Lean Corner – Manufacturing Metrics that Matter
Drop image here

We recently came across an article by MESA (Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Enterprise) that looks at the most important metrics for the manufacturing marketplace and provide leaders with tools to understand metrics and improve their relationships with metrics software solutions. 

Based on the most recent metrics analysis, 28 manufacturing metrics were identified as being the most utilized by discrete, process, and hybrid/batch manufacturers. 

Here is an example of one of the 28 metrics:

Customer Experience & Responsiveness Manufacturing Metrics 
• On-Time Delivery to Commit – The percentage of time that manufacturing delivers a completed product on the schedule that was committed to customers. 
• Manufacturing Cycle Time – The speed or time it takes for manufacturing to produce a given product from the time the order is released to production, to finished goods. 
• Time to Make Changeovers – The speed or time it takes to switch a manufacturing line or plant from making one product over to making a different product. 

Be sure to review all 28 metrics and let us know what manufacturing metrics are important to track that are missing from this list?
