True Cost of Downtime
Tuesday, February 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am HST
Operations leaders often suspect downtime is a high cost, but are often staggered to discover the true cost and its far-ranging impact on labor and talent to revenue and margin. This webinar will share templates, best practices, and specific examples of how to quantify and understand your cost of downtime, as well as straightforward steps to take action and impact your top and bottom line.
Major themes that will be covered in this webinar:
- The shift in sports/business/manufacturing – leveraging data to compete
- How to reduce unplanned downtime (root cause analysis, alerts, trends, reports)
- Making strategic decisions (make better capex decisions with an understanding of capacity and how much room their is for improvement)
- Realistic technology and where to start with real-time data so that it is not overwhelming
- Tracking and driving continuous improvement
