Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Manufacturing solutions leader, Grantek Systems Integration has identified four risk areas manufacturers must be aware of to ensure their plants are functioning efficiently and profitably. To aid in the assessment of these areas, Grantek has developed tools focused on each area with suggested next steps.
The four manufacturing operational assessment area tools are:
Manufacturing IT Assessment: shows plant managers their efficiency gains, throughput increases, waste reduction and plant optimization throughout their IT system.
Manufacturing Automation Assessment: zeros in on the use of machines and control systems to optimize productivity in the production of goods and assesses efficiency, cost effectiveness, and interoperability of the manufacturing and packaging process.
Plant Safety Assessment: explores the ongoing need to assess risk level of one machine or the entire plant floor. Assessment of plant safety and implementation of manufacturing safety standards and technologies can reduce injuries and provide major improvements in the manufacturing process.
Manufacturing Maintenance & Support Assessment: based on the understanding that manufacturing machine up time is crucial to plant success, a full assessment from this tool can maximize machine up time and help a manufacturing organizations see how to increase their profitability by ensuring their machinery is maintained and running efficiently.
