Organizations responsible for the production of made-to-order products often find it difficult to monitor operations. This is understandable with so much going on at all times, and several different staff members working on different parts. Keeping track of activities on the factory floor is nearly impossible. Unfortunately, without proper monitoring, problems can occur.
Even Small Mistakes Hurt Made-to-Order Manufacturers
It’s important that managers ensure the assembly of every product meets exact specifications. Improperly assembly hurts an organization’s profitability and damages their reputation. This is especially true for companies creating medical devices, which must be made to fit each individual patient.
People within medical facilities like to talk. If your business consistently produces high quality products, these individuals are likely to share your information with others. Making mistakes can have the opposite effect. Just one customer can destroy your chance of gaining new business within the industry. It’s crucial that managers do all they can to avoid potential problems.
