Two significant challenges are facing the print industry: labor shortages and inefficiency. They are related, and there is a path to manage them, but it takes more than trying to find people to hire and tightening business and production workflows. The industry needs a new approach to understanding business bottlenecks. It also needs innovation, powered by automation, that leverages available data to assign staff only where they are needed to add value to essential processes.
Join us on February 23 at 1 p.m. ET for the latest in WhatTheyThink’s LunchNLearn Webinar series. In this 30-minute session presented by WhatTheyThink contributor Pat McGrew and Pixel Dot Consulting’s Ryan McAbee, learn how to leverage your shop floor data to improve operations and optimize the deployment of people.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- What are “Observational Platforms” and what can they tell you?
- What data can you capture and how can you use it to improve operations?
- How “dashboards” combine available data and present it in a graphical format to provide fast insights into the current status.
- How to use two specific Observational Platforms
