Manufacturing planning quickly falls through the cracks in everyday work, easily resulting in misunderstandings and duplication of work. That's too bad, because usually a lot can be easily improved with planning, with the resulting greater gains.
"Even though we spend so much time planning, there are
always questions and misunderstandings in project implementation."
As a MES consultant, I’ve been confronted with these and similar situations for many years. I'd therefore like to take this opportunity to list some common mistakes in manufacturing planning and uncover the causes of lost time. Learn from the mistakes of others. Based on our experience, many of them can be easily avoided, as long as it's clear how to approach them. In the blog article, you can read where to find the time-wasters or download our information sheet with a list of the most common errors.
Experience isn’t enough
Even experienced manufacturing planners are pushed to their limits if they have to constantly monitor all interfaces and dependencies.
