This results in daily practice to an inefficient interaction. Numerous examples of commercially unsuccessful relocation of production to low-wage countries have shown how despite the use of modern production technologies ultimately the productivity-enhancing quality of human labour power determines success. And because not all processes can be completely technically reproduce, the relationship must be balanced, better technology and human. 6. too much technology and system orientation: The actual potential to improve productivity in the processes, but the previous strategies are dominated by a technical focus. By a consistent and largely consistent process orientation is missing, structural weaknesses with economic disadvantages arise because existing optimization opportunities can only be exploited. 7. in the administrative processes too much potential is lost: the MES systems of traditional expression pursue no claim on improvements in the area of production management in their basic understanding.
Such a distinction but no longer corresponds to the needs of companies, because significant influences on productivity may arise from the conditions. In this respect a holistic management concept like total must be included in addition productive management (TPM) in the strategy for the management of production. 8 business and production processes are isolated from each other: the production and business are in the reality often largely separate worlds, although in interdependencies stand. The MES systems are but by their missing process orientation, not in a position to support the always necessary integration of business and production processes with integrated planning and control data. Production management should be considered in basic issues new, if the existing efficiency potential should be used “, describes Werner Felten, Managing Director of the FELTEN group, the need for action. New strategic principles should be developed instead of lose themselves in isolated measures, ensuring a sustainable higher performance quality and efficiency with new methods such as production intelligence.
