The first webinar in our Operational and Manufacturing Excellence limited webinar series in partnership with the American Coatings Association, “Process Optimization & Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE),” was held June 22. ChemQuest director Robert Kramer detailed operational efficiency, yields, margins, and quality that translate to increased EBITDA. Attendees gained an understanding of the development and implementation of key performance indicators (KPIs) for maximum profitability (ROI), as well as methods to implement and sustain improvements in manufacturing operations, processes, SKUs, and production.
Digital strategy has become a common industry catchphrase. In reality, digital strategy and all of its semantic offshoots (i.e., digitization, digitalization, digital engagement, etc.) should serve as implementation tools of your overall business strategy. While proponents have prepared many well-developed visions of a future that digital can enable, it can be difficult to know where to start. To ensure success, fully explore the most effective timing and method(s) for your digital tools to trigger various human interactions. Digital tools should integrate with existing systems and processes such that the entire operation works effectively with minimal involvement of your personnel while achieving maximum customer impact.
Manufacturers have dealt with numerous supply chain disruptions over the past several years. Identifying alternative sources for materials and products used in the manufacturing process is a necessary strategy for any company trying to limit the ramifications of these disruptions on its production capacity and end-product quality. The process can be complicated with adhesives, as adhesive performance varies quite broadly depending on the base chemistry and specific product formulation. Finding the optimal balance of properties for each application is therefore key when sourcing adhesive products.
