Success in manufacturing is often the result of continuous improvements to both business and production processes. Our customers demand increasingly higher quality products delivered quickly and cost-effectively. This means we must constantly seek new methods and technologies to reduce production costs, while maintaining the integrity of our products and meeting tighter delivery schedules.
Unfortunately, change is sometimes met with resistance by employees for a variety of reasons, including fear of losing their jobs, resentment because they see change as devaluing their current efforts, or being stuck in “we’ve always done it that way” thinking.
Whether you’re simply replacing a machine tool with a more advanced model, introducing other technologies such as robotics or 3D printing, or moving into the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), here are 5 ways to help people accept change.
Finally, the smoother you make the transition to new manufacturing technologies, the easier it will be for your employees to accept and embrace the future. Having served the manufacturing community with innovative products and services for more than 95 years, Gosiger has the people and experience to make change as painless as possible.
