Optimize for Continued Improvement

Aug 21, 2014

Optimization of your robotic system will help ensure that your production line will run continuously. It is important to ensure that robot systems receive regular maintenance, repair, and attention. This will ensure that your robot will last a long time and be able to continually boost your productivity.


Project man­agers have a mantra of con­tin­u­al improve­ment in order to meet com­pa­ny objec­tives. To be a suc­cess­ful part of an orga­ni­za­tion, these lead­ers of the work force need to keep employ­ees moti­vat­ed while meet­ing the demands of the cus­tomers the busi­ness serves. In an indus­tri­al envi­ron­ment, much of the suc­cess of the busi­ness depends on the abil­i­ty to meet orders for the prod­ucts they cre­ate. In order to pro­vide assis­tance to the human work­ers, the adop­tion of a robot­ic sys­tem with­in the fac­to­ry can mean the dif­fer­ence between meet­ing tight sched­ules and miss­ing dead­lines. Incor­po­rat­ing auto­mat­ed sys­tems with­in this envi­ron­ment will improve the com­pa­ny’s prof­it margin.

As a man­ag­er of a project, the indi­vid­ual needs to be aware of the entire work­flow asso­ci­at­ed with the cre­ation of the device the com­pa­ny pro­duces. From mak­ing sure that an ade­quate sup­ply of mate­ri­als is avail­able to sched­ul­ing appro­pri­ate lev­els of employ­ees to com­plete the work, this per­son over­sees the entire process. Work­ing with the cus­tomer to set expec­ta­tions helps to pre­vent unex­pect­ed delays. When deal­ing with a robot­ic sys­tem with­in the fac­to­ry, the head of the work order can keep a close eye on where the process the order is and what may risk putting the project behind schedule.

Improve­ment ini­tia­tives with­in a fac­to­ry envi­ron­ment typ­i­cal­ly focus on employ­ees and work tech­niques. One area that man­agers tend not to mon­i­tor as close­ly is the effi­cien­cy of the robot­ic sys­tem in place. While efforts are in place to ensure that these robots receive reg­u­lar main­te­nance and repair, the leader of the project can find areas of improve­ment by review­ing the use of robot­ics in the man­u­fac­tur­ing process. Under­stand­ing how long it takes for the auto­mat­ed sys­tem to com­plete its por­tion of assem­bly will allow mod­i­fi­ca­tions to be made. Invest­ment in new indus­tri­al robots or increas­ing oper­at­ing hours can sig­nif­i­cant­ly impact the abil­i­ty to meet a timeline.
