How to achieve high uptime in the current climate of uncertainty

Today’s business environment is unpredictable and fast-moving. To remain competitive, manufacturers must navigate multiple unknowns, like economic uncertainty, inflation and supply chain instability. Even in the face of these challenges, you need to satisfy customer requirements and dependably fulfill orders no matter what the volume. To do so, you need a reliable manufacturing base and optimized production environment.

Unplanned downtime costs more than ever

Production slowdowns and stoppages add up quickly in this challenging context.

Unplanned downtime and lost productivity can run up significant costs until the problem is resolved. In fact, according to a study, unplanned downtime costs manufacturers 50% more today than it did in the period 2019–20, due to skyrocketing inflation and higher-capacity production.
The same study estimates that for an average manufacturing facility in the industries surveyed, in two years’ time the cost of total losses to downtime has increased 65% to $129 million a year.
