Adding Manufacturing Data covers the three most essential occurrences of a shift, production, reject, and downtime. You can find the steps and video illustrations of adding data to these categories by clicking on the following links:
What is Production?
Production refers to the actual (good) yield in a shift manufacturing activity.
Production is the process of creating goods and services through various activities such as manufacturing, construction, agriculture, or mining. It involves transforming raw materials into finished products or providing intangible services that satisfy consumer needs and wants. The production process may involve designing, planning, sourcing raw materials, assembling, testing, packaging, and distributing products to customers.
What is Reject?
Reject refers to the manufactured output which didn't pass the quality standards at the first time.
Rejects can occur during any stage of the manufacturing process, from raw materials to finished products.
Rejects may be due to a variety of reasons, including defects in materials, problems with machinery, or human error.
Rejects can be costly for manufacturers, as they may need to be reworked or scrapped entirely, resulting in wasted time and resources.
What is Downtime?
Downtime refers to any substantial planned or unplanned stops that bring regular production activities to a halt for any duration.
Downtime can occur due to various reasons such as equipment failure, power outages, software failures, network outages, maintenance and repairs, system upgrades, or natural disasters. Downtime can have a significant impact on business operations, leading to lost productivity, decreased revenue, dissatisfied customers, and damaged reputation.
