The Future of Production: Top 25 KPIs to Track for Efficiency and Quality

KPIs production

Production KPIs matter now more than ever as businesses recover from the shocks brought about by the pandemic. When the global crisis slowed down production processes, companies were forced to make difficult strategic decisions.

Market shifts, movement restrictions, and material scarcities stemming from supply chain disruptions have affected several areas of the production process.

For instance, chemical manufacturers worldwide had to trim down capital and operational expenditure and shrink their operations to 40-60 percent capacity. This is due to insufficient manpower, dwindling demand, and inadequate raw material supplies, according to the data published in Manufacturing Tomorrow.

To meet contractual obligations and increase productivity, companies are encouraged to rethink their processes, explore new opportunities, and adapt to trends.

Digital connectivity is among the trends that will dominate industries as the 5G coverage worldwide continues to expand. Sustainability is also seen as a critical factor that will shape business operations and investments. The global market for green building materials is expected to grow from US$238 billion in the year 2020 to US$425.4 Billion by 2027.

Developing a new production strategy

However, the future of production is not just about the what and the why but also the how.

The potential of innovative technologies and business models can be further realized if their application is based on data-backed decisions. Such decisions help companies minimize risks, carry out relevant strategic plans, and see what works and what doesn’t.

With this, decision makers and managers should pay attention to their production KPIs, which aim to guarantee the quality of the production process, from efficiency to productivity as well as the quantity and quality of output.

The KPI Institute has released “The Top 25 Production KPIs – 2020 Extended Edition” to provide companies an international perspective on the most popular production KPIs. It is designed for organizations and professionals who want to measure the components that contribute to the successful implementation of a production strategy.

With over 100 pages, the report presents the most viewed KPIs based on the information gathered from smartKPIs.com, a database of over 20,000 documented KPIs.

You can download the “The Top 25 Production KPIs – 2020 Extended Edition” to access the profile of each KPI and learn its potential impact on your production strategy. You will also find exclusive in practice recommendations and best practices for KPI selection and documentation.
