“The tiniest things can throw a wrench in Production. But Business cannot stop for anything or anyone.”
Sometimes what’s missing is not ‘qualified’ people. It’s people who actually know how to get the job done.
How much raw material do I still have? How much inventory do I have? What is my staff strength? How much of the budget is still unused? What is my system capable of? In business you need to have all the answers.
In the end, manufacturing is also about the customer. What do they want and when do they want it most? How much do they want and where will they need it? A comprehensive understanding of consumer trends is essential.
Whether your customers are distributors or consumers, you need to make them feel special if you want to retain their business. Personalized engagement with your customers makes your brand ‘sticky’.
Manufacturers lose so much due to data silos and lack of communication between departments. But everything can become crystal clear if the whole organization functions around a Single Source of Truth.
