Nowadays, almost all business organisations strive to perform efficiently with minimal use of resources. The businesses and corporate firms consider only three aspects: the resources, the product and the customers. They focus on an overall ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) of the firm where in the resources are distributed in a planned and uniform manner according to the particular needs of a particular department.
An ERP management information system integrates all the departments of a firm: production, sales, marketing, finance and HR and each department has its own optimised version of the system. With the help of this software each of the departments can share their functions and progress with the rest of the departments, this knowledge helps them in performing better.
There are various other software and techniques that firms use to optimize their performance level. OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is also one such measure to observe and calculate the effectiveness and efficiency of the business departments and equipments. Although it mainly focuses on the production department of the firm, it increases the overall productivity of the organisation by increasing the quality standards, machinery utilisation and output performance. They try to make sure that the machines produce as less defective parts as possible within the most working hours available, with the best run rate. World Class OEE would be around 85%. An average would be the mid sixties. It is however typical to find a company running much lower once they begin recording.
There are various IT companies producing software that will help manufacturing firms optimise their productivity and keep check of their resources and that they are distributed properly among all departments in accordance with their needs. They make the software such that the head of one department can see what the utilisation and productivity is of the other departments and they manage their performance accordingly.
