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?

What role can enterprise mobility play in project management? In order to answer this question, think of how project managers define success. Some state that success is contingent upon their ability to complete a given project on time. Others focus on maintaining the overall budget of a project, while others concentrate on exceeding the expectations of each customer. Still, others might state that success is defined by how well the project is managed. Manage it properly, and the rest should follow. So, if success is defined by all these criteria, can project managers better manage their projects when they have the right enterprise mobility solutions? They most certainly can! However, it is not merely about having a software platform that can track the progress of a project in real-time, but ultimately about ensuring that all team members are mobile or have access to rugged mobile devices. This allows them to reduce on-site costs through a myriad of improvements. Interested in knowing what these improvements are?
