TotalControlPro™ has assisted Mowden Controls in ensuring accurate costings and to remain competitive. They have full visibility of products at each stage of assembly, from batching through to shipping, with the ability to review operator performance and compare actual costs against predicted costs for each job. TotalControlPro™ provides needed real time feedback and valuable data on the consequences of, for example, altering production jig, cost effects of pre-forming parts for larger jobs or moving a production process. The team’s performance on a job can easily be recognised, reviewed and rewarded and the possibility of an outdated document remaining in circulation after an update has been eliminated.
"TotalControlPro™ enables us to review, optimise and reward performance and compare actual costs against predicted costs for each job..." Daniel Laverick- Production Manager
"As a bespoke subcontractor, we have hundreds of products and keeping an accurate record of process times was becoming an increasingly messy and demanding manual task. We reached out to TotalControlPro™ as a way to accurately track production on the workshop floor – enabling us to review both operator performance and compare actual costs against predicted for each job. We worked with TotalControlPro™ to record stages, work status and enable electronic diagrams to be shown to operators. This removed the requirement for operators to manually retrieve documentation and instantly eliminated the possibility of an outdated document remaining in circulation. Operators now welcome TotalControlPro™ - even those not computer literate - as the amount of work required to begin a new job is reduced, and their performance on a job can easily be recognised, reviewed and rewarded instead of relying on ‘being noticed’ for feedback. With all job stages being recorded and stored, this has allowed us to ensure accurate costings and remain competitive in an increasingly lean-priced market".
