gartner-mfg-metrics-hierarchy-smlAccording to Gartner, "Mounting pressure to optimize costs, improve flexibility and manage complexity in manufacturing operations surface the need for defined, common measurements." 

We believe Gartner's Hierarchy of Manufacturing Metrics provides companies a portfolio of what the right metrics to measure are, why they are important, and how to use the information to:

  • Assess, diagnose and manage the health and cash efficiency of your operations
  • Plan a course of action to optimize performance
  • Identify potential root causes of any issues that arise
  • Improve responsiveness, flexibility and service levels to meet customer demands
