The 3 Main Indicators for Qualifying a Process for Automation
There are plenty of processes in your factory that are running at any given moment. Material and goods are moving around your facility, as your team members coordinate the dance of your operation. Sometimes, these processes are being done in vain, as they’re draining productivity for very little output, and sometimes these processes are absolutely critical. But with so many processes happening at one time, how do you decide which is worth automating?
There are a few key indicators that will help you qualify whether a process should be converted from manual to automated. The first is the complexity of the process. If your team members are spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to complete a task, or if there are a lot of steps involved, it might be time to look into automating the process.
Another key indicator is the number of people involved in a process. If several team members are needed to complete a task, it might be easier and more efficient to automate the process. This way, your team members can be freed up to work on other tasks.
Finally, you should also consider how often, or the frequency in which a process is performed. If a process is performed several times a day or week, it might be worth automating in order to improve efficiency and productivity.
If you’re considering automating one or more processes in your factory, keep these key indicators in mind. Automating complex or time-consuming processes can free up your team members to work on other tasks, and can improve the efficiency of your operation as a whole.
