Manufacturing Execution Systems

Posted by David Crowley on Nov 5, 2019 8:19:00 AM

Regardless where they're located, manufacturing plants and factories across North America share something in common: manufacturing headaches.

The labor shortage is a big one. Finding great people and retaining those same great people is becoming more of a challenge. Productivity is increasing and people are not staying with companies for many years, as the job market has become very competitive. Effectively managing the day to day operations becomes more of a challenge. Ops managers are throwing money at training resources to only have an employee move out of the organization.
