Too often, scheduling projects never reach their potential. Even when the planners/schedulers productivity increases, the factory floor might not. Why? Because of a lack of effective communications…like simply putting the schedules on the floor. FACTIVITY extensions can improve the compliance and provide valuable information to improve the scheduling process with better data and more accountability.
- Control dispatching so the next job on the schedule is really the next one worked on the floor
- Alarms management (and workers) when productivity problems, scrapping too much or downtime happen so corrections can be made to the schedule before customers complain
- Match the actual start/end time of each job to the scheduled start/end times to see when, where and how often production performs to the plan
- Track the “time standards” on each job/part so your schedule matches your “real” rate of production.
