Mechanical Engineering Solutions For Problems

Mechanical Engineering Solutions | TOC

In the mechanical engineering solutions industry, people, processes and machines work ideally together to produce the best possible product. For a good collaboration, a flawless supply chain and the smooth, effective production of a consistently high-quality product, managers need reliable company. And let me tell you.. it’s no easy task. Because a business rarely runs smoothly. Chronic problems are temporarily patched rather than solved sustainably. Unexpected, new difficulties cause delays or production stoppages while it’s time to locate and fix the problem.

In our long-standing collaboration with medium-sized companies from this area, we have identified 5 key challenges worldwide that companies are often faced with

Five Problems in the Mechanical Engineering Industry

Bug Fix

A small problem quickly turns into a major disaster through delayed action. Disruptive and hazardous events can be rectified immediately by the management. Unwanted delivery shortages, backlogs, machine and plant failures, missing spare parts, insufficient data and lack of communication affect the operation sustainably. Small things like the tire failure of a forklift can lead to major disturbances under certain circumstances: When the tire is not repaired, the forklift fails, the raw material supply of the machines is interrupted, and production slows down.

Low Data Visibility

Offline stored and inaccessible data is invisible and useless. Static and self-contained systems keep business-critical data out of the eyes of those who need it most. The ability to monitor processes, avoid problems and inform about occurring disturbances is reduced. Invisible data silos can be avoided for this reason. For a smooth mechanical engineering operation, project managers need time to obtain accurate and visible data from various sources.

Lack of communication

A common obstacle in production is a lack of communication within the production or between individual departments. In many cases, systems are not designed to communicate with each other. The resulting lack of transparency is due to a lack of connectivity of the systems. Without a real-time connection to CRM, ERP, SCM and PLM systems, data is not effectively integrated. The consequences are longer machine downtimes, failures in the supply chain and missed deadlines.

What is CRM?

CRM is the acronym used for Customer Relationship Management and refers to the set of practices, business strategies and technologies focused on customer relations.

What is SCM ?

Supply Chain Management is the management of the entire production flow of a good or service, from raw components to delivery of the final product to the consumer.

What is PLM ?

Product lifecycle management (PLM) is the process of a product as it moves through the typical stages of its product life: development and introduction, growth, maturity/stability, and decline.

Lack of Control

Data in inaccessible data silos, self-running systems, loss of control of applications, a lack of overview and reactive decision-making lead to a negative operating experience. Remedy provides a seamless system landscape. Related applications and IT systems provide complete transparency of available information from all areas of manufacturing and individual departments. Decision-makers retain control over their operations. An integrated system landscape supports them in implementing strategic decisions. This includes gradually streamlining operations, optimising management and overall plant efficiency), as well as reducing costs and downtime.

Little Usable information

Decision-makers lack the time to deal with the collection and interpretation of data from various sources. You need information that is easily accessible and unambiguous. On a data basis, a better control over events and a solid basis for long-term management is feasible.
