Rejects are classified as products that don’t meet standards due to mistakes or errors during the manufacturing process. Depending on the complexity of the product, it may even be impossible to recycle it back into raw materials. Not to mention, if the manufacturing error is not corrected quickly, it may mass-produce rejected products, greatly affecting expenses. Rejects are unsellable, they waste raw materials, and decrease the yield of production. In the case of a molding machine, if it was to produce 10 incorrect parts every day, it could represent a loss of $140 a month, just in machine time.
Production Monitoring can easily solve this problem by noticing inconsistencies with the products or the production process. Like the downtime solution, Production Monitoring gives insight to equipment by sending notifications to a worker if a problem is occurring. Corrective action can then be taken to minimize the reject count. This in turn will maintain efficiency, and therefore sustain steady profits.
