Step It Down: Convey Don’t Pay!

2,600,000 steps, woot woot!!!  This is great news for achieving your exercise goals but may not be good news for optimizing your efficiency in the factory.

Here are a few interesting facts that often get overlooked when considering the wasted hours in a plant. Assuming a 100,000-square-foot facility, with a worker density of 1 worker per 100 square foot working 260 workdays/year (52/5), your workers walk 2,600,000 steps at work.  This translates into 518,473 hours or 21,603 days. 

Note:  Total Steps = Average Daily Steps * Working Days * Number of Workers = 10,000 steps/day * 260 days/year * 1,000 works = 2,600,000 steps.

This calculation applied to each shift = 518 annual hours /shift.

Not every step is directly linked to the movement of parts or products. However, parts still need to move between various stages of production, including receiving, storage, processing, assembly, and shipping. Material handling equipment such as conveyor systems, forklifts, or automated guided vehicles (AGVs) can help streamline the movement of parts within the facility. Furthermore, automated handling and conveying can release personnel for more productive tasks.

Conveyors, crucial in manufacturing

Conveyors play a crucial role in manufacturing processes and offer several advantages that enhance production, efficiency, and overall operation.  Some key advantages of using conveyors in manufacturing are:

  • Increased efficiency: enabling automation for the movement of materials and components.
  • Improved productivity: conveyors can handle heavy loads consistently or intermittently as required.
  • Enhanced safety: eliminate heavy lifting by employees.
  • Flexibility: there is a high degree of flexibility in layout and reconfiguration
  • Space Optimization: conveyors can be installed in overhead or elevated configurations, leaving more floor space for other operations and equipment.
  • Quality control: implementing sensors, scales and other monitoring devices allowing weight and quantity verification, detecting defects, and reducing product damage and mishaps.
  • Cost savings: increased efficiency, productivity and quality control, conveyors reduce labor costs and improve overall resource utilization.
