Topper Industrial helps customers identify replacement and maintenance key metrics. These data points help increase uptime by 20 percent or more, improving labor and machinery utilization. Backlogged workorders decrease dramatically when replacement parts are readily available.
Losing production, on the other hand, is expensive training. The Topper plan helps customers focus on both scenarios measuring OEE, TAKT time, and speed loss. Together these metrics will give manufacturers a better understanding of a production line’s true losses.
No manufacturer wants downtime. The costs of downtime are significant and recent research shows that the average manufacturer deals with 800 hours of downtime per year – or more than 15 hours per week. The average automotive manufacturer loses $22,000 per minute of downtime. Aberdeen Research reported that 82 percent of companies have experienced unplanned downtime over the past three years and that unplanned downtime can cost a company as much as $260,000 an hour.
When equipment goes down, the employees being paid to operate the equipment essentially become useless. This results in wasted labor costs. The most obvious low hanging fruit can be found in readily available replacement parts. When a certain amount of product in the warehouse keeps operations running smoothly, downtime is avoided.
When a machine stops working properly, it puts a strain on other parts of the system. Material flow is interrupted and completely interferes with the direct and obvious benefits of fork truck free cart delivery solutions.
