In order to speed up a production line, the manufacturing processes themselves can usually be improved in order to increase the overall efficiency of the line. However, there are some instances where improving a single process doesn’t have an over-arching effect on the rest of the systems.
When attempting to improve a manufacturing process, it’s important to understand how it relates to the entire production line. For example, a packaging system could be improved to speed up a production line, in theory. However when analysing the system it may very well be the case that an improved packaging system might not actually speed up the production line, even if the stats say otherwise.
Once a certain process is determined as something that once improved can help the entire production line, it can then be worked on. This will ultimately lead to understanding whether or not it can be optimised, and how to go about doing so.
