Captive shops are internal shops located within larger companies. They can be machine shops, Fab shops, Tool Shops or whatever type of shop that is needed to supplement the larger organization. Even though these captive shops do most, if not all of their work for one company, they still face the same challenges as non-captive shops.
Some captive shops handle small quantities while other shops get into long running jobs. The only constant in a captive shop is CHANGE. The E2 Shop System can help you manage that constant change and help you manage the shop more effectively.
- Job Tracking is a definite hot spot for the captive shop. You need to know EXACTLY where the jobs are on the shop floor and how much work remains to be completed.
- The powerful, yet flexible scheduling whiteboard allows you to schedule the shop floor realistically. Run more jobs through the shop with fewer personnel.
- Purchase material directly for the job. No need to keep expensive raw material out on the floor until you're ready to use it. Set re-order levels for all of your material, tooling and inserts so you never run out of anything!
- Captive shops are always looking at ways to improve efficiencies. E2's estimated vs. actual gives you the visibility to see how the actual times compared against the estimated for a true performance analysis.
