When you agree to produce a job, you promise your customer three things: quantity, quality and timeliness. To keep those promises, your shop needs to be ready to perform.
Promise what you can deliver.
Either improve your planning capabilities or enhance your shop with new knowledge and equipment.
Estimate required resources realistically, including time, materials and readiness.
Avoid “we’ll figure it out later” promises that you’re not certain you can keep.
To translate your promise into action, identify how you’ll fulfill the order: steps, processes, equipment and resources.
Analyze each job carefully to determine what it requires.
Manage your in-house resources and capabilities to create the ideal process for job production, one you can implement cohesively.
Ensure that you’re really ready to go, and that you understand any potential for setbacks in the process you formulate.
Keep your equipment in top shape with routine and scheduled maintenance.
Time to cut parts – and monitor the process to manage problems so your output matches what you promised to deliver.
Manage your processes to produce successful results.
Predict and avoid unprofitable emergencies.
Check your process to ensure that everything’s running correctly.
Manage quality control to avoid scrap and waste.
Once you identify what you need for a job, find and prepare your resources.
