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
How can raw materials and labour wastage be monitored?
Raw materials and labour wastage can be monitored through various methods. These may include tracking material consumption, conducting regular audits, implementing waste reduction strategies, and analysing production data.
