Business Rules That Drive Alerts Keeping You Up To Date
In a world where customer satisfaction is paramount, it has become extremely important to get the basics right. Many Job shops and manufacturing companies fail to get this right and many of these challenges can be attributed to owners or foreman’s not knowing where jobs are on the shop floor.
Critical information is vital to the success of a business and businesses needs to know what critical information they require to achieve high quality workmanship and to meet deadlines agreed with the customer.
This can be especially difficult when many Manufacturing Job Shops run a manual process, which generally comprises of excel spread sheets and manual job card. A manual process in itself comes with disadvantages.
Job and Order Status
These disadvantages can define a business operation, where owners or foreman’s are unable to track the progress of a certain job. This leads to delivery times not meet “over promising and under delivering” which leads to lower customer satisfaction.
Technology can be a great disruptor in the Job Shop Manufacturing industry, as many businesses in this segment are currently using the manual process policy and a business that adopts technology will get a greater advantage over the competitors, by improving customer delivery times.
