Every company has to manage capital costs, but it can be a very tricky business. You want your operations to run as smoothly as possible of course, but more precision and efficiency usually means higher costs. What can you do about these costs, then? Continue reading to find out! You can’t increase your production capacity until [...]
Welcome to E2M’s Unlock the Gridlock series! Bottlenecks are never fun, so wouldn’t it be great to head them off at the pass? You can start learning how to do just that below! Unlock the Gridlock Clearing bottlenecks at the end of the line. Traffic jams can happen too easily at the end of your [...]
We’ve finally reached the last part of the To Buffer or Not to Buffer series! We hope you’ve enjoyed it so far, and today is the grand finale. We’ll be covering the advantages of OEE and simulations in buffering decisions and rounding out our information and findings on buffering in general. Our OEE sheet analysis and FlowSim [...]
Today we’ll continue talking about the wonders of FlowSim! You can turn a very complex decision into a simple, obvious choice with this tool, so it’s imminently useful. It also helps you maximize efficiency. Read on to learn more. By changing such variables as the rate of production, size and placement of buffer, and length [...]
Simulation can increase your decision confidence. It’s impossible to know the future until it becomes the present, but wouldn’t it be nice to know that you’re at least heading in the right direction? More advanced models can increase accuracy even further. The following excerpt discusses E2M‘s very useful (and exclusive) FlowSim models. Simulation can increase confidence in [...]
