Study of the FELTEN group: majority still inadequate conditions to the analysis of the performance values of the boardrooms of the manufacturing companies expect a controlling of production processes in increasing measure, but this not the necessary conditions according to a survey of the FELTEN group mostly still exist. Often lacking in particular methodological procedures and technical support, also the performance measurement systems are often inadequate. “Although the production in the past is not entirely come out without a controlling, it was however neither systematically nor consistently and with depth of possible today”, explains Werner Felten, Managing Director of the FELTEN group. A control function was more based on the previous selective approaches, while controlling production represents an analysis and control instrument according to today’s understanding to the optimization of production conditions. It derives from methods, which have already established themselves in the business processes.” So it is not surprising also that in more and more Company management a meaningful and effective production management expected. In almost every third case this requirement already exists, 19 percent of the over 200 production managers surveyed must deal only for a short time with this topic.

Another group of 22 percent but already senses that it is brought to them. However, the necessary conditions are only rarely, to perform a systematic controlling of the production. Not once every fifth manufacturing company is fully capable to do so, the others can realize this requirement only with different restrictions or not at all. Especially lacking in three out of five cases in technical assistance and analysis methods, to measure and evaluate for optimization measures the performance of the production. Similar to often lack an adequate performance measurement system. Half of the respondents but also admits that in the production management has not yet sufficient controlling powers exist, partially also the benefit of controlling production is doubted and it lacks its acceptance among employees. In addition, 40 percent of the production manager lead that they would have staff resources for controlling tasks enough. In this point, Felten but sees a significant miscalculation. Modern total productive management solutions automatically detect all the production process data and generate automatically individually defined reports, therefore a production management generates no significant additional cost,”he stressed. Because the idea of TPM is precisely to determine the cost-effectiveness of production and to make it possible, targeted to exploit resources and optimize machines and systems. The early identification and elimination of production errors include to increase overall productivity.”
