Are you interested in more ways to improve your productivity at work? Productivity in an industrial context is output of an aspect of production per unit of input. It is a method used to measure the quantity of output of worker, machine, or an entire national economy in the making of good, services, or commodities to produce income. Productivity is a very important measure in manufacturing operations, besides turnover and profit. Improving productivity is at the top of nearly every manufacturer's list but making it happen can be a challenge. It provides insight into the efficiency and effectiveness of your operations. Improving productivity will have a positive impact on the direct costs of your products and the competitiveness of the organization as the same output is produced with fewer resources (input) or more output with the current input. Productivity is greatly impacted by the availability of the right tools and resources to do the job effectively. The book gives a case study of a manufacturing shop from a medium scale industry.
