Waste reduction

The introduction of  COMPASS, and, in particular, of the MES module for shop-floor data collection and production control, allows to accurately measure performances (KPI) for all production resources.

Measurements should never be an end in themselves, but, in accordance with the principle to which "no improvement can be made if no measurements are taken", the introduction of an MES system is only the initial pre-requisite for the implementation of a production system overall performance improvement plan.

The availability of accurate, objective and prompt data - regarding for example scraps, downtime, materials usage, etc. - allows to identify inefficiencies in machine and/or workforce operation and/or use of materials and provides the basis for the definition of improvement actions and avoid and/or reduce waste.
