Every day, millions of companies in the manufacturing industry struggle to find a way to measure their work.
Usually the workers write their production data on a paper that is then delivered to the office staff by the end of the month. The office staff will then spend one to two weeks inserting the entire factory´s papers into an Excel spreadsheet.
This process is very expensive and time-consuming, it's very error prone, it's a very weak analysis and there is no real time management. If there is a low productivity or galloping waste, they will be detected only on a monthly basis, with the associated opportunity costs.
