Reduce Wasted Time

Want to improve manufacturing cycle time? Eliminate the time sinks.

Leela Platform can help manufacturers reduce all forms of waste summarized by the acronym DOWNTIME: Defects, Overproduction, Waiting, Non-Utilized Skills and Creativity, Transportation, Inventory Excess, Motion, and Excessive Processing. The biggest payoff comes from decreasing wasted labor, which is most commonly caused by production workers waiting for supplies or the next product unit.

Leela Platform can spot minor bottlenecks on your line that you might miss, but which add up to significant wasted labor over time. Unless you measure all the processes involved in production, you may not realize that manufacturing cycle time has been lagging and takt time increasing. Delays are often missed by IIoT sensor analytics and the human eye.

Our production monitoring system quickly identifies the cause of delays and can often suggest a solution. The software enables better estimates of lean manufacturing takt time and generates insights that lead to improved cycle time consistency. The ability to continuously compare cycle times across different shifts and production lines offers a powerful insight into bottlenecks and other potential problems that might have gone unnoticed.

Our manufacturing monitoring software also excels at spotting inefficient human motion that slows the production process. By leveraging Leela Platform’s advanced pose detection and motion analysis algorithms, industrial engineers can discover overlooked flaws in workstation setup and product placement. They can then begin to implement the right lean manufacturing improvements to optimize production.
