We are exposed to different industries such as manufacturing, retail and even marketing as a sourcing company. We completely understand how competitive these industries are and it is a must for us to adjust to the competition. You cannot simply stick to the basics to be competitive in any business environment. In this blog post, we will further take a closer look at one of the more complex processes: a production line assessment.
This process is much like supplier assessment and manufacturing analytics except this time around we dig deeper into the supplier or manufacturer’s system/processes, operating procedures and production standards. We would not really intervene to how they do the following, but we only want to make sure these factors are in line with the company standards and our own expectations from them.
What is a Production Line?
A production line is the process flow of manufacturing a product. It starts from the materials and components of the product, the creation process and up to the end of the line when the final product is materialized. The production line can easily be described through words but the actual process including the micro-processes involved can really be tedious. However, you really must go through production line assessment if you want to significantly decrease costs and achieve best quality.
As a globally competitive sourcing company, we want our manufacturers and suppliers to follow an optimized production process for their production line. In the world of manufacturing, this term is known as “Lean Operations” which is one of the components of the Lean Manufacturing operation system. Most production processes are underutilized and could follow rudimentary methods, which is why it is important for us to assess them from time to time. Helping them achieve an optimized production process will not only help our company but will also benefit them to improve their services.
We want to ensure good quality (or at least reach client standards) of our manufactured goods. The best way to achieve this is to assist our suppliers and manufacturers in their production line process and make sure it is optimized for better efficiency and maximum productivity. There is no need to spend resources in this process, you only must set standards for the manufacturers and suppliers to comply. The production line is not our work as a sourcing company, but it is our responsibility to assess the system is up to the company’s standards.
Why Hire Production Line Assessment Services
Production line assessment is the process of setting up and optimizing the production process. Basically, it ensures procedures run as smoothly as possible. Intrepid Sourcing manufacturing service starts with the basic factory production line then broadens the scope for a complete production line assessment considering the whole supply chain.
We have a three-fold production line assessment which includes machines, material inputs and supplier review. These factors are crucial in order to obtain an efficient and streamlined factory production line for all components and the final assembly. A single faulty part or wrongly specified manufacturing step can seriously impair the quality of your product or lead to delays.
- Set Up Your Production Line: A manufacturing production line requires an extensive assessment before starting. All parts of the supply chain are considered so the production line never encounters problems. Our production line assessment perfects your production line.
- Identify Bottlenecks: Our new product development process identifies issues before production is started. We help you address these issues in time and for a smoother production line right away. Whether a new factory production line or an old one, our process will help you.
- Get Proper Documentation: Only few production line companies help you to develop a production process chart ensuring that every component and the final product fulfil your expectations. This means your production line will be mapped out from beginning to end so unexpected problems will not arise.
Factory Production Line Assessment
Why it Matters
You may be asking, “What is a production line assessment?”. On paper, a production line assessment is something vague, but in reality, it is one of the most important parts of the production line process. In short, it checks to make sure you don’t have any problems during production.
The key with any factory production line planning and management is to have fast turnaround times and a low defect rate. In order to receive the best possible product, a high-quality, simple production line assessment is an absolute necessity. This means breaking down the manufacturing process into smaller parts so you can view the production line from the factory’s perspective.
Making a manufacturing production line as streamlined and efficient as possible will ultimately lead to the success of your venture. Breaking the manufacturing process into finer details creates a standard for your costing structure and provides cost saving potential. It also shows you which parts of the factory production line work and which do not: this is especially important for a new production line.
We want to ensure good quality (or at least reach client standards) of our manufactured goods. The best way to achieve this is to assist our suppliers and manufacturers in their production line process and make sure it is optimized for better efficiency and maximum productivity. There is no need to spend resources in this process, you only must set standards for the manufacturers and suppliers to comply. The production line is not the primary focus of our function, but it is our responsibility to assess the system is up to standards.
