Plant operations house the core value-adding process for companies that produce tangible goods. As a result, these plant operations must be effective and efficient for the company to compete, whether production is owned or outsourced. In fact, companies have figured out ways to improve productivity – from better equipment and technology to intelligent and lean practices. This is a critical reason why the number of people employed in production industries in the industrialized world has dropped so dramatically in the past 30 years.
Pressure to improve production efficiency and effectiveness never ends. Production is a multi-disciplinary endeavour that requires technicians, managers, supervisors, production workers plus quality and test or laboratory professionals, financial controllers, and engineers of many disciplines (manufacturing, process, controls, quality, compliance, etc.) to converge as teams to improve operating outcomes.
Production facilities are like snowflakes – no two are identical. Yet, companies can learn from each other. Over 25 years, Cambashi has seen what makes various plants effective and efficient. We understand the pressure of the environment, and the need to keep making product. As companies become more sophisticated, they are learning to use the production plant as a key lever in how they develop new products, sell new customers, and please shareholders.
