How digitization improves manufacturing capabilities
Factories, like the machinery they are made of, rely on the correct adjustment and operation of their components for their good results. Manufacturing capacity is a good measure to know how “greased” a production plant is, hence we must optimize it as best as possible. Here, We give you some very practical digital tips on digitization.
What is manufacturing capacity and what is it for?
We can understand production capacity as the maximum amount of product that a line or a machine is capable of manufacturing. It is usually expressed as units produced per unit of time.
Manufacturing capacity can be flexible and can be adjusted to fluctuations in demand. However, we must bear in mind that, under conditions of maximum capacity, it is common that this is not sustainable for long periods of time or while consuming a large amount of resources. It is therefore important to find a stable and efficient capacity.
Manufacturing capacity is essential when designing a production line and its supply chain, since knowledge of it helps to define targets. In this way we will avoid delays in industrial production.
How to improve manufacturing capacity in an industrial plant?
First of all, in order to know how to improve it, we must first identify the main factors that cause losses in manufacturing capacity and on which we must act:
- Configurations and adjustments (planned stops).Breakdowns (unplanned stops).
- Reduced manufacturing speed (slow cycles).
- Small line stoppages.
- Product rejects and defective parts.
- Defective parts that are created at the start of production.
Once these obstacles have been recognized, we are now in a position to study the various ways of increasing manufacturing capacity in an industrial plant:
- Using resources longer, by adding shifts or working overtime.
- Outsourcing equipment.
- Long-term and sustainable:
- By optimizing the use of equipment.
- By acquiring new equipment.
Of all of them, we must pay special attention to the optimization of the resources available to us, since there is usually ample room for improvement in this regard.
This will improve our manufacturing capacity, while we save the cost, usually high, of the other proposed alternatives. This is where digital solutions can contribute a lot.
