Metrics are everywhere in manufacturing organizations, from accounting to sales and quality to production. Manufacturing is all about precision and quality. Parts are made to exact dimensional specifications and measured against fastidious engineering standards. Managing manufacturing businesses and operational processes requires the same attention to detail to boost sales, contain costs, improve efficiency, and grow profits. Most manufacturers pay careful attention to metrics to drive daily decisions, improve quality, reduce risk, and guide operational excellence throughout their organizations.
However, executives often struggle to make sense of the information due to data issues, lack of strategic vision, missing benchmarks, and a focus on lagging indicators. Further, departmental metrics do not always align with corporate goals, and manufacturing leaders experience “paralysis by analysis” with too many metrics. Consider that there are thousands of financial, sales, manufacturing, and operational metrics that manufacturers develop and monitor to drive improvements throughout every aspect of their business.
