Productivity can be loosely defined as managing the application of people, equipment and processes to achieve the optimum output. Output could refer to production, quality, maintenance, safety, ergonomics etc.
At the plant level, Larvik’s simulations analyze throughput, utilization, inventory and lead time (click here to learn more about our simulation services). At the micro level, i.e. at the individual station or process, we analyze the process in detail to improve part handling, storage and ergonomics.
Activities not directly related to production and logistics can also lead to high overhead costs. Examples of such activities are data collection and data entry. While they consume valuable man-hours, their impact is not reflected in standard KPIs such as throughput and utilization.
