Human Error in Manufacturing – How can you protect your SME manufacturing business?
Human error is responsible for more than 80% of failures and defects in Manufacturing businesses.
“Of course I make mistakes. I'm human. If I didn't make mistakes, I'd never learn.”
Making mistakes is part and parcel of being human though… Right? Absolutely! Even though we would like to think we are perfect, we know that this is not the case, and we can’t expect our employees to be completely accurate in everything that they do.
What we can do, though, is to build an environment where we are protecting our businesses by ensuring that we have the correct policies, training, and most importantly - systems in place.
By giving your employees a system that provides guided workflows, automated processes and simple user interfaces, you are allowing your staff to be guided through their daily roles with clear, accurate instructions.
A system that not only allows you to reduce your manufacturing cycle times and maximise your machine usage, but truly allows you to mobilise the workforce, providing an easy to use interface which is empathetic to the end users in the factory setting - using colours, icons and numbers!
