Gain 360 Degree Insight To Your Shops Performance
You don’t know what you don’t know, and if you look no further, you won’t know. Or perhaps you won’t know until it’s too late. We want to share our hindsight with you to create awareness for all of the in-between issues that can be robbing your entire operation of efficiency and effectiveness.
The most comprehensive of its kind in the industry, Seco Manufacturing Evaluation is an in-depth drill-down analysis of your workshop backed by our eight decades of global metal cutting expertise. By evaluating and analyzing your operations, we can deliver facts that quantify your improvement potential that add up to real savings and improved performance.
We believe in these concepts – our own experience of transformation to operational excellence has proven invaluable for our 17 production units. Key issues addressed are to:
Our Manufacturing Evaluation process focuses on three inter-related elements of your business – A broad view of your operations, how personnel and equipment are combined into unique value for the customer, and an analysis of the core capability of machining.
Manufacturing environment: A number of issues are reviewed – including KPI selection, communication and production maturity – to determine the overall relationships, behavior and flow within the factory.
Manufacturing system: The combination of machine and labor productivity are studied, including how value is added to the product for the customer.
Machining process: Several processes – including tool wear and life cycle analysis – are followed to determine how machining is performed and the impact on overall manufacturing performance.
The full program involves pre-evaluation and several days of an intense on-sight exploration and review involving key personnel – Seco team members and customer employees. At the conclusion, a detailed report sums up areas of focus and provides a road map to greater efficiency. The unique offering is also available in four individual packages.
“The technicians from Seco know our business and our customers… We’re now planning differently and Seco helped us to work with order handling, the flow through the shop, set up times and saving machining time so the machines are not standing still so much” Roger Berggren – Fårbo Mekansika
