Reduce errors & downtime in manufacturing.

Human errors in manufacturing usually involve some kind of miscommunication or inability to follow procedures. Incorrect or lacking knowledge can cause safety risks, errors, downtime, and product defects. To avoid this, modern companies support their workforce in finding the most efficient way of working.

What causes errors & downtime?

  1. Unclear procedures and lacking knowledge. Procedures are an established way of performing a task. Without standard procedures, the risk of deviation and errors is very high.

  2. Apathetic attitude. Team members who perceive that their work isn’t important and meaningful often feel discouraged - and perform poorly with more errors.

  3. Insufficient training. Companies shouldn’t solely depend on only training new recruits. The majority of information gained in traditional onboarding and training is often very inefficient and quickly forgotten.

  4. Controlling supervision and management. Distrust, control, and micro-management are all human behaviors that can deteriorate collaboration and team spirit.

We used to have paper work instructions here in the assembly department - they were not easy to use and maintain. With SwipeGuide, we make fewer mistakes and it’s easy to adapt our instructions.

Increasing operational efficiency.

Organizational efficiency is driven by frontline teams on the shop floor and in the field. What can companies do to motivate them to achieve first-time-right?


 

Easy access to instructions.

Easily accessible instructions that can be used on any device improve on-time performance and reduce delays.

Easy access

Continuously develop.

On-the-job skills development should be accessible with instructions, SOPs, OPLs, and checklists.

Continuously develop

Develop leadership skills.

Factory supervisors should be trained on leadership skills so they’re able to motivate frontline teams (not control them) to achieve goals.

Develop

Involve to motivate.

Frontline teams should be involved in the creation of processes to engage them in their jobs and boost day-to-day performance.

Crowdsource

Design processes for humans.

Make sure that your systems are designed and equipped primarily for humans. Machines are important, but happy humans are the key to success.

Empowering the frontline.

Errors and inefficiency can be reduced dramatically when empowering frontline teams with the right digital tools to share their knowledge. This transformation bears huge potential in both cost savings and improved work conditions:

  • Reduce errors and downtime.
  • Reduce safety risks and frustration.
  • Increase First-Time-Right rates.


SwipeGuide provides operational knowledge at the moment of need. These features help reduce errors and downtime: 

It takes more than a few engineers and managers to make a significant impact. It takes an entire workforce for real continuous improvement to be implemented and sustained.
