Manufacturing errors that kill your profit 

You might not even know and the minute seemingly harmless errors in your manufacturing could be significantly hurting your bottom line. Errors that you do not expect or document and fix have the potential to drain all the time, money, and efforts you have invested in the success of your business. This is why it is important that you are well-aware of them. In today’s blog post we are going to help you identify and understand some of the fatal manufacturing errors that can sabotage your business if not counted and fixed. 

Manual error 

These are some of the most common errors that often go unnoticed. They are only surfaced when the bottom line is affected and numbers don’t match. While robust training can minimize the possibility of human errors, they are unavoidable. This is why you need a cloud ERP like Acumatica to eliminate any possibility of human error. The mundane tasks will be automated. There will be no room for errors. Since with a cloud ERP, you will have all the information in one place. You will be able to automate the processes and tasks that are prone to errors.   

Portion Error 

Wrong measurements can result in machine breakdown and ultimately stop production. To help determine the right portion size, you can implement signs and checklists that can be used in various equipment along the production line. How signs will help? They will help employees understand how the equipment should be operated. Another effective method that can help your employees gain a better understanding of the portion size is creating and maintaining a checklist. Placed along the production line, it can help employees know what should be done and how.  

Production Error 

Production error could be a result of any minute thing like a late employee, improper work, or a breakdown in the system. But they have the potential to significantly hurt your business. This is why it is important to have a robust backup plan which you can implement in case of production failures. To keep the production moving, you need a plan that is aligned with your business goal. But that is not all, you need to consistently review and update these plans to ensure your production sails smoothly.  

Equipment error 

Equipment sometimes fails and can be disastrous to the manufacturing process. What businesses need to understand is that every piece of equipment has its capacity limit and it should not be used beyond that. Thus to ensure that this doesn’t happen in your business. Make sure you periodically review the equipment and parts. Furthermore, it is also important to maintain this equipment properly so that they can work to their full capacity.  

Errors and mistakes can happen anytime in the business and take a toll on all your handwork. Thus this is why it is important to stay cautious and implement such processes that can ensure there is no room for error. Implementing cloud ERP Acumatica can be one such smart decision your business can trust. This connected business solution will boost your productivity with its integrated system and personalized dashboard.
