Best Practices for Improving Production Line Efficiency

Becoming eco-friendly and fiscally responsible are two achievable objectives. Learn how Air Power USA helps you prioritize high performance, energy preservation, and cost efficiency.

The Importance Of Production Line Efficiency

A “well-oiled” production line is essential to batch-driven processes. While accuracy and speed are two of the many factors that contribute to high productivity, efficiency is also a key player. Once your crew settles into a comfortable groove in their everyday operations, it encourages optimum performance, which leads to energy preservation—no compromise necessary.

Energy conservation in factories may seem close to impossible, since manufacturing and industrial facilities are some of the largest energy consumers in America. However, there are solutions that can simultaneously improve production time, conserve energy, and save money. It all starts with the efficiency of your production line.

How To Improve Production Line Efficiency

It’s important that your company sets goals and proactively works to achieve them. If one of your objectives is to improve the efficiency of your production line, try implementing these steps:

  • Schedule Preventative Maintenance: Intercept small problems before they become bigger issues by identifying and rectifying them early on.
  • Stay on Schedule: When your production line isn’t in sync, it decreases productivity. By tracking time and strategically coordinating the steps within a procedure, you minimize downtime and eliminate duplicate efforts.
  • Invest in Modern Software: The aptitude of your software plays a big role in your plant’s efficiency. Up-to-date tech enhances performance, lowers labor costs, and creates a streamlined process.
  • Communicate: The engineering and manufacturing department should always be on the same page. It’s helpful for engineers to participate in the manufacturing process. They can shadow and take notes from line workers, which brings awareness to issues and concerns, so they can be addressed.
  • Monitor Mechanisms of Equipment: Take note of the way your equipment operates from the time it’s installed. Ensure the machines are getting enough water and electricity. If there’s a change in the electrical or water supply at your facility, make sure the limitations don’t affect your equipment’s performance or lifespan.

Does your company need help with industrial energy reduction? Let’s work together.


Three Steps to Success

At Air Power USA our team is dedicated to helping you succeed at becoming eco-friendly and efficient. Our objectives are to minimize energy usage, save you money, and eliminate stress.

First, we conduct an energy analysis. An initial walkthrough of your facility gives us insight into what utility incentives your facility may be eligible for. Not only does this enable us to identify where there’s room for improvement, but it also helps narrow down possible funding opportunities.

Next, we offer consultation services. A great plan without implementation is just valuable time wasted. We put your plans into action by creating a list of quotes and contractors you’ll need for your improvement projects.

Finally, the hard work pays off. There are multiple programs developed by the federal government that support energy conservation. We’ll help you take advantage of the incentive initiatives you’re eligible for.
