MRO Services For Operations

Meet Rose.
Operations Manager for an Automotive components manufacturer.

  • 12 years of experience in production operations.
  • Challenged to balance production costs against the near impossible task of finding and keeping qualified staff.
  • Worried about the concentration of risk, having nearly 80% of their business tied up with only one of the big three automobile manufacturers.
  • Due to the ever-changing needs of the market and the need to regularly shut down to maintain the plants’ aging production assets, Rose struggles to meet production planning goals and quality control metrics.

What Rose Needs.

  • Increased Overall Equipment Effectiveness. She wants to get her plants as close as she can to 100% Quality, 100% Performance, and 100% Availability during planned production time.
  • Improved throughput. She needs her process running as fast as possible when it is running, so she can meet demand and stay ahead of the competition.
  • Improved production reliability. She needs the quality of her production line to have zero defects in the parts it produces and the parts it uses.

SDI at Work

Data standardization is part of Google’s new initiative to help people find relevant datasets.  With a recent study from Data Science Central, it’s estimated that data scientists spend 60% of their time preparing data for analysis, rather than performing the analysis itself.  Therefore, the goal of this schema is to drive standardization so that more time can be spent analyzing it.
