Factory and manufacturing performance, redefined
Prior to installing the MESTEC factory management system, we reckoned that unrecovered labour costs amounted to £10-15,000 per month and was a problem that had been growing progressively as the business grew. Today GTK is entirely free of the unrecovered labour burden and, as we continue to gain efficiencies using the data MESTEC provides, we’re targeting a third year of real term cost reductions to drive our competitiveness in the market.
Each month, we get back twenty times the cost of our monthly MESTEC subscription in tangible financial value—which is impressive, and significantly exceeded our expectations.
MESTEC gave us the ability to link people to work centres. Which not only gave us the ability to ensure that the people performing tasks were appropriately qualified and ‘current’, but also gave us log-on and log-off times, from which we could capture manufacturing cost and efficiency metrics.
Without doubt, we can demonstrate very real savings. From capturing and reporting ‘as-built’ data, to faster cycle times and improved material flow, we’re a business today that runs far more efficiently, thanks to MESTEC.
