Future-Proofing Your Workflow: Essential Tools for 2024

Updated: Dec 26, 2023

Streamline Your Workflow with Automation Tools

When you think automation in manufacturing, you're thinking robots that will replace humans on an assembly line. Let's think about automation on a smaller workflow scale to help your small business. Simple automation tools such as barcodes on your travelers, Google Forms for maintenance logs, or even a simple electric stapler can make your day-to-day operations a little smoother. By implementing simple automation tools that your team can use, you can streamline processes, reduce errors, and save valuable time.

We use automation in our shop by automating our quality documents in our management system. We go from customer orders, customer returns, non conformances, and invoices all in one platform. This eases the papertrail chase within the office to help you focus on more important things.

Embrace the Potential of Learning Machines and AI

Learning machines and AI have been a buzzword in recent years, and understandably, there is some fear surrounding their implementation. However, we firmly believe that embracing technology is essential to staying ahead of the competition. AI tools such as workflow checklists, product roadmaps templates, and marketing tools are simple yet effective ways that you can integrate into your manufacturing processes. These tools can help with quality control, production planning, and customer communication. Tools such as software that automates mundane tasks like data extraction can significantly save you time and improve accuracy. By implementing ways to reduce tasks like entering part numbers, descriptions, and revisions in quotes and travels helps your team work more efficiently and reduce human error.

We use Paperless Parts to streamline our quoting process which has safe AI models integrated into their secure system to help us work faster and smarter. Their top of the line system allows for us to easily input part numbers, revision numbers, and part description which can slow you down on large quoting packages.
