Manufacturing Leaders Number 1 Weakness Poor Communication


Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/03/2015 -- All manufacturing leaders each have strengths and weaknesses. The greatest strength often rests in the understanding of how production works, product is engineered, and assembled. Communication is often the great weakness of many manufacturing leaders and it comes with a high a price as a defective product. Operations leaders at small- and mid-sized manufacturing companies have no shortage of stress. Much of the burden of bringing in jobs on-time and on-budget falls on C-level executives, which explains the thirst for visibility and hawkish attention to detail regarding everything on the shop floor.

Technology providers offer many solutions to remedy this stress —fixes to the things that give headaches, slow down teams and endanger profitability. Ultimately the technology must include techniques to help leaders communicate effectively with the workforce. There are ways to take the guess work out of sharing communication easily, turning manufacturers' pain points into strengths.
