Overheads can be a silent killer when it comes to the efficiency of a manufacturing business.
It has been estimated that 30-40% of typical manufacturing costs are hidden in administration. Up to three-quarters of the time involved from sales order receipt to actual item delivery can be lost in administration and process delays.
Most manufacturers pride themselves on having a lean manufacturing process and pay constant attention to optimising and improving it. What about the administration side of your manufacturing business, given its considerable impact on your bottom line?
There are potentially significant gains to be made by turning your attention to overhead. Can you make your administration leaner, and translate that into increased margin, decreased office delays, improved competitiveness and customer service?
Find out more at the factory tour and interactive seminar Endeavour are running in conjunction with The Manufacturers’ Network.
