High Pressure and Thinner Margins Lead Manufacturers to Poor Communication


Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/26/2015 -- Like it or not, the global economy brought higher pressure and thinner margins right to your doorstep. Nobody feels this as keenly as the production managers and shop foreman in the small manufacturing operation. These key individuals must constantly pace the shop floor to eyeball the process and look for problems, shepherding workflow and throughput through a mix of first-person viewpoint, second-hand information, and a variety of tracking systems. These methods can include disconnected spreadsheets, phone calls, emails, face-to-face conversations, and the good old scheduling whiteboard, which is frantically updated as demands and challenges change. In the midst of all this chaos manufacturing leaders are failing to communicate with shop floor employees.

PDP Solutions is quickly becoming the preferred third party vendor for manufacturers outsourcing the employee communications function.
