In any manufacturing plant, it is common to encounter downtime, whether due to machine and equipment failures, lack of materials or personnel, or even a lack of production schedule. However, often the lack of knowledge about the cause of these downtimes and the absence of measures to reduce them can have a negative impact on the efficiency and profitability of the plant. Moreover, it can foster a negative work environment where teams blame each other for these stoppages.
For all these reasons, it is important for plant managers and supervisors to be vigilant about downtime and take measures to identify, quantify, and understand its causes.
VisualBoard’s data collection stations allows operators to instantly report when a downtime event occurs. The magnitude of the downtime is quantified from start to finish, and if additional information is required, the person resolving the issue can provide it in our application. For example, they can enter the root cause of the downtime, classify a failure by type, and more.
