BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Gain Efficiency & Save Money – Evaluate Your Production Lines

When is the last time you took a hard look at your production lines?

  • How are we moving product through our facility?
  • Do we have work instructions / drawings available where needed?
  • Do we have frequently used inventory available at the line?
  • Where are the bottlenecks?
  • Are processes automated, where possible?

Taking a hard look at your processes and procedures may reveal some interesting results. Don’t assume that everyone is doing things the same way. Some may be superstars, and others may need some mentoring. Some processes may be outdated and costing you time and money, while others are extremely efficient. One area of the business may benefit from how others operate. Take the time to review and analyze your findings. Your company may benefit greatly as a result.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Make Your ERP Work FOR You - Streamline Your Processes

Such lofty goals you had when you implemented your ERP system. It was going to be like pressing the “Easy Button”…  then it wasn’t.

What happened? In some cases, decisions were made to implement the system “just like we used to run our old system”. Great idea? Not so much. Your business changes, and your business software needs to change as well.

Have you looked at streamlining your processes?Are you using the ERP system, but everything seems cumbersome and takes more time than its worth? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Can you automate a step or two and eliminate some manual keying?
  • Can you add barcoding to avoid keying in some information altogether?
  • How about automating the printing of some reports?

Now is the time to sit down and really review the steps required to complete the task and think out of the box a bit. Soon you can develop your own streamlined process to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Getting the Most Out of Your ERP System – The Roadmap

I hate getting lost. I feel out of control and helpless. Thank God my dad taught me early on how to read a map. Maps give us direction, points of reference, and helps us navigate the obstacles in our way.  

Do you have roadmap for your ERP system, or are you lost? An ERP roadmap can give your staff direction. It should help you create a stronger workforce that is well prepared to meet the future needs of your business. Take a hard look at what your ERP is, or isn’t doing for you. Chances are, there is much that can be done, and all you need to do is start plotting out your map.
