Your production engineer questions answered

  • Q: How does Gemba Lean help manage knowledge retention due to high staff turnover?

    A: Within Gemba Lean there is a self-service library that may include information about processes, procedures and ‘how to’ guides to get the most out of the software and your manufacturing machines.

    This library will help new starters, and even seasoned staff, find solutions to problems, therefore improving their knowledge and solving issues quicker.

    The log book can also be used as a means of communication among different departments and shifts within a manufacturing facility. Your workers can review the log book to understand what happened during previous shifts and what tasks need to be completed during their own time, such as fixes or maintenance.

  • Q: How does Gemba Lean help me trust my data?

    A: Dynamic reporting tools enable users to dive deep into production data to identify losses, inefficiencies, or areas where improvements can be made. This can involve examining various data points, timeframes, or specific metrics to understand the root causes of losses.

    From personal reports, to global reports, you will have access to a range of insights with customisable filters, to help you get the most out of your analysis and make data-driven decisions confidently.

  • Q: How does Gemba Lean help me make informed data-driven decisions?

    A: The OEE Dashboard offers a clear and comprehensive view of production processes. It provides data on equipment performance, production rates, and quality metrics. This visibility allows production engineers and operators to monitor operations effectively, and make decisions from there.

    The Gemba Lean dashboard presents key performance indicators (KPIs) related to OEE, including availability, performance, and quality metrics. These KPIs empower you, as the decision-maker, to make data-driven choices to improve production efficiency and quality.

  • Q: How does Gemba Lean ensure product quality is always high?

    A: The Gemba Lean Dashboard highlights bottlenecks and inefficiencies in the production line. This could include machines that are underperforming. Identifying these issues promptly is essential for minimising downtime and maximising output.

  • Q: How does Gemba Lean minimise downtime and unplanned stoppages?

    A: Armed with data, you as the production manager will have visibility of the recurring issues that are impacting performance and be able to prioritise maintenance activities focused on minimising downtime and improving productivity.
