How often does your enterprise take the time to track the cycle times emerging from a given work cell? Are you even set up to track the fluctuations in these cycle times, or are your current manual processes making the entire exercise impossible? More importantly, how much better would your enterprise be if it were able to track cycle time fluctuations in real-time via an enterprise mobility network? In order to answer these questions, think of how important it is to isolate the root causes of down time. Think of the high costs of work stoppages and how these interruptions impact your production and ultimately, your company’s bottom line. Granted, analyzing cycle times and minimizing work stoppages is extremely difficult with manual tracking methods. However, it is a much easier endeavor when your company upgrades its production team to use rugged handheld mobile devices and barcode scanners. So, how can the right enterprise mobility solution empower your company to not only track fluctuations in cycle times, but ultimately eliminate the high costs associated with down time?

Every company wants to have strong cohesion within its business development team. Every company wants its marketing, sales and customer service departments to work as one, or at the very least, to provide congruent message to the market. Unfortunately, far too few are able to provide that message. Far too few are able to properly manage the customer’s expectations, and far too many come up short when managing their customer’s urgent requirements. Is this because these internal departments refuse to work together? Is it because they have conflicting goals and objectives, or is it simply because they lack access to the same vital, accurate, up-to-the-minute information? Well, in most cases, these three aforementioned business functions want to work as one. It’s in their best interest to do so. Unfortunately, the problems are typically caused by a lack of essential information, information that is often put together via manual processes. So, what’s the solution?
Today, manufacturers must be able to respond at a moment’s notice. The ability to increase production throughput relies upon making split-second decisions, decisions that must be made in real-time and ones that are predicated on access to time critical production information. To be successful requires manufacturers do away with manual production tracking methods, and instead rely upon the accuracy and ease-of-use of today’s enterprise mobility solutions. Manual production tracking is an outdated and antiquated approach to the time-sensitive needs of today’s constantly changing marketplace, a marketplace where time waits for no manufacturer and the consequences of not being able to react, are severe. Today’s enterprises must do away with manual processes and turn to the definitive benefits of enterprise mobility solutions.
