Much like the perfect BLT requires the best bacon, lettuce and tomato (along with your favorite condiment), there is a similar process to making a perfect combination for your production facilities. The ingredients here are business, manufacturing and technology. Here is how to slather up the perfect “sandwich” for production.
The best production models speak to all three components of the production world – business, manufacturing and technology. When one can speak the same language among all three, you have a perfect recipe! Unfortunately, that is not always possible. Being able to speak the same language involves understanding where each factor of production is coming from, and often when investment is involved, there are lots of opportunities to miscommunicate.
From a communication standpoint, each factor has a different perspective. Business looks at the big picture (how we lost revenue), while manufacturing is more specific (why this machine start up time is killing our production) and technology even more so – (how can we utilize the data on this particular machine to solve this problem?). Because each position has its own agenda, what you need is a way to connect everyone to the same basic goal of solving the problem from multiple points of view.
One of the best ways to bridge all three factors together is to work with an expert on the topic.
