The manufacturing technology of the valve or the manufacturing process is the step of converting the raw material of the valve into the final product of the valve. The manufacturing process begins with the specification of the product and the specifications of the manufactured product. These valves and fittings materials are then modified into necessary components during the manufacturing process. Modern valves business includes all the intermediary processes mandatory to manufacture and integrate excellent valves product components. In some industries, such valves and steel manufacturers, use the word manufacturing instead.
In the valve industry, cost calculations are a prerequisite for success. In order to be competitive and profitable, manufacturers need to understand and master the three basic elements of manufacturing costs (direct costs, direct labor costs and production management costs).
Direct materials include all materials that will be part of the final product. Direct materials must include materials, freight charges, import duties, purchase fees, license fees, custodial fees and expenses directly attributable to the actual cost of materials purchased. Direct material must be deducted from transactions, quantities or discounts that are attributable to equipment and records.
Direct work includes the personnel costs required to produce the finished product. Direct work should include salaries, payroll taxes, benefits, etc. related to the human resources needed to manufacture the finished product.
The indirect costs of the plant include all other costs required to produce finished products that do not match direct materials or direct work items. They include mainly indirect materials, indirect labor, depreciation, utilities, leasing, repairs, maintenance and insurance.
In the current economic situation, companies are looking for ways to improve profitability and competitive advantage. The first step in these efforts is to conduct an operational assessment to determine the major advantages and disadvantages of the manufacturing process. The evaluation includes detailed examination and production of services and quality in areas such as production, management and staff capabilities, reporting standards and systems, inventory management, etc. Is initiated and the focus can be. Reducing costs before doing business evaluations does not necessarily increase efficiency or profitability.
The second phase of this work is a cost reduction project. The first step in this phase begins with comparing the company’s profitability with the average profit rate in the industry. It is important to consider several resources and industry publications to achieve average profitability in corresponding and comparable regions. All fixed and variable costs of the manufacturing process must focus on reduction, elimination, change, substitution or innovation objectives. Investigate direct purchases of equipment, freight, utilities, insurance, storage costs and other indirect manufacturing costs.
The point emphasized by all the interviewees in this article is the importance of the team approach. While engineers are always lagging behind new innovations, companies need to ensure that other employees in the company find what they need and that the results meet the needs of the customers we know. In addition, we hope to contact experts and academics as well as think tanks external to the company.
