tracking manufacturing downtime








perhaps the only trait which separates humans

Perhaps the only trait which

separates humans with machines is

the time one takes to recover from

the strain, the time one takes to

cool down and then quickly bounce

back to being the best. This is where

machines are probably different, as

when any manufacturing process is

halted rather abruptly, for instance,

to cater to a motor failure, more

often than not it accrues downtime.

as is generally the case this downtime

As is generally the case, this downtime

is necessitated due to equipment

failure, manufacturing downtime can

also happen when an unplanned event

takes precedence and forces the

manufacturing process to stop.

manufacturing and machine downtime




Manufacturing downtime is basically any fault which has a

snowballing effect on the entire manufacturing process,

perhaps the most dreaded scenario in any workshop or


Hence, now encapsulating all the theories into one

principal basic definition: Downtime events are unplanned

stops which warrant a reason because they are long

enough to stall the entire manufacturing process.

However, there are other scenarios too, when a planned

stop is carried out owing to any pre-scheduled assignment

or if and when the tools have to be changed and

maintenance issues take precedence. Given below are

some of the ways to reduce machine downtime in a

manufacturing unit:

although the operators of different machines

Although the operators of different machines might well

be aware of the exact reason for the lack of productivity,

if there is a screen or a small projector assembled to the

machine might well reflect the exact drop in production


The IT sector should always be included to seek out

solutions especially in the day and age of breached

firewalls and ransomware which leads to compromised

security structure

Apart from the aforementioned ways, up-gradation of the

WiFi system, all the servers should be monitored and any

lapsed or outdated network structure should be upgraded.

big data is no longer just a concept companies

Big data is no longer just a concept,

companies should actually

acknowledge its importance, get their

heads together and adopt this in

cohesion across all the different

platforms. Having said this, it is

imperative that IT and operations, the

two critical departments should always

work together and keep a close eye on

the data which keeps fluctuating.

digital innovation is like the proverbial sunset

Digital innovation is like the proverbial

sunset, it is just so certain in the current

context. Hence, companies should

invest more in manpower so that an

end-to-end feedback mechanism is

established. The cumulative efforts of

all the departments can never be

undermined even here when technology

is galloping along.

For any downtime, the fault is generally

not a very big issue at the inception

and if it is detected right when it is

initiated the problem can be nipped in

the bud.

communication between the staff

Communication between the staff and

the management is another proven tool

to reduce the machine downtime. By

establishing a channel with the staff, in

many ways the management holds them

accountable which in order makes the

workforce feel a part of the team and

hence they will be more vigilant to any

wear and tear.

by holding regular staff evaluations will also

By holding regular staff evaluations will also help the

management to identify assets and liabilities which will

help them entrust more responsibilities on people who are

adept at handling crises.

Conducting regular manufacturing equipment maintenance

and replacing the faulty ones at regular intervals is another

way of preventing any long term hazards. This will also help

in identifying faulty equipments which slows down the entire

manufacturing process.

Training the existing workforce, especially the people who

handle the plant and preparing a dossier which should

then be strictly followed at all times.

manufacturing and machine efficiency

Manufacturing and machine efficiency

can be greatly improved by not only

tracking but also identifying the reason

for the snags. However before we look

at curing any particular impediment, it is

imperative we are in tune with the

reason behind the stalled work. These

basic identifications will help in

determining the extent of stoppages, or

the different bottlenecks.
