Industry Week reports one of the major drawbacks in the manufacturing sector has a bad reputation for not being “cool” enough when it comes to drawing in younger audiences. This reputation is in part built by older workers not understanding the younger generations and what their needs are, alienating them from potentially joining the ranks.
In addition to trying to appeal to younger workers, manufacturing managers can look at their processes and see what needs to change in order to have a more productive environment. The Small Business Chronicle reports that by assessing the lay of the land and monitoring all the equipment in the warehouse, you can see what’s actually bringing your productivity levels down. This can help you fix the problem before it becomes too cumbersome and drive up your efficiency.
