For Roll Forming and Building Material Manufacturers, understanding and analyzing true costs isn’t always easy—especially for those using legacy systems. In order to gain visibility into operations, tracking the four pillars of cost isn’t just a competitive differentiator—it’s vital to driving your business forward.
Most companies today don’t have a true manufacturing solution in place to track materials. With multiple variables impacting the cost of materials and labor, not being able to capture and measure data gives managers a skewed view so they can’t confidently answer critical questions.
Organizations spend a lot of time and resources hiring people who care about their quality of work. However, if you don’t have the tools in place to help them reach their full potential, your production can suffer. Collecting data helps you identify top performers’ practices so you can improve productivity.
Allocation of overhead costs can be a deal breaker in the profit or loss of a job as well as in the line of business. If your company isn’t tracking the inputs and outputs throughout the process, there will likely be errors in costs and schedules.
Few Roll Forming and Building Material Manufacturers have the equipment in place to handle every aspect of every order, so they enlist the help of outside processors to deliver services. However, in doing so it makes it hard to maintain visibility inside and outside of your facility.
