Over the past 12 months, Endurance has introduced a WIP tracking system throughout its production process.
This allows, the company said, for increased transparency across the individual production stages; with each door tracked, activities recorded, and the location of the door slab and frame traceable prior to their combination at the hanging station.
The doors are scanned into a specific slot in a despatch rack to ensure they can be picked up easily by a loading team. This step follows the inspection and wrapping stages. The new WIP tracking system couples with Endurance’s new investment into three Iveco Eurocargo lorries.
This new addition aims to reduce lost orders and delays, and Endurance knows what stage every item is at in the production facility.
The updates are automatically included in the reports that are available for Endurance production and sales teams. The WIP tracking system offers a live feed to help these teams make decisions based on the status of each phase of the production process.
This tracking tool also offers data capture technology which helps to streamline operations, identify training opportunities, improve productivity, efficiency and quality control.
“Standing as a comprehensive monitoring and tracking tool, the WIP system has proven itself to be an effective resource for improving efficiency and service across the board,” Endurance said.
