Productive Process Pyramid

Tackle process variation at source...

Process variation is the enemy of competitiveness and profitability. It causes waste and inefficiency, leads to high quality costs and manning levels, and results in late deliveries and poor traceability.

The secret to consistent, automated, and productive machining is to understand where variation comes from and how to deal with it at source. Renishaw's Productive Process Pyramid™ provides a framework within which to identify and control variation in your factory, backed by innovative technology, proven methods and expert support. Renishaw can help bring your goal of 'green button' or 'lights out' machining into reach.
