processes may be well hidden, but
they are large nonetheless. One
reason it is difficult to put an accurate value on this problem is we
often fail to see the full range of effects that ripple through the entire
company. It is not simply the value
of the wasted minutes, but the total
impact of that inefficient process.
Looking only at the cost per
unit of time, data re-entry seems
like a small problem. But what if
those minutes were added to one
person’s workload? Think about all
of the places where these disconnections add time to processes.
Document management is one
more integration tool that also
reduces many of these steps, and
going paperless helps when there
are change orders and revisions.
Those added minutes become
very costly waste in the critical path
to the ship date. If your company
normally has abundant lead-time
with every order, maybe this is not
a big deal. But for most manufacturers, lead time is precious.
I have often heard managers tell
me that, although it would be great
to have everything fully integrated,
their current engineering/manu-facturing system does the most critical stuff. So while achieving 70%
process integration is good enough
for now, what would it be worth to
get closer to 100%?
