Regaining control (Gerry Frizelle).
Companies who wish to get more from their manufacturing control systems are the target for this workbook.
The process has three stages. The first is to link the required performance of the manufacturing control system to the company objectives. The second stage is to assess if there are ways to simplify/make the present system more reliable. Issues such as data accuracy are addressed here.
The final section is to look at generic commercial control systems that are available and decide which is the most appropriate. On that depends whether to improve what already exists or go for something new.
