus to worker safety in manufacturing plants. Safety measures must be performed and tracked to avoid future production interruptions.

How the Manufacturing Industry is Evolving

 

The manufacturing industry has been forced to evolve to adapt to the new challenges facing their industry. Demand for products continues to rise. The result is a need to increase production levels with a lower numbers of employees available to perform the work. The industry has taken the following measures to meet demand while remaining profitable.

Rise in Automation – Increases in demand coupled with workforce shortages has forced the industry to implement even more automation to keep productivity high. Automation saves long term costs and increases production levels. Maintenance requirements will increase with the addition of more complex machinery.

Adoption of Smart Technology – Internet connected machinery allows close monitoring of manufacturing processes. This allows for identification of opportunities to optimize efficiency. Data analytics is used to improve processes.

Retain Skilled Workers – With workforce shortages and the great resignation it has become crucial to keep skilled workers. Creating a favorable company culture, reducing stress on employees, and providing continuous learning and growth opportunities are some ways that skilled employees can be enticed to stay at your company.

Beat Supply Chain Challenges – Locating and ordering parts has become difficult and expensive. Data analytics is being used to manage supply chain disruptions.

Move toward Predictive Processes – Predictive Maintenance is being used to streamline manufacturing processes. Equipment is monitored and data is collected to predict when they will fail. Maintenance can then be performed prior to the predicted failure. This approach has been proven to reduce unplanned downtime, cutting costs and increasing productivity.
