Wildfires didn't keep this cow from grazing on the grass around it, but it apparently did hinder manufacturing around it. The point is; your manufacturing operation can be strongly impacted in the most unusual ways. That's why its so important to be prepared with a strong foundation of best practices and solid systems. That way, when adversity strikes you are better prepared to adapt and recover from business disruptions.

It's hard enough to operate a business when everything is going right, but when labor shortages, supply-chain interruptions, and raw goods price fluctuations are factored in, it can become a crisis. Your plant needs to be as productive, efficient, and flexible as possible to respond to changing demands.

  1. Productivity - more pieces per day with the least required labor.
