Manufacturing Performance Metrics: Our Guide
Understanding effective manufacturing metrics is critical for enhancing operational efficiency and driving business success. This blog post delivers a comprehensive overview of essential manufacturing performance measurements, based on a recent empirical study. Explore these must-know metrics and leverage them to boost your manufacturing organization’s productivity and profitability.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness
A measure of how effectively manufacturing equipment is utilized by comparing its actual performance against its maximum potential.
The time it takes to complete the production of one unit, from the start of the manufacturing process to its completion.
First Pass Yield
The percentage of manufactured units that meet quality standards on their first pass through the production process without requiring any rework or repairs.
The percentage of material that is discarded as waste during the production process due to errors, defects, or inefficiencies.
The number of units produced per unit of time, typically measured in units per hour.
The percentage of available production capacity that is being utilized, measuring how effectively a plant is using its resources.
The percentage of orders delivered on or before the promised delivery date, measuring how effectively a manufacturing facility is meeting customer expectations for timely delivery.
The ratio of annual cost of goods sold (COGS) to average inventory value, indicating how frequently inventory is being sold and replaced.
The quantity and value of partially completed products in the manufacturing process, providing insight into production efficiency and potential bottlenecks.
The time during which a machine or equipment is not operating due to maintenance, breakdowns, or other unplanned interruptions, affecting productivity and efficiency.
The time taken to prepare a machine, workstation, or production line for a new production run or changeover, influencing overall production efficiency.
The time it takes to switch from producing one product to another on a production line or machine, with shorter changeover times leading to increased production efficiency.
Labor Efficiency Ratio
The ratio of actual direct labor hours used in production to the standard direct labor hours allocated for the output produced, measuring labor productivity and efficiency.
Return On Assets
The ratio of net income generated by the manufacturing facility to the total value of assets used in the production process, measuring how effectively a company.
Cost Of Poor Quality
The costs incurred due to errors, defects, and other inefficiencies in the manufacturing process, including rework, scrap, warranty costs, and customer returns.
