What’s the biggest challenge our customers face on the plant floor? Ding ding ding—that’s right, managing alarms.
Last week, we held a webinar for customers on how to increase operator productivity. We polled the audience about their greatest challenges. Here was the list of possible responses:
- Too many alarms
- Not enough operators / budget
- Errors during manual processes
- High turnover of workers / lack of skills
- Complexity of processes
- Regulatory requirement
“Too many alarms” is still the biggest challenge! I thought high turnover of workers would win with so much of the experienced workforce retiring. By the way, regulatory requirements came in lowest.
