Why work with Harford Control?
Over several decades, Harford Control has worked tirelessly with a wide range of factories in order to optimise their production performance.
With the Harford Manufacturing Execution System (MES) tailored to your needs, you will more easily reduce errors, find the hidden wastage and consequently become more efficient, whilst continuing to deliver consistently high quality products, making your business more profitable and sustainable.
Most manufacturers are facing ever increasing input and transformation costs with few opportunities to increase the output price to their customers.
This should encourage manufacturers to look more deeply into their production processes to find the hidden costs, eliminate wastage and thereby improving efficiency without compromising quality.
The problem of rising costs and fix output costs is nothing new and will not end. Therefore performance improvement to drive down transformation costs must be continuous.
Who we have helped
What is production quality?
Production quality refers to the level of excellence or conformance achieved in the manufacturing process, ensuring that products meet established standards and customer expectations. It involves implementing rigorous quality control measures, conducting inspections, and employing advanced techniques to deliver consistent, high-quality products.
Why is production quality important?
Production quality is vital for customer satisfaction, brand reputation, and market competitiveness.
