Title: How to Improve Efficiency in 3 Key Toolroom Areas


Efficiency gains in a toolroom are more than just fancy new equipment and software. Foundational building blocks within an organization set the stage to drive efficiency and productivity. This session shares how a tool shop can make improvements with tool design, equipment, and work in process.

  1. Early involvement with a cross-functional team in tool design will increase overall shop efficiency by driving machining processes, fit and assembly, and maintenance-friendly tools.
  2. Understanding your team's skills and machine capabilities will drive shop floor efficiency and allow the shop to be more flexible to process more work through current assets.
  3. Understanding the work priority and shop capacity using current business systems will help identify sales gaps and help identify opportunities for additional capacity.
