Your production manager questions answered

  • Q: How does Gemba Lean help me meet my goals and deadlines?

    A: OEE Reporting allows companies to set benchmarks based on historical performance. These benchmarks serve as performance targets for equipment and processes. By comparing current performance to established benchmarks, this means your team can gauge their progress and identify areas that require further attention.

  • 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, such as fixes or maintenance.

  • 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 machine or equipment performance, production rates, and quality metrics. This visibility allows production managers 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.

  • Q: How does Gemba Lean combat miscommunication across departments?

    A: Firstly, Gemba Lean conveniently accommodates multiple teams, to reduce miscommunication and confusion.

    Alongside this, the Action Tracker is designed to monitor and track individual actions, tasks, or activities. It helps ensure that each task associated with a project or production issue is accounted for and managed effectively, eliminating the need for paperwork.
