The ultimate goal of improving operational efficiency is to deliver goods to customers in the most cost-effective and timely manner, without sacrificing quality in any way.
A variety of strategies and techniques can be used to achieve this, but fundamentally, they’re all about identifying and eliminating waste in the form of time, material or labour.
At Tamperguard, we believe we’ve found a way to instantly improve your operational efficiency.
The core principle is surprisingly simple: Have you ever thought of using longer rolls of security tape to improve your machine uptime?
Let’s walk through a hypothetical scenario:
- Your security tape comes in 1,000– meter flat rolls.
- It takes 15 minutes to change each finished roll on your converting machine.
- You change rolls 10 times per shift.
- You run two shifts per day.
- You produce 5 days per week.
Your estimated production downtime would be:
10 shifts/week x 10 changes/shift x 15 min/change = 25 hours/week
Now, imagine if you were to use a 2,000– meter roll instead of a 1,000– meter roll. You would produce twice as many security bags before changing a roll, meaning you would essentially save 12.5 hours of production downtime per week.
This is just one cost reduction strategy to help boost your operational efficiency, but notice that this solution doesn’t require a massive investment in new machinery. It also provides an immediate R.O.I.
